A (very) Fresh take on tradition

What is L.A. Mex? It’s SoCal lifestyle meets Mexican heritage. It’s better-for-you choices like fire-grilled chicken and tradition-inspired temptations like Overstuffed Quesadillas. It’s burritos, taquitos and tacos with a fresh California Twist. It’s a menu that can meet any dietary need from paleo to vegetarian to straight out craving. Simply said, it’s L.A. active, it’s Mexican proud and it’s exactly what you’ll find at El Pollo Loco.

El Pollo Loco's Loco Salad

Our Pollo

The traditional ways are still the best. That’s why we always marinate fresh, never frozen chicken every day in our family recipe of citrus, garlic, and spice. Grill it low and slow for 55 minutes over an open flame. And make it cut-to-order for every one of our family dinners, tacos, burritos, bowls and salads.

Our Food

Steeped in tradition. Filled with freshness. Our menu is the intersection of our Sinaloan roots and our SoCal hometown.
