The VERY BEST EVER!! The manager, Lajauni, and Jorge who grills the chicken are so understanding about Celiac! You just ask for manager and request to get rice/beans and chicken that are gluten free!

People working there had very little knowledge of what gluten free meant. Other then that food was very good! I got grilled chicken with white rice. They also changed their gloves before dishing my food.

I actually go to the store on University Drive and Broward Boulevard. The staff is very friendly. I get the sweet plantains and the chicken tropichop. They are always delicious.

We ate here multiple times during a recent visit to south Florida and it was great! My son is celiac and had no issues.

The employees had no knowledge of what gluten free is. The manager said he is celiac and said the only guaranteed gluten free item on the menu is the chicken. I ordered the chicken and double order of white rice, and they put a roll on the plate. Attempting to make it gluten free, they used the same tongs for the chicken as they did for the rolls. They were very friendly and tried to correct the situation, but didn't understand gluten free and cross contamination. The Sprite was great though! 😁

Tropichop bowls (rice bowl) are gluten free. Eat this with grilled chicken very frequently & have never been glutened. Also this is very reasonably priced.

I get the Tropichop from here but there aren’t that many items that contain wheat so I feel like if you’re gluten sensitive/intolerant like me, you’ll do fine. If you’re Celiac, I would be a lot more careful since it’s not a dedicated GF menu/facility.

The Pollo Tropical chain doesn’t seem to be very knowledgeable about gluten free, but many of their items are naturally GF.

I’ve eaten at various locations in south Florida and have never gotten sick. I looked at their allergen menu beforehand online which is helpful and always order the tropichop bowl with chicken, beans, corn, avocado, and guava BBQ sauce. Their flan is GF too! The yuca bites don’t technically have gluten either but I think it’s a shared fryer.

Eat at your own risk, but in an area that unfortunately doesn’t have many GF options, PTrop has been a reliable spot for me to grab a quick bite.

This place is great just look up online what you can get. I do the tropichop with grilled chicken and pork, guava bbq. I think the only sauce with gluten is the curry mustard. Plantains are gluten free too
