A fun restaurant

Food is good here, I personally prefer lomo saltado. I love that they also give soups with the food. I like karaoke Tuesday, they're fun

I have been to many of the El Pollos and for many years. My favourite is Torrance but as this branch is closer to our hotel when we are in LA we ended up at this branch again. Not always a choice of which night as it has to fit in with the late nights work schedule and the limited... More

Love the food. Love the prices. Love the value. We must be lucky because we always get great customer service. The value is excellent try the lunch specials that start at $7.99

I was in the area working and wanted to grab a bite to eat before heading to LAX. I specifically asked the gentleman could the dish be made without a particular ingredient, he said yes. Well guess what, the plate came out with the food item I asked to be left off. Due to my time restraints and the ever... More

Went to a memorial service luncheon here. Met with management who made sure the service was top rated. The portions were plentiful. I ate chicken, rice and a salad. Found out they teach salsa on the weekends. This is recommended.

I visited El Pollo Inka with some business associates for dinner--the offerings were many and those selected were delicious, with large portions and very inexpensive in cost. This is my second visit---still very impressed! One associate had a seafood dish; I don't remember the name, but, it included a wide variety of seafood--he admitted that is was one of the... More

I had heard good things about this place before and was really enjoying my food.... And then my friend found not 1 but 2 hairs in her soup. Yuck! If that hadn't happened, they would have gotten a great rating. The food was good and the prices are very affordable. Not to say that stuff like that happens all the... More

There are two Peruvian restaurants that are near my company, already tried El Rocoto so my friends and I decided to come to the legendary El pollo Inka. The interior design was quite unique aztecan style with a touch of modern club lights, by these I meant that there were a lot of black neon lights. I decided to order... More
