We had a two piece chicken dinner & two tacos to share between the two of us. We were impressed with the portions & taste! The atmosphere was good and really happy with meal. The only issue we had was waiting for our refill of soda since had to take to counter that was busy. Again, we thought great place... More

I love chicken, and I am very picky when it comes down to where I eat it. Found this Juan pollo near my house, and I have to say for what I paid, I sure for my moneys worth. I love the flange broil they got going on, and the staff was very friendly, so if you are bar by... More

I went in after work for a quick dinner pick up and I noticed everyone wears whatever they want, you cant tell who works there and who is a customer. Perhaps if the employees wear a uniform or even a Juan Pollo shirt it would look better. The cashier was busy taking orders and bagging them as well which could... More

Had this lunch brought in while travelling on business. I had the chicken which was phenomonal. My co-workers also had the rice, beans, pico, salsa and POTATO SALAD! I'm not a fan of potato salad but I've never heard so many people rave about this as I did yesterday. They were still talking about it that night.

The chicken here is legendary. They have the best chicken skin ever, super good flavoring. Their rice is cooked in chicken broth, so it's very flavorful as well. The potato salad is also very flavorful and goes by very quickly in our family.The beans are just okay, but better than some other places for sure. You shouldn't really eat in... More

Won't buy anything from this restaurant because I nearly died from eating their rotten food. I believe they sold me rotten potatoe salad that made me sick. They are gross. They are gross. I can't believe they took my money for rotten food. Who are the watch dog to protect innocent people. When you go to a restaurant to buy... More

Their food does not have a lot of flavor, rather bland.When I think of Mexican food, I think of flavorful and a bit spicy, their food just does not have the flavor I look for.

Juan Pollo (who appears to be asian from the photos) owns a chain of chicken fast-food restaurants in the San Bernardino area. The food is very similar to El Pollo Loco, even down to the portion sizes, sides, etc. However it's quite a bit cheaper especially the lunch specials. If you like El Pollo, you'll like this too.
