When our friends told me they would take us to eat rice and beans, a popular Brazilian dish, I was somewhat confused. Being a Brazilian myself, I couldn't expect that in Florida. However, it was true. And Pollo Tropical offers a delicious homemade taste we all have come to know and appreciate. The accompanying roast chicken and fries were delicious.... More

I ordered a trio platter of ribs chicken and pork to split for dinner. Everything tasted good and not processed. I ordered yucca bites with cheese stuffing but they didn't put the cilantro sauce in the bag. Bummer. I used the drive thru. Worth it.

Pollo tropical is just another garbage fast food chain restaurant ran like a robot . Local managers or corporate could care less of your concerns . My grandfather past away , I ordered multiple items . Completely screw up when I pick up order and took home. No remorse or resolve . Garbage.

For something different we swang through here instead of KFC and we're glad we did. Be sure to ask for their various specialty sauces -- they're delicious. Reasonably priced.

We tasted a number of different dishes, since we are not from Florida. The yucca and plantains were very good. Pulled Pork was not available and the chicken was dry but flavorful.

Many people do not realize that you can have healthy fast food in places like this. Just chicken, not fried with dough balls all over it. Served with sides like rice and black beans. This is not just a place for Spanish food, it is a place to have a very different experience.

The food is prepared fresh. The service is fast and friendly. This is a good stop for lunch or dinner on the way home.

I've always used their drive thru but last time I went in the restaurant and found the tables greasy and the place not clean. Won't be going there again.
