Of all the flightless birds, chickens remain America’s favorite kind to eat, narrowly beating out penguins, kiwis, and Larry Bird. Make bird the word with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $14 worth of Cuban flared fare at Tropical Chicken Grill on Pelham Road.
At Tropical Chicken Grill, grilled meats rest regally as the dominant portion of most plates. Devoid of hormones and antibiotics, Tropical Chicken's all-natural chicken provides a healthier, alternative fuel source for digestive engines running on unleaded fast food. The Deluxe Classic Chop's marvelous mound of lettuce, tomatoes, and rice arrives topped with chopped chicken breast drizzled with one of their signature sauces ($5.79/$7.99). Or dine outside fowl territory with 12-hour marinated slow roasted pork or meatless menu items like the Classic Caesar salad ($4.99). Feel free to wrap your lunch up in an edible tortilla carrying case with a wrap ($4.99-$5.49) or gobble grilled chickens by the quarter or half ($3.99-$7.99).
Owner Lazaro Montoto maintains a healthy diet, and doesn't believe in sacrificing flavor to do so. That's why he opened Tropical Grille as an alternative to the nation’s preponderance of greasy fast-food dives. Natural light pours from wall-length windows onto his steaming grill, where the smell of sizzling chicken and steamed veggies mingle with the aromatic release of Lazaro's flavor-packed spice rubs. He puts those blends to good use; in addition to spicing up the grill, they also infuse his signature pork, which marinates for 12 hours before taking a trip to the slow-roaster for inclusion in thick sandwiches and hearty wraps.
