While some things have changed over the last few decades, El Pollo Loco's commitment to fresh, authentic food has not. We are passionate about hand-made food and go to obsessive lengths to prepare and serve our signature citrus-marinated, fire-grilled chicken. It starts with whole chickens that are slowly marinated in a special recipe of herbs, spices, fruit juices and garlic. The chicken is then expertly fire-grilled for about an hour, hand-cut and served hot and fresh with our chicken meals, burritos, salads, original Pollo Bowl®, tacos and quesadillas. We put that same dedication and care into our salsas, guacamole and dressings every day. Hand-prepared fresh daily. Some say the lengths we go to are crazy. We say it's Crazy You Can Taste.
