Famous Fire-Grilled Chicken. Cooked slow. Served fast. And always cut-to-order.
In 1980 the first American El Pollo Loco opened on Alvarado Street in Los Angeles, quickly becoming a destination for the best citrus-marinated, fire-grilled pollo in town. Over the past four decades, El Pollo Loco has grown into more than 480 restaurants across 6 states--becoming an L.A. mainstay and cultural benchmark along the way. And today, we continue to work just as hard to always provide customers with fresh and innovative L.A. Mex--from our famous family dinners to Mexican entrees.
