Ordered whole chicken, it's prepared slowly on fire/grill, my whole family love it. It's not easy to find place where all four agree one same thing, and yes we agreed it's amazing!

I know they sell chicken but it is delicious, it is a very popular to the locals as well as tourists. The place tends to be busy at times but for good reason and this place is well worth the wait. I stop here every time Im in Rocky Point. Order rice and beans too you will not be disappointed.

Almost as good as finding a hundred dollar bill on the side walk. This place is awesome. You can buy enough food to feed an army and still have half of that $100 left!!! The chicken is simply beyond words. Stop reading reviews and just go!!! Seriously...don't ponder. Go. Now.

Best place in town. Chicken is amazing, rice/beans and perfect, their tortillas should be it's own food group and the prices are almost illegal (only kidding). Full chicken, rice, beans and tortillas for less than $20. Don't miss this place.

Pollo Lucas is an open air restaurant where they grill whole chickens over a wood fire. The place can get very busy, so be prepared to wait a bit, but it will be worth it. Chicken, beans, rice, cabbage, onions, salsa, tortillas, and soft drinks (no beer). ¡Muy rico!

Not a very good experience the place is so smoky and the service was not great. We had tacos de tripa tasted like dirt I could not take a second bite.

Everything was very good and it was $25.00 for 2 whole chickens, rice and beans. It was a bit salty for my taste but no one else seemed to mind.
