A great roasted chicken for only US$10.00 that includes a whole chicken, potatoes, rice, corn tortillas, salsa, beans and a 2 lts drink. The chicken is marinated in achiote paste, giving the chicken that great flavor.

Fresh grill chicken everyday at a local price! Very popular with the locals. Near the beach and near the entrance of Playacar. Rice is not very good... But really good chicken !
