“Dry chicken”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

We tried it once, and the chicken was dry and chewy. Don't want to be unfair, maybe we caught them on a bad day.

“Don't see the point”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

I'd never eaten at an El Pollo Loco so thought I'd give it a try. The chicken was extremely bland and of low quality. I am truly baffled as to the popularity of the restaurant chain.

“The chicken could be better”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

I have eaten at many different El Pollo Loco's through out the years, but it had been 7 years since I have eaten at one, being on the east coast where they don't have them. After seeing the sign for this restaurant, I was excited about having this type of cooked chicken again. Unfortunately the food was dry, and had no flavor to speak of. Not sure if I got there on a bad day, but still the food should be consistant. Maybe this place has lost its original flavor and style and needs to be looked at closely by those who manage it. It is no different than anyother fast food chicken place except maybe a little bit more costly. If you want mexican style chicken I would suggest going some place else in this city.
