There was 6 of us and we were all so hungry. We said let's try that place. It was great to have good food quickly and the price was right. All of us was so full from the food. Great quick meal!

I prpbably eat at or pick-up from this El Pollo once or twice a week. The food is consistant, hot and good. I love the chicken and the pinto beans with coleslaw.

The food was amazing and service was impeccable. Such an amazing place to eat. I love the workers just as much as the food! It is so delicious. Saturday and Sunday nights have the best workers

Ordered a double chicken tostada, tacos and shrimp mango something I remember. The chicken was lacking in flavor, the chicken was dry and looked very unappetizing. Same with the taco and oh yes, the quesadilla. The servers were nice and friendly. I would give 5 stars to them. The place was deserted. So I believe not many people go there.

the chichen is moist and they offer so many options, taco, chicken plates, salads, etc. A healthier option for fast food.

The chickens sold at this restaurant are really small. The portion of the same half chick meal I ordered from Whole Food is a lot more even it cost a little bit more.

I always enjoy eating at this El Pollo Loco because the food is tasty, the staff is always nice, and the price is reasonable (especially if you have a coupon!). I like the fact that the chicken is cooked fresh over a flame and always has a consistently good taste. Enjoy!

Thank Jim S
