El Pollo Loco Famous Fire-Grilled Chicken Sign Post
Icon Tile Decoration

Born in Mexico, Raised in L.A.

It started with a mother’s recipe and one man’s desire for a quality chicken dinner after a hard day’s work. Over 40 years later, we still grill our chicken the same way, citrus marinated and grilled low and slow over an open flame. In that time, we’ve fed families, connected cultures and have become a Southern California institution.
