While El Pollo Loco is new to the Houston area, we have been a long-time favorite in the west. As El Pollo Loco, pronounced “L Po-yo Lo-co” and Spanish for “The Crazy Chicken,” we’re known for our signature citrus-marinated, fire-grilled chicken. We go to crazy lengths to serve our customers the best, most flavorful chicken. First, we marinate fresh, whole chickens in a special recipe of herbs, spices, fruit juices and garlic. We then fire-grill, hand-cut, and serve with our chicken meals, burritos, salads, bowls, soups, tacos and quesadillas. And if that’s not enough, we apply that same passion to our handmade guacamole, salsas and dressings every day.
We’re thrilled to continue to grow in Texas and become part of the Houston community. Its our hope that you will love our chicken as much as we do.
It's not every day that you get flame-grilled deliciousness delivered straight to your email inbox. But it's frequent enough to keep your cravings satisfied.
