We get a whole bird each time we visit and never regret it. We usually have it for lunch the next 2-3 days. Very tasty and juicy! We love it!

Had lunch here on the last trip. 3 people shared one chicken, with the sides. Food was good quality, tasty, and fast. The whole meal was 150 pesos. Dirt cheap . Will definitely eat here again.

If you want a quick meal stop in a order take out. or you can eat it there also. The chicken was enough for 2 suppers and it tasted just as good the second night

We ordered a chicken with all the fixings to go and were very pleasantly surprised. We have visited Isla many times but this was our first experience with this restaurant. The chicken was hot and delicious and with the tortillas, fed three adults. For around $7, this is an exceptional deal for lunch. The location is very convenient, located right... More

We got a whole chicken with rice, beans,peppers and pickled onions for 150 pesos. It was delicious and we had enough for two lunches from one order. So good and great on the budget.

We always have chicken and ribs on Sunday. Best chicken meal we have found. But go early as they sell out! Complete with beans, rice, salad.

I ate at a similar style chicken bbq on the island in 1994 and honestly, this place was not up to par. The half bird was, well, less than I expected. Tasty but not filling.The beans and rice and tortillas were ok. The price was reasonable but I would have liked more of a meal for the money.

We eat at this little hole in the wall at least once every trip. Great rotisserie chicken with all the fixins for cheap!
