This place is just across the road from our hotel. We stayed in Chula Vista for 4 nights and ate here twice. Delicious meals.

My biggest beef with Pollo Locos is that they hire "English challenged" (I'm Mexican American so please don't assume) employees who never seem to understand the difference between corn and flower tortillas on the intercom. Here they do. That's the key differentiator. Love it here!

El Pollo Loco is everywhere! The chicken is so moist and juicy and the side orders are delicious! My wife loves the frijoles, and i like the creamy Mac n cheese!

The chicken is great and the condiment and sauce center makes everything extra special. The sides add a nice extra touch.

Well the commercials drive you crazy because the food looks sooooo GOOD! AND IT IS! You feel healthy eating it because it's good for you and the chicken tastes great! Very good Mexican food.

We have been going to this El Pollo Loco for years. We do the drive thru and usually get a large family order so we have lots of left overs. We buy it a lot when we have people from out of town and want a good quick dinner. There has been a recent change in the coleslaw, so it... More
