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!

We got the whole rotisserie chicken which was more than enough for 2. Dinner came with rice, beans, onions, jalapenos and tortillas for a great price.

Formally one of the better chicken joints on the Island, now average. They don't keep "regular" hours as they list & have become rather aloof with customers...sad

Whole chicken with sides more than enough for two people. Tender, flavorful, cheap! Been going there every trip I make to the island since the late 90's.
