We’re excited to be partnering with Pollo Tropical for “Meet us at the Market” – a DFW Moms Night Out event! We know not everyone can make the event so we wanted to share our sponsor’s info with you about this new food spot in DFW!
On Wednesday, September 16, 2015 over 75 moms will have the opportunity to munch on delicious and healthy samples from Dallas’s newest restaurant Pollo Tropical at DFW Moms Night Out! If you haven’t yet discovered this Miami-based restaurant popping up around the Dallas Metroplex, it’s definitely one we think you should add to your list of “go to” options for your family.
Most known for its signature citrus-marinated, flame-grilled chicken, Pollo Tropical (pronounced PO-YO Tropical) was founded in 1988 in Miami and has a rich history rooted in serving fresh, handcrafted food with the distinct flavors of the Caribbean at affordable prices.
Its menu is based on the Caribbean islands’ melting pot of culinary culture featuring bold, tangy and distinct flavors using savory spices, mixed herbs and citrus. These are blended into rubs and marinades that enhance the flavors of fresh vegetables and meats such as pork and Pollo’s signature chicken dishes.
Pollo Tropical has built its loyal following on its famous fresh, never frozen, grilled bone-in chicken marinated in a proprietary blend of tropical fruit juices and spices, then flame-grilled to perfection.
In addition to its signature bone-in chicken, Pollo Tropical’s extensive menu offers boneless, skinless grilled chicken breast, Mojo Roast Pork, Caribbean Ribs, Grilled Pork Loin, and Grilled Tropical Wings along with made-from-scratch sides including rice, beans, yuca with garlic sauce, sweet plantains and more.
Additional menu options include:
- Tropical Starters :: Cheezy Yuca Bites, Fried Yuca, or Sweet Plantains
- Sandwiches & Wraps :: Chicken Avocado Club Wrap, Chicken Caesar Wrap, Calypso Beef Wrap, Chipotle Chicken Sandwich, Guava BBQ Pork Sandwich, and more!
- Salads & Soups :: Chicken Avocado Club Salad, Chicken Quesadilla Salad, Caribbean Chicken Soup
Pollo Tropical is also famous for its Create Your Own TropiChops®, made with tender grilled chicken breast or Mojo Roast Pork (or meatless for a tasty vegetarian option), topped with a choice of white rice, brown rice or yellow rice, vegetables and choice of sauces.
With a variety of platters, value meals, combos, sandwiches, salads, wraps, kids meals and family meals, Pollo Tropical’s full-flavored offerings have always been a healthy alternative to typical fast food. Their menu includes 5 meals for under 510 calories which includes some of their signature platters, salads, and wraps served “lite” for a healthier option. The restaurant also uses ingredients that have zero added trans fats or hormones.
Pollo Tropical’s famous “Saucing Island” brings on the flavor – and a little heat – with 10 signature sauces, including Curry Mustard, Guava BBQ, Pineapple Rum and Cilantro Garlic. If you’re dining inside or grabbing food to-go, their sauces allow you to further customize their meals and tempt your taste buds with craveable, zesty, tropical flavors.
Did we mention Pollo Tropical has an extremely convenient online ordering system AND a drive thru?!
If you’re driving around the Dallas Metroplex, make sure to stop in at one of their 9 locations in Addison, Plano, Dallas, Frisco, Allen, Denton, and Hurst. And coming soon to Lewisville in mid-September!
