Great casual dining on this well established So. Florida chain. Ribs are good, chicken is moist and flavorful. All grilled. Good sides. Sauces, and specials. Reasonably priced. My favorite in So Florida.

Fries were almost black, chicken sandwich was cold and had 2 strange looking pieces of tomato on it, soda not refillable and more than half was ice. Don’t know if this is the Pollo Tropical standard?
