Reviewed 18 August 2012

Love the chicken here. It's fresh and tastes very good. Great menu selection as well and the prices can't be beat.

“Fresh Salsas and Great Chicken”
Reviewed 18 May 2012

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.

“Great flame broiled chicken!”
Reviewed 3 July 2009

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 super fast. The chicken is the "star" in my book, but they also do very good chicken tortilla wraps, various chicken "bowls" and tamales.
