Place is awesome. Stopped on our arrival into town and spent $40. Tortillas, bean, rice galore. Enough to feed and army and oh how good.

Simple and delicious. A real bargain. Only problem was that I fed half my dinner to the stray dogs that gather in and out of the open air dining area.

By far the best chicken in Sonora! Watching the cooks make your meal fresh before your eyes is awesome and the laid bake atmosphere of the restaurant is amazing. A must go for the next time you go to Rocky Point.

A highlight of our visits to Rocky Point is getting a meal at Pollo Lucas. The chicken is moist and very flavorful. The beans are spicy and tasty. And the tortillas and sides are high quality. Whether we eat in the rustic palapa, or take home, the experience is consistently good!

Great chicken at fantastic prices. You can watch the chicken being cleavered and grilled. Eat in or take out. Parking is plentiful and you might even get your car washed while you're eating. This is also a fun place for people watching! And bird watching as well, as sparrows hop all around the table tops once people leave. Chicken and... More

The chicken and beans and rice were good but that was all that they had. We asked for guacamole but they did not carry it. Good chicken but that was it. Modestly priced.

If you are looking for grilled chicken look no further than Pollo Lucas! Note they don't serve alcohol but you can bring your own beer in if you like.

I have been going to this place on each trip to Rocky Point but was worried what I would miss out on being on a paleo/ketosis diet this trip. One bright and shining moment on the trip was another dinner at Pollo Lucas. Yes, I had to skip the wonderful tortillas, but I was able to eat wonderful pollo asado... More

It's all about the chicken and it's darn good. Great sides and the location outside under a huge palapa is festive and fun. Next time we're passing we're going to get it to-go and have a feast at home. Highly recommended.
