For those who are health nuts, El Pollo Loco is the perfect place to dine. Grilled chickens are tasty and healthy!

I usually like El Pollo Loco fast food, but this site has been very disappointing...there are better ones not too far away.

I went to eat at El Pollo Loco with my parents yesterday. My parents recently purchased a fund raising discount coupon book. The book contained 'buy one, get one free' coupons so we decided to go to El Pollo Loco. We showed the cashier the coupon and we placed our orders. We sat down and waited for our number to... More

The best fast food Mexican around. I ordered the poblano chicken burrito and my wife ordered a chicken taco bowl. We love the citrus marinated chicken

I will admit that I'm not a fan of fast food, but the chicken tacos and roasted chicken at El Pollo Loco are pretty good. The chicken they cook up fresh right in front of you ( behind the counter) is very tasty and juicy. Also their fresh salsa are quite good.

Love this place! It's fast food, but it's fresh and can be healthy if you watch what you order. They have a calorie/fat guide you can look at. I always oder a cheicken breast meal with 2 side salads as the sides.

I like El Pollo Loco's chicken. It's very tasty and because they flame broil it, it's much less greasy and fatty than competitors' chicken, like KFC & Church's. I've ordered takeout from the Citrus Heights restaurant many times as well as other "Locos" in Sacramento, Santa Cruz and once in southern Calif. All have been uniformly good and the service...
