The reviews on TripAdvisor brought us here and we were not disappointed. Juicy delicious chicken, great beans and rice with prompt, friendly service. We felt like locals, and that's exactly what we wanted. FYI cash only.

We have dined here twice. This little restaurant is a quaint, open air gem in PPenasco. They feature BBQ chicken marinated in orange juice BBQ'd on the grill in front of you! The fare is basic but inexpensive, service is very good and is in Spanish but we are all able to make ourselves understood. Bring your own wine or... More

f fresh juicy chicken grilled over coals in a relaxed Mexican atmosphere appeals to you Pollo Lucas is your place. Easy to spot on the west side of Hwy 8 often located by charcoal smoke rising into the air. In true Mexican style the restaurant has a thatched roof, open front and paver flooring. Aside from chicken asado side dishes... More

We had fast and great service. The chicken is delicious. It is served with sides of pickled onions and cabbage. The beans and rice were good also. What is amazing is we ate for $5 per person. Really a great place!

Service is pretty much nonexistent and the food takes a while, but the food is so good you don't care. Lots of tables, plenty of parking, convenient location. Great chicken and salsa and amazing rice and beans. That's all there is on the menu and it's all fantastic.

Reviews are right! Amazing!! The chicken was amazing, moist and the flavor on the skin was to die for. So good! And seriously so cheap! Could not believe the food you go for the money! You'll get a car wash while you eat from some local boys so have some $1s available.

Yes, this place is great: fantastic grilled chicken, with fresh flour tortillas and some taco fixin's. And, yes, that is all there is on the menu, other than some optional sides like beans, rice, and macaroni salad. I will note so that it comes up on TripAdvisor's search engine that my vegetarian son was totally satisfied making his tacos with... More

The place was recommended by many people in town for great food at a great price and it lived up to its hype. You walk in, find a table to fit your group, sit down and wait to a server. The place was packed so I couldn't complain about slow service and I loved the authentic feel to the place... More
