Default I would love to see Pollo tropical TV

We lived in south Florida and pollo tropical had a huge present there. It’s Cuban /Latino fast food with a twist they serve a very healthy “fast food” there I just loved that place really would love to see them here

It’s a franchise, so just need to invest. 2 have been closed near Disney Springs since 2020. The one in Gainesville is still only drive thru, for weeks, there hasn’t been any pork. That’s half of the menu.
If you want Cuban food there is Tom’s off I-75, that has a great Cuban sandwich

Yes it would be good I enjoy trips out of the bubble to Costco/Bj’s near The Mall at Millenia. Although limited seating it’s adequate

Love Pollo Tropical from South Florida. If they were here, I'd get food from them once a week, just like I did there. Especially the marinated grill chicken, so good with all the sauces.

Their flan is ok, for mass production. Pollo just adds a extra flavor experience, that you won’t get at Tom’s Cuban Restaurant, or in Miami

Thanks, Gracie. Re: Pollo Tropical, Mr. or Mrs.Legges described it perfectly. I never did figure out exactly what was in the seasoning but I think it must be lime. Not that crazy about Cuban food in general but Pollo Tropical offered three things, fast, cheap, and delicious.

We had this Pollo joint where we lived in N.J.

Trust me, I'm diversified with my food taste and Spanish food is my favorite. You are not really missing much by not having this restaurant here. Sorry but I'm just trying to keep it real. Ay, Dios, Mío!
