While some things have changed over the last few decades, El Pollo Loco’s delivery of fresh, authentic food has not. Everything 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 to perfection the authentic way – on our signature open-flame grills – then hand cut into your favorite Mexican entrees. We put that same dedication and care into our handmade guacamole, salsas and dressings every day. At El Pollo Loco in Mira Mesa,CA, we believe that when real food meets real fire the result is great taste that will keep you coming back again and again.
Fast-food chain outpost known for Mexican classics made with fire-grilled chicken.
The food was pretty good. Friendly staff and quick service.
Easy to find. Order from the app and it was ready really quick. Double chicken mango bowl was a little dry. I still like their grilled chicken.
This is one of my go to lunch spots during the work week. The food is always fresh and the staff is always really friendly. I recently bumped into someone who used to work there and I asked them how clean the kitchen really is and they said it’s actually very clean so I was happy to hear that!
