Go there often! Love it! Menu offers food for dieters & veggans. This location changed their crunchy tacos to "deep-fry.;" HUGE MISTAKE! They need to go back to the way they used to serve it. Otherwise, all their food is wonderful!

Delicious food, good prices, great salsa bar. I had a chicken, avocado salad one day and the fire grilled chicken the next; both were excellent. The avocado salsa and the corn are also very good. Can't wait to go back!

We have been here on four separate occasions and food is always good but every time we want to sit at a table it is dirty. This is with 6 people behind the counter and 5 people in the store ordering or eating. The salsa...More

The Pollo Loco chain does not have a presence in Kansas City where I live so when I travel west, I make it a point of having one meal at my FAVORITE fast food establishment. On a recent visit to Phoenix, I asked SIRI to...More
