Good fast food.

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.

we have always liked the chicken meals but really enjoyed the shrimp salad. The chicken remains excellent and the increased side items are great. Service was good, staff friendly and the facility very clean. Add reasonable prices and you have a winner.

Simple menu - it is chicken, unsurprisingly! Mexican Cobb Salad was good, Burrito was a bit wet but with decent spice. Chicken meals were ok. Staff very pleasant and service good.

And even though is fast food, there are always options that are healthy oriented. We dont have it on the East coast and my kids always want to come here when we are in the West

I like the combo chicken meal, tortilla bowl, Spanish rice, steamed veggies, flour tortillas. Good salsa bar and great prices, especially with a coupon. Still the best chicken around.

No one at counter spoke English. Chicken was just so-so. Not going back! Used to eat it regularly when we lived in Orange County--One in Paso is nothing like it......UGH!
