This is one of those times when I want to score a place '4', but cleanliness knocked it down a notch. I mean, cmon - check the sauce bar every hour and clean it up! I couldn't even see the name of the BBQ sauce...More

Every time I am in Florida I find a Pollo Tropical. Good chicken, yucca in butter, green. Evans and cottage fries. It is steps above KFC and makes you feel like you are back in the islands! Decor is standard but always clean

Got two pork meals to take out and truthfully we feel it's superior to pollo tropical's chicken which we find is often over cooked. Pork was moist and delicious, rice, beans and plantains fabulous. :-)

Standard Pollo Tropical décor, easy entrance and parking, and very busy. They have a good staff, the standard menu, most of the customers are local and latin. I had ice tea, chicken breast, yellow rice, onions and salsa.

Were initially introduced to the tasty latin cuisine served up by Pollo Tropical at this restaurant location in S Miami. We would often go back for a latin fix when we wanted that delicious, wonderfully seasoned, tender, moist flame broiled chicken with all the fixins!!!!...More

Best option for fast food. Real food to go. Everything is fresh because there is always people on the drive trough and inside. Recommended.

First time at Pollo Tropical. It was ok, but not really good. The chicken was not very flavorful. The yellow rice was ok, the white rice very bland. The beans had little texture. The Tres Leches Cake was actually pretty good, nice spicey flavor.
