This place serves the best chicken on the planet, no question. There is no menu to speak of, just order how much chicken you want and it comes with rice, salsa and tortillas.

Great chicken joint for a quick bite to eat. Convenient to the ADO bus terminal, too. The restaurant is basic, but service is great. Cheap and delicious!

Great place for a quick meal. We got our food in less then 5 minutes, as chickens are continuously being grilled. Antonio our waiter was super nice, and even gave us some tips and directions at the end of the meal.

Local tree posts surround the quaint quite corner restaurant. The large wood oven in the rear is easy to watch them prepare and cook the pizzas. The pizza was outstanding with fresh veggies and the best sauce we've tasted in years. The mozzarella cheese was soooo stringy it was hard to get a piece to your mouth unattached. We both... More

I'm a chicken fan and this was ok for me. My boyfriend wasn't keen. The food was fresh cooked for us with plenty to of sides so you did leave full and it's inexpensive. I would probably pop back for lunch or to grab a quick snack. The WiFi was good.

That usually happens when my concern is the annihilation of the meal of food in front of me instead of taking a picture of my food. This was the first of many great restaurants we enjoyed in Tulum and might have been the best. I know it might just be chicken cooked over charcoal but WOW! I wish I knew... More

On a stroll back to our hotel we stumbled upon this gem. Very economical, delicious and freshly grilled marinated chicken. It's $9.00 for a whole chicken and sides. Without having an actual plan in mind we had bought an extra whole grilled chicken one night. It worked out perfectly to pack up and take with us the next day on... More

Maybe it's the heat or long hours that wears done customer service. We came for a take out order. We were treated like we were intruders, near hostile. Not returning here.

The aroma wafting out of this hole in the wall spot on the Avenida will catch your attention and pique your appetite. The dining area of this budget eatery is no frills but the roasted chicken is moist, flavorful and tender. It is accompanied by tortillas, cabbage and salsa. This is a very local experience in every way. The food... More
