Tropical Picken Chicken - Wake Forest

  • 2010 S. Main St.
    Ste. 406
    Wake Forest, NC 27587

The restaurant's name refers to it's specialty, a Dominican dish featuring chicken marinated in tropical juices and spices and 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". But the Cuban style slow oven-roasted, 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 Cuban and Dominican cuisines are amply represented by Caribbean Pork Chops, Barbecued Ribs, Steak Encebolldo, Shrimp in Red Sauce, Roasted Garlic Sauce and Pressed Cuban Sandwich.
