  • The El Pollo Loco in south St. Louis County has closed.
Following up on a post on the Post Dispatch's "Eat at Joe's" message board, Gut Check can confirm that the only St. Louis area location of the fast-food chain El Pollo Loco (4103 South Lemay Ferry Road, South St. Louis County; 314-892-4600) has closed.

A spokesperson at the chain's corporate headquarters said the restaurant has closed but couldn't provide more specific details except that it was most likely the decision of the franchisee.

I reviewed El Pollo Loco in September 2009. As I wrote then, while fast-food restaurants usually don't fall within the range of my reviews, El Pollo Loco has a unique history: It was founded as a roadside stand in Guasave, Mexico. It is now based in Costa Mesa, California.
