We tried their Chicken Tenders Meal. Their chicken tenders are tasty, moist and tender with a light crispy breading. The portion size was ample. Their chicken is not dry and excessively salty like KFC. Staff is friendly and service is fast. Don't forget to ask for their senior discount. Their Senior Discount is !0%. The only downside is how the... More

We go here for take out fairly regularly, maybe once every two or three weeks. While the food is always good, they have yet to prepare the order correctly. Three times we have driven back to have an order corrected.

I don't think I have ever had a bad experience at El Pollo Loco. If you are looking for great food at a good price, look no further! Their tortillas are my favorite!

When we are doing fast food, this is my favorite place to go. Food is fresh and it's good. The restaurant is always clean and the staff is friendly. The restaurant has seating but I generally pick up to go. Their menu has expanded a little bit and their Family Pack is very affordable.

El Pollo Loco has the healthiest fast food. They do not use a lot of additives, and you watch them cook the chicken. The place is clean, service is prompt and friendly. Love their burritos and salads.
