El POLLO LOCO...I WAS ROBBED!!!! – Okay, let me tell the real skinny on this El Pollo Loco Chicken. First, I'm a reasonable person and believe in giving second chances so after the first time i felt i was robbed, i waited aprox. 7 months and tried them again. OMG!!! i took myself and my 7 year old with me. i got him the so-called combo: it was two tortilla's and a drink for $4.99!!! if you wanted chips and cheese sauce were extra. i ordered a burritto combo the pollo asada. it was dry, smaller than a taco bell burrito but my chips were included with my combo for a whooping $6.98!!WTF!!!! yes, i was robbed and still hungry. so since we ate inside we retreated to the value menu and brought 3 taquitos and 2 sides of rice. they were actually pretty good. overall, i spent almost 25.00 for dinner for myself and a 7 year old. i will now appreciate Taco Bell and i will never let El Pollo Loco rob me again. If you chose something go for the value menu, its the best deal going.
Mexican fast-food chain serves up authentic citrus-marinated chicken and a variety of burritos and pollo bowls. – In Short
This restaurant's first roadside chicken stand opened up in Guasave, Mexico in 1975. A family-inspired recipe of chicken marinated in herbs, spices and citrus juices was an overnight success and the Mexican chain opened its first American location in Los Angeles in 1980. Ever since, customers have been devouring the house specialty--zesty flame-grilled chicken served with tortillas and fresh salsa. Other menu options include pollo bowls (rice and chicken), salads and quesadillas.
Outstanding chicken. the best around – This sure beats greasy fried chicken. Its loaded with flavor, juicy on the inside, cripsy skin. I've never had chicken as good.
El Pollo Loco the Worst chicken of all the fast food giants, Churches, Popeye's, Kentucky Fried, Grocery stores, etc... – The 59th Ave & West Bell road Location:
Prices differ from the menu to the cash register.
Food is overpriced in comparison to the quality.
The portions or cuts of chicken were small, especially the thighs.
The meat was dry and chewy which left the bones brittle. A lot of splinters.
This was the worst fast food chicken I ever had.
I am a gourmet cook who can char-broil a better bird without the marinade.
mexican chicken wow – good food, clean restaurant. friendly sevice. great for the kids a little price for what you get. but great tasting chicken
Good food limited value – This is good stuff. The only drawback in my personal estimation is the value vs. food quantity. Seems that some of the menu items are quite limited on chicken, and quite heavy on the filler (beans, rice). Otherwise, the food is great tasting.
