From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Pollo Tropical (lit. Tropical Chicken in Spanish) is a fast food restaurant chain specializing in the Floribbean cuisine of South Florida (a fusion of Cuban food and Caribbean food). Pollo Tropical is owned and operated by Carrols Corporation. The chain has its headquarters in Kendall, unincorporated Miami-Dade County, Florida.[1][2]

The first Pollo Tropical opened in November 1988, in Miami. The chain has over 70 company-owned restaurants in Florida and more than 20 franchised units throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, including over 10 in Puerto Rico, and Ecuador. The company has expanded restaurants into the New York City market, with a location in Brooklyn , as well as Woodbridge, North Bergen, Little Ferry and Clifton in New Jersey.

The restaurants are best known for its marinated and grilled chicken served with black beans and rice. Some common side dishes are french fries, salads, plantain, and fried yuca.

Pollo Tropical bought and renamed all the Central Florida "TropiGrill" locations to Pollo Tropical. TropiGrill had similar style restaurants and menus as Pollo Tropical.
