I came here on vacation and was curious to try what looked like a local chain. Especially in the absence of other caribbean and latin food in the area. Sadly my bf came down with a severe stomach ache after eating this. I hadn't gotten to mine yet so while I was sad to see him cramping I was grateful... More

I had a coupon for a lunch for only 4.99 and that included a drink. Well, the coupon did not disappoint! I got the chicken with black beans, saffron rice with vegetables and on top I went with chopped tomatoes, onion and green pepper. The food was fresh, tasty, and a refreshing change from prefab and fried stuff. The chicken... More

I give this place high marks. It only serves Chicken and Pork with a little bit of a Caribbean flair. Modestly priced. Chicken was very tasty. Great place for a quick meal. 5 of us ate there for lunch. Everyone was very complementary of their meal from Kababs to the Chicken to Wraps. They have a great variety of sauces... More

The food is always great here but I really wish the staff was a bit more professional. We went by once thru the drive thru and a handful of them were standing right by the window eating and joking around. They were much too worried about when they were getting off rather than the customers. And our order wasn't even... More

It is lent so we decided to go to Polo Tropical for a simple meal. They had advertised a shrimp and rice meal. We ordered it and it was excellent. We also ordered a side of the sweet plantains. They are terrific. Good value for the money spent. The restaurant was clean and the service was good.

I have been to several pollo tropical locations and this is one of the better ones. The service was friendly and courteous. The food was prepared well and plentiful. Highly recommend it for an alternative the greasy spoon joints.

Stopped with friends for lunch, liked the way the chicken is prepared. Very good, tasty, quick and reasonable prices. Selection of sides is varied and ones we tried were very good.

My favorite on the go place for a quick but healthier choice than nearly all other fast food places. My personal favorite is the Tropi-Chop with choice of meats (chicken, pork, maybe another?), choice of rice (brown, yellow, white), choice of toppings (corn, black beans, chopped tomatoes, and/or peppers and onions. There is a huge choice of sauces from which... More

Back again for good food and fair prices. We both ordered the half chicken and rice with tomatoes. While you order fast food style, you get your drinks and sit down anywhere you want. Inside or outside. When your order is ready, they deliver it to your table. It is served fresh and hot. When finished, you leave your plates... More
