Because the food is fantastic and te people are friendly, this is our favorite Pollo Tropical in our area. Everything I have eaten has been excellent. The restaurant is clean. In nice weather, the outdoor patio seating is lovely. Their grilled chicken is delicious and the mojo pork is flavorful and juicy. ALL the sauces are delicious. Our family likes... More

Great plantains, good black beans and the roasted pork is decent. The rice is below average, especially for a Caribbean restaurant. For a fast food place, it's alright but the service could be better.

Haven't been to Pollo Tropical in a while but it wasn't a good experience. Visited the location at 7 pm and was told they ran out of chicken and would take 20 mins. Wife and daughter ordered tropichops with a $ 2.49 side of Mac n cheese that was dry and barely 3 bites (unfortunately they ate it before I... More

WE love Pollo Tropical! The chicken is great! We love the chicken sandwich and the wraps. The rice and beans are great sides!

I've seen a few negative comments here and yes, Caribe food is not for everyone; and this is not fast food. We loved it, was fresh, hot, prompt considering order and service was very good. Went on BIZ and then took FAMIKY. Great alternative to refined/processed .99 cent norm

Had luch here a couple of times. Their chicken dishes are OK but no better than just OK. If you want yours cooked a little longer or you want a tballe cleaned so that you can be seated lots of luck. We were not able to achieve either one.

I found out last year that there was a Pollo Tropical in Lawrenceville. I try to eat there each time I am in town. I used to go there in Florida every time I visited. Great food, great food, great food.

It is really sad to see that a restaurant that everywhere else serves excellent food and has outstanding service... Can have a location like this one doing the exact opposite... Received wrong order... Yuca fries were disgusting... Really? How in the world can you mess up fries??? 😳 Quality is horrible

The girl that took my order was miserable. I looked like I was annoying her because I asked for rice. They were out of rice! This place serves chicken and rice! Then it took 15 minutes to get my food. On top of all of that there was a crazy woman screaming to get her food. She was there before... More

Our first time at this location and we were not pleased. The greasy film that covered the entrance door and glass could have been over looked. Once inside there were about 6 empty tables that had been cleared but not wiped down. The ice machine was not working so they had two containers with ice sitting in water and a... More
