Pollo Bollo is a wonderful find..... it is very popular with Mexicans and tourists, a fun atmosphere and exceptionally good food. Chicken, of course, is the best. We were lost in the winding streets of Yelapa and a friendly local (who spoke no English) guided us through the alleys and backyard to Pollo Bollo. (It is easy to find, however,... More

Got the mixed chicken and rib plate - it turned out to be a really huge portion - more food than I could even eat (almost). :) It's a busy, popular place for a reason.

The BBQ chicken was tasty, but not warm enough, which I should have questioned. The salad was wilted and I did not trust it being safe. I ate anyway, and was sick in the night. So was my husband. I should have listened to my gut feeling (pun intended)

The twinkling white Christmas lights, air of joviality (everyone seems to know everyone else) and even a couple of friendly little doggies and kitties sauntering through (this IS Yelapa, land of the blissed out friendly animals, so if you have a problem with dogs and cats in restaurants, you wouldn't be comfortable here in the first place) give Pollo Bollo...

We ate at this restaurant 3 times and each time the food was so good and the service was great. BBQ ribs were so yummy and my favourite. This place can fill up so it is best to go early 6:30 pm. One night they had 3 milk cake....also so delicious.

Yelapa is a fishing village turned tourist village. You eat seafood there. Seriously, you don't go to Mexico for the meat. Unless, of course, you go to Pollo Bollo. Being a Texas smoked BBQ snob I would have never thought about trying BBQ in Yelapa but it smelled so good and looked so good and, frankly, I was getting a... More

As a lover of Tri-Tip and one who grills it often, I was amazed at how tender and flavorful it was at Pollo Bollo. We ate here three times during the week and I had to get it every time just because I simply could not resist. I'd go back to Yelapa just to get it again; even it was... More

I had the rotisserie chicken, which was good, but just a heads up it came with a heavy coat of barbecue sauce. My husband's fajitas were very good, with lots of chicken and vegetables. Service was friendly, and the patio was pleasant.

The BBQ chicken was delicious...but THE FLAN was to die for. We strolled into town headed for another location, but it appeared closed. Thank goodness!!! I got to try the flan!
