Reviewed 3 August 2013

excellent value for your $$; grilled chicken with beans and rice on their flour or corn torillas makes a wonderful, inexpensive meal. the salsa bar has many varieties to choose from and for any tastes from mild to hot. staff is helpful and does not rush you out the door...

“I Love El Pollo Loco”
Reviewed 18 May 2013

My favorite Mexican chicken place. I will admit that it's not my wife's favorite place, though, so maybe it's an individual thing.

I like to get the grilled chicken with beans and rice and make my own burritos from the flour tortillas. That's some good eating.

I noticed one of the other reviewers downgraded the place due to a coupon issue. I've noticed that you see this a lot on yelp, urbanspoon, and tripadvisor reviews. I say note any coupon problems, but if we're grading restaurants, let's concentrate on the food.

Not much more you can say. It's fast food Mexican chicken, done as well as anybody can.

“Not your typical fast food place”
Reviewed 20 April 2013

The chicken there is excellent and so are the salads with cilantro dressing. I love that the chicken is grilled and healthy. Lately the service has been a little slow but tolerable. They use to give you free chips and salsa while you were waiting for your food but not any more. I love stopping there when I need to pick up something quick to bring home for dinner.

“El Pollo Loco”
Reviewed 10 January 2013

The food at the one I go to is very consistent and good. The chicken is very good. This is a quick and easy place to pop in to get a good meal at a reasonable price. Much better fast food than the typical fast food restaurants.
