Tropical Picken Chicken was established on the premise of providing our clients with a unique Latin (Cuban, Puerto Rican & Dominican) Cuisine. Our dishes are all authentic home style cooking from various latin countries. Our goal is to bring you back to the way home cooking use to be with recipes passed down from our grand parents, parents & family. We are cooking exactly what you would find in our home countries. The restaurant's name refers to its specialty, a Dominican dish featuring chicken marinated in tropical juices with garlic citrus mojo sauce & Latin flavorful spices grilled over an open flame. The Spanish name of the dish is Pica Pollo, which translates loosely to "Pickin (or even more loosely, Picken) chicken". However, our Cuban style slow oven-roast, Roast Pork B.B.Q. with garlic citrus mojo sauce, topped with onions is equally popular. The menu is as compact as the cheerfully casual dining room, but our latin cuisine are amply represented by Caribbean Pork Chops, Barbecued Ribs, Steak Encebolldo, Shrimp in Red Sauce, Roasted Garlic Sauce and Pressed Cuban Sandwich. The cheery, family-friendly eatery also offers a kids's menu as well as family-style meals that serve three or four from $15-$20, including sides. We provide the most dependable and experienced staff ready to deliver exquisite home style cooking from our Latin traditions & heritage. We bring "Classic Tropical Food with the Rhythm of the Caribbean"!

Rated 1 out of 5 by The chicken was awesome! Steak was flavorless and the "sauteed onions were RAW. Rice had undercooked grains and the beans were not good. We ordered tostones and requested garlic sauce....and never got it until we were finished eating the tostones. We were charged for a drink we didn't order and were charged gratuity we shouldn't have been. They were kind enough to recook the onions, took off the extra drink charge and took 10% off. Not the best experience (I've eaten here before and it was GREAT) but I appreciate them trying to make it right. Nov 2, 2015

Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good food. However, the dining area was a little small. That could have been because it was a very busy time...lunchtime on Sunday. Aug 10, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by The food was excellent, but the lady manager was quite rude - interrupted the cashier helping me to assist another customer. Then she came and swept under my chair and table area while we were eating!!!! Not good:( Aug 5, 2015
