A must if in the city of Tulum! Could possibly be the most delicious grilled chicken I've even eaten! Very inexpensive and very tasty.

This is excellently prepared chicken. When looking for an inexpensive meal in Tulum one can't do much better than stopping into Pollo Bronco. We've had the chicken several times, and is always amazing. You won't believe what you get for your pesos here.

An entire, mouthwatering, slow-grilled chicken with a side of rice, cole slaw, tortillas, and sauce for $7.50 US??? You bet we ate there more than once!! More than 2 of us could eat, so we would make sandwiches with the rest of the meat the next day. I can still taste it!!

I was so hungry-- it was one of those hot days where you wander aimlessly. I wanted something filling and full of protein and just plain delicious. Here it is. Get there before 7:00 pm (they close). Fantastic for a great and simple lunch experience. Locals.

This is the best grilled chicken I ever had! So tender, moist and amazing flavour. Accompanied by salad, rice and tortillas. Prices are really low. Very good experience!

Simple menu with the most amazing food! My husband and I split a half a chicken with rice, cole slaw, salsa, tortillas and guacamole and had more than enough food. I would have eaten there again had we spent more time in Tulum.

This is one of many small store front restaurants on Avenida Tulum, but is an experience you won't want to miss. I tried this place on a visit several years ago and loved it, and was excited to see it still in operation when I returned to Tulum last week. Since my visit a few years ago they've added a... More

The chicken was so awesome that we went back twice. Staff was friendly and I'm already craving it! I can't wait to eat there when we go back to Tulum! 160 pesos for a whole chicken which included rice, tortillas and slaw.
