Pollo Tropical Restaurant Review

: Consistently tasty fare---that is, yes, fast food, but with a solid regional slant---makes this chain Miami’s answer to KFC, Cuban-style. Pollo Tropical's chicken parts are grilled skin-on, for superior flavor, leaving decisions regarding removing the fatty bits where they belong---with consumers. You can also choose from flame-grilled ribs, mojo-marinated roast pork topped with sautéed onions, and white cheese-stuffed fried yuca poppers with creamy cilantro-garlic sauce. A wide range of dipping sauces and sides (some low-fat, but not low in flavor) insure that diners are never bored.
