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 4 out of 5 by A little dispointed than usual as the white rice was uncooked in parts and there was a small pebble in the bean that almost broke my husband tooth. Feb 13, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by My menu did not have their updated prices. When I questioned my total, i was shown a different menu with a different price. I Informed them I was only paying the price I had originally seen. After some persistence, i was charged the lower price. Feb 6, 2015
