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 I ordered the food to dine in and they served it to me as takeout. The pork was old and fatty. It left a really bad taste in my mouth and that's the second time that I had it. I will say the sweet plantain was but everything else was terrible. I think they must've serve the black beans right out of the can. Oct 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by very good food. excellent service. Oct 2, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Ordered a take out asked for Red Beans with the Rice but when I got home I was given French Fries. I had scanned the bill prior to leaving just in case they messed up and noticed two of the items I had ordered so I stopped. Once I got home and noticed the mistake I regretted I didn't check the entire order before leaving. I was too tired and annoyed to bother to call back and let them know. If you do a take out CHECK YOUR ORDER and not just the bill actually look in the containers!Mofongo was ok I've had better - Rice tasted like it was made from days earlier and re-heated. Little to no flavor. They are not consistent with their food which is what will keep me from coming back anytime soon. Sep 15, 2014

Rated 3 out of 5 by Service was extremely slow. Not just for the food. Getting the check, cashing out, getting a box, drink refills, etc. Sep 7, 2014
