This casual, counter-service chain is a favorite for Caribbean grilled chicken and pork platters, sandwiches, and other options. Fit for a fast bite, nothing fancy, Pollo Tropical is your casual stop for great chicken at an affordable price. This casual café is not quite fast-food, yet far from fine dining.

2 years.


It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
