About El Pollo Loco

El Pollo Loco is a differentiated and growing restaurant concept that specializes in fire-grilling citrus-marinated chicken in front of customers. The company's distinctive menu features our signature product-citrus-marinated fire-grilled chicken-and a variety of Mexican-inspired entrees that we create from our chicken. Every day in every restaurant's kitchen the company marinates and fire-grills its chicken over open flames, hand-slice whole tomatoes, avocados, serrano peppers and cilantro to make our salsas, guacamole and cilantro dressings from scratch. The open design of its kitchens reveals our Mexican-inspired cooking process and allows customers to watch Grill Masters and team members fire-grill and hand-cut its signature chicken, as well as make burritos, salads, tostadas, bowls, stuffed quesadillas and chicken entrees.
