If you are used to eating out a lot and eating fast food then pollo loco is for you
Pollo loco chicken is of the lowest quality their chicken is the worst, they use a lot of spices and add tons of salt to cover up the fact that their chicken is low quality.
All their dishes are of low quality that's why they can afford to sell for cheap you get what you pay for. Don't use your stomach as a trash can, you are when you eat at pollo trash loco You want high quality young chickens and all their dishes are of high quality try Boston Market .

If you're not into fried chicken anytime soon, this is a great choice. In general, all El Pollo Loco's are the same in terms of taste. The value's definitely a plus where you get more than just chicken for a few bucks. This particular location gets real busy because it's located right in front of Pasadena City College. It's very hard to find a place to park if you go on peak time, especially at lunch time, parking is shared with 4 other fast food chains.

El Pollo Loco is a a great place to eat if you love grilled chicken. It's better than KFC because the chicken is not fried. The chicken is great and the salsa and beans are always fresh.The tortillas are also great too.You can also take the chicken to a picnic.

I could eat here every day and be happy! The burritos are to die for, they're HUGE and always hot and fresh. A very good price for the size! The sides are so good, I have a hard time deciding what to get...mashed potatos, vegetables, corn, mac and cheese, etc. I also just discovered the nachos, they're sooo tasty. The salsa is great, tangy and not as spicy that you can't enjoy it. It's a serve yourself salsa bar so you can take as much as you want.

I like other things at El Pollo also, but their new Chicken Nachos are great. Just the right amount of beans, cheese, etc. although I wish they'd put the sour cream and guacamole in a plastic cup instead of right on the nachos.
The Chicken Taquitos aren't bad either when you want a change from the standard Chicken Combo meal.

El Pollo Loco is a chicken off the grill that tastes really good with beans, rice, and tortilla.
The salsa is always freshly done and it just has added flavor for your chicken. They do have other salsa's that are spicy and gives the chicken a better flavor.
The service is good too. Just be prepared to eat spicy salsa.
