Pollo Tropical Keto Menu

Pollo Tropical is a Caribbean restaurant chain and franchise that has 140 locations in the US and other franchised locations in Puerto Rico and Saint Croix. It is popularly known for its marinated grilled chicken and various sides such as black beans and rice and corn casserole. Although most sides aren't suitable for a low-carb keto diet, eating a keto meal at Pollo Tropical isn't that difficult.

According to the official nutrition menu, there are 30 keto options available at Pollo Tropical with under 20g of net carbs.

The best keto food that you can choose from Pollo Tropical's menu is the 1/4 White Chicken with Poyo Poyo or Cilantro Garlic sauce paired with a cup of noodle soup. This entire meal accounts for only 10g of carbs so you can make more room for other meals.

If you are in the mood for something else we recommend you create your own Tropichop Bowl. Keep in mind that rice and beans are off-limits to keto so you might want to leave them off. Instead, you can opt for keto-friendly options like Romaine lettuce with 1 total carbohydrate, Pulled Pork, regular with 1 total carbohydrate, and Kernel corn with 5 total carbohydrates.

For a low-carb side, the Caesar Salad, Regular with 6 total carbohydrates is a good choice for you. If you have the carbs to spare and want a more filling side, you can select the Mac & Cheese, Platter with 15 total carbohydrates.
