    Stopped by here for lunch for no other reason that the great reviews. It was my sister-in-law, my mother and myself. My sister-in-law ordered the Cubano, my mother the P.R. Sandwich and I had the beef bomb and a soda I'd never heard of before. My sister-in-law said the sandwich was fine. That is, she didn't claim it was any better or worse than other Cuban sammiches she's had in the past. My mother didn't finish a quarter of her P.R. citing she didn't care for the spices used. My sandwich wasn't bad, but it was less the Philly cheese steak style I was expecting and more a Manwich with taco seasonings. While it wasn't bad, it wasn't great. And for the price I can't complain. The largest drawback to eating there wasn't the food though, it was the lackadaisical adherence to mask requirements. Although the door clearly had a sign saying masks were required, no one was wearing masks but our party. One gentleman had a mask on, but it wasn't covering his mouth or nose and an entire party of construction workers wore none at all. Others came into the restaurant without masks as well. With the restaurant being close quarters their cavalier attitude towards Covid-19 ensures no one from our party will return anytime soon. That bring said, the owners were incredibly nice and even offered my mother a replacement sandwich. When she declined he offered her gumbo which she begrudgingly took. To be fair, my mother doesn't have the most adventurous pallette. I'd like to give the place a try again next time I'm in town and Covid has passed, but probably won't be making the short trek over until then.

    We dropped by the Pollo Rico Restaurant in Thonotosassa for lunch. The food was good, the service was friendly. I will probably eat there again. The place is a little rundown, but it is a lunch eatery without any bells or whistles. It has a very laid-back atmosphere which is reflected in the staff and building.

    I was looking up places to eat and this was the first place that popped up. I noticed that it had 4.4 stars so I decided to give it a try. I ordered over the phone and the man I spoke to was very polite. Once you step foot in the parking lot, you can already smell the food. The aroma brings back memories of mom's cookings. I walked inside and was greeted by the owner, he was very welcoming and kind. I was given a menu to take with me and the receipt even includes he's personal cell phone number so you can even order your food through text. I personal think that's a great way to get returning customers. Anyways, when I tried the food there were no disappointments. You can tell that the food is made with love, it has that homemade feeling. I ordered white rice, black beans with beef and onions. The beef was so tender, it broke off so easily just with a fork. The white and beans were exceptional as well! This restaurant is the definition of a mom and pop shop, the owner genuinely cares about the food that he is putting out. I will be returning and would recommend everyone to try this restaurant as well.

    It only took me 2 months & two glowing reviews by people I know & trust before venturing into Pollo Rico. Why I waited so long I'll never know. This place is fantastic. Friendly proprietors, excellent food & great service. I had the Cuban with pulled pork. Best I ever had. Can't wait to go back & try to rest of the menu. Breakfast, lunch, light dinner, comfort food.

    Wow, food was amazing and the owner is so accommodating to any special request. Super friendly!!! I had the tacos on one visit and the flavor was great. On my second visit I had the Cuban sandwich and it was HUGE and was the best Cuban I have ever had. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone.
