Pollo Tropical offers an alternative to the typical burgers-and-fries fare featured on most fast-food menus. The fresh, grilled chicken marinated in tropical fruit juices and spices is definitely the chain's featured item, but roast pork, ribs, ropa vieja (shredded beef), and skewered steak and shrimp are also options. Sides range from the chain's signature white rice and black beans, to yelow rice with vegetabloes, fries, balsamic tomatoes, yuca with garlic sauce, caesar salad, and kernel corn. Sandwiches and salads are also available. Pollo Tropical also offers Family Meals - featuring a main item and sides - that are perfect for take-home dining. Desserts selections include Latin favorites such as Tres Leches cake and flan. TropiChiller frozen fruit smoothies are a hot-weather hit.
