Decent food, usually a little better than Taco Bell, lots of different choices on the menu. Prices are similar to most fast food joints. The chicken bowls are probably my favorite thing here, burritos are also pretty good. Worth checking out if your looking for a change up from the regular fast food choices.

Whenever I get the chance I have to satisfy my craving since there isn't one where I live. Love the Chicken Tortilla Soup but just the regular pieces if chicken are my favorite.

What can you say bad about zesty broiled chicken breast with rice and beans. Yum! My favorite condiment is the green avocado/tomatillo sauce for dipping chicken or chips. This place must be popular because it was quite crowded at 2PM. Service was fast. I feel they are a bit pricey but hey I was on vaca..

We were looking for a place to grab a bite while waiting to check into the hotel. We found El Pollo Loco. I had seen several of these around so I wanted to try it out. I had the 1/2 chicken. The pricing was reasonable and the chicken was very good. I had cole slaw which was fine, but nothing... More

The service was slow, the food tasted stale and did not have the quality of food at the El Pollo Loco we typically go to.

My family and I were in Big Bear Lake this past week. It was a great vacation. We ate at El Pollo Loco for lunch one day. We thought that the food was excellent. It is a fast food restaurant, but without the fat. Quick and cheap was just what we needed during out trip. Thanks.
