pollos asados

Hi all, I'm going to be in Playa on Friday and I was wondering if anyone had any updates on the pollo situation. It sounds like some have moved and some have closed. Last year I finally found Star Chicken but I found out that it had just closed that week. Any new info would be appreciated. teddy

2nd at 20th (Asadero el Pollo Estilo Sinaloa) remains my favorite pollo. It's more expensive, and worth it.

The only pollo in town with the guarantee:
"If you chicken isn't hot and juicy, send it back!"

Thanks, James. For the life of me, I couldn't remember the name and location of this place. The pollo there is excellent as is the service.

Pollo estilo Sinaloa

James and Denise,

What seasonings or marinades makes it pollo estilo Sinaloa?

Thanks,
Alicia

More Pollo Asados

Just remembering our Tulum tour last year and the lunch that came with it, which I believe was chicken asado with all the trimmings. I've read this whole thread and I see there are a bunch of places listed to get the chicken, but I also know that since the thread started, some have closed down. So of the ones open now, which are the best ones?

Looking for an update to this thread is what it comes down to. It was such great chicken! Thanks.

I went on the Tulum tour a month and a half ago. The pollo that was served for lunch was from Pollos Bronco. It is sooo good.

On this past visit to PdC, I had lunch at Pollos Estilo Sinaloa which James had mentioned in an earlier post. Great roasted chicken plus the fixings; also inexpensive.

Yum!! Will add those to my ever growing list of places to try! Do you happen to have a cross-street reference for the Pollos Bronco? Thanks!

Pollos Bronco

I know that Pollos Bronco is on the left side as you are going into Tulum pueblo. I believe it is after the Boca Paila turnoff and before the bus station (the bus station is on the right).

you'll find two Pollo Bronco outlets in Tulum, both on the left hand side heading south.

I've been digging the pollo Santiago lately

James, unfortunately I did not get to try Asadero el Pollo Estilo Sinaloa. I got confused and ended up getting my roast bird at Pollo Rojo at 15th ave and 2nd. Still an awfully good bird...! Next time I will try your place up the street.

I wanted to try Pollo Rojo but everytime I went by it was closed. Pollo Estilo Sinaloa is up the street a couple of blocks or so.
