The restaurant is open-air, under a really big palm roofed palapa! This adds a nice exotic, tropical touch. Deep shade and lots of fans keep the palace cool in summer. Long dining tables emphasize the fact that this is family get-together food, and you will often find the place quite busy. Moreover, most of their business is take out. Call ahead to order, it would make great road trip or beachside food!
This chicken has that south of Mexico flavor. The big, open grill lets the restaurant cook lots of chicken at once, helping to keep up with orders. It also serves as the best advertising possible, as the scent of the marinated, slightly charred chicken carries throughout the neighborhood. Salty and citrusy, this finger food makes you want to eat more and more.
Something as basic as rice can be forgettable. Pollo Lucas adds just a touch of tomato sauce and spices to make the perfect Spanish rice, a traditional Mexican favorite. Moreover, nothing taste better than some rice on one of Lucas’ home made flour tortillas, covered with shredded chicken fresh from your plate. Toss on a little spicy tomato salsa and course green cabbage. Oh, and don’t forget the Coca Cola as well!
