Pollo Tropical

I got the quarter chicken platter with yellow rice and beans on Sunday at 1pm when it was really busy. Immediately after consuming it and then working out, I began to feel pain all over my body. At first I thought I might be getting sick, so... See More when I got home I went straight to bed. I began shivering uncontrollably and developed a fever of 102. I then experienced severe abdominal pain, chills, lethargy, loss of appetite, and diarrhea. It's now Tuesday at 10pm and I am still experiencing these symptoms. I have barely been able to eat anything since that platter on Sunday night. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Fever, Chills, Loss of Appetite, Stomach Pain, Body Ache See Less

You need to report it to your county office of business Licensing for restaurants so they can document it

I had ordered a pork and steak tropichop and later that evening had severe diarrhea and vomiting that persisted for days. I had to go to the hospital for dehydration, malaise and severe pain. It is not the first time I have had food poisoning from this location before. Definitely not going back. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Dehydration, Stomach Pain See Less

Ate Cuban sandwich and 30 minutes later had severe vomiting, diarrhea and dehydration.
These symptoms are food poisoning related to a preformed toxin in the sandwich which I took a few bites of.
Saved the evidence in the event of continued symptoms or complications.
