If chicken places were rated this would be number one. We eat lunch there every year at least 2 or 3 times. The chicken is amazing. You have different choices of meals. I get the 1/4 chicken with the breast and wing. It is served...More

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 !

We were wandering around Playa Del Carmen, were hungry, and stopped at El Pechugon. What a find! Prices were great, but the chicken and potatoes were amazing - the potatoes cook in the chicken drippings and are salted, seriously the best ever. My vegetarian daughter...More
