“Good food, Great price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

El Pollo Loco has excellent rotisserie chicken, tacos, salads, charo beans and the best guacamole sauce for taquitos. Reasonably priced, convenient and quick.

“Best Rotisserie Chicken”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Consistently good. They have the best rotisserie chicken ever. Very healthy eating. Their salad with the cilantro dressing is very good and reasonably priced.

“Hit and Miss”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

I have always enjoyed EPL's chicken meals and pico de gallo, but the franchise here in Carson City sometimes strikes out. It may be that the chain is trying too hard to be "new and different", when they should stick to old stand-bys, but I think also that indifference among the young staff is part of the reason. Sometimes the food is top notch, other times barely edible. The latest "Puffy Taco" offering is a real bomb. It is impossible to eat out of hand, and really difficult even with a knife and fork. "Just sayin'".

“Great for allergies”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

Our local El Pollo Loco is awesome in helping with allergies. They do not have a menu. It is advised to research on the web first, but when you know what you want, they are more than happy to help you.
