El Pollo Loco

El Pollo Loco 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.

We have eliminated Styrofoam packaging and replaced it with our eco-friendly Thermo-To-Go containers, which are made from partially recycled materials. This change will remove 1.9 million cubic feet of Styrofoam — the equivalent of 21 Olympic-size swimming pools — from the national waste stream annually.

In honor of Black History Month, we commissioned the work of legendary muralist, Enkone, to grace the side of our Crenshaw location. For the month of February, this restaurant will also donate 5% of its sales to the Brotherhood Crusade, a non-profit dedicated to helping youth in that community develop life skills, which lead to job placement.

Products

At El Pollo Loco our food is a reflection of who we are, where we’re from and where we live. The perfect blend of traditional Mexican flavors and new California inspiration. It’s a burrito inspired by a farmers market alongside slow-simmered pinto beans. It’s a paleo-friendly protein plate at the same table as a street taco. And a traditional meal of our famous fire-grilled chicken complemented by a salad with mangoes and fresh avocados. In short, it’s L.A. Mex.

Our Tradition

Sometimes the traditional ways are the best. That’s why even after nearly four decades we continue to marinate whole chickens in our family marinade of citrus, garlic and spices several times a day, every day. That’s why our seasoned Grill Masters still grill them low and slow--the traditional way, for 55 minutes over an open flame. That’s why generations of families gather around our Mexican entrees and family dinners year after year. And that’s why our enduring commitment to the principles of hard work, doing things the right way, and always starting with the best ingredients available will never change.
