Pollo Tropical announced its Texas expansion with the opening of its second Houston-area location in Tomball this October. The restaurant is at 21441 Tomball Parkway. The restaurant's opening celebration kicks off on Oct. 17. In July, Pollo Tropical opened its first Houston-area restaurant in Pearland to rave reviews. It plans to open five more in Texas by the end of 2014, including one more in Houston. As with the Pollo Tropical in Pearland, the Tomball location will be ideally situated in a bustling community that offers a wide variety of dining options--though none like Pollo Tropical. Pollo Tropical's menu is a melting pot of culinary cultures, featuring the distinctive, bold and tangy flavors of the Caribbean. Savory island spices, mixed herbs and citrus are blended into rubs and marinades that enhance the flavors of fresh vegetables, pork, beef and signature chicken dishes. Pollo Tropical's famous Saucing Island brings on the flavor--and a little heat with 10 signature sauces, including Curry Mustard, Guava BBQ, Pineapple Rum, Cilantro Garlic and Spicy Poyo-Poyo. The sauces allow diners to further customize their meals and tempt their taste buds with craveable, zesty, tropical flavors. To complement its menu, Pollo Tropical also offers diners a variety of island-inspired beverages, ranging from a selection of Caribbean beers to coconut water and popular Refrescas in tropical breeze, mango peach and superfruit punch flavors.
