Hubby thought this might be ok and trip advisor had good reviews. NEver again. One piece of chicken was warm and the second was hot, didn't like the bland rice. Hubby didn't like the ribs.

We ate here probably 3 times during our 3 night stay. Good food for those on a budget and a nice little walk from the Newport Beachside Hotel. My favorite was the chicken quesadilla wrap!

We got takeout from Pollo Tropical and all enjoyed our food. We tried the chicken, ribs, quesadilla (really a wrap more than a quesadilla), chicken and rice bowl, and the plantains. The sauce bar was great but we spent more time getting little cups of sauce than it took for them to fill the order. The order for 5 people... More

I ordered a 1/4 chicken with rice and beans plus balsamic tomatoes. not bad for a fast food type dinner.Tomatoes were a little mushy, but for $5.19 you can't expect gourmet food.

Better quality healthy fast food than burgers. Chichen is good with nice sides. Its a self serve type. We tries a number of items and all were good.

This is a fast food place, but better than the typical burger drive through. Liked the chicken. The garlic cilantro was just too garlicy. quesadillas were wraps, not sure why they were called quesadillas.

I was pleasantly surprised by the menu variety options. The prices are very reasonable and good potions. We will stop by from the beach to try some more menu selections. I have my eyes on the soup.

Every time I go to Miami, I always have to go to Pollo tropical. I wish they'd come to my city! Great taste. Great choices of Cuban foods.

The food was good and well prepared. The chicken was good, but a little greasy for grilled chicken. The sides were excellent though. Good rice and beans.

Thank nievesl366
