The first St. Louis location of El Pollo Loco will open Monday, May 18, at 4103 Lemay Ferry Road. From the press release:
Founded in Guasave, Mexico, in 1975, El Pollo Loco, pronounced "L Po-yo Lo-co" and Spanish for "The Crazy Chicken," opened its first U.S. restaurant in 1980 and is famous for the unique preparation of its award-winning "pollo"-- fresh chicken marinated in a special recipe of herbs, spices and citrus juices passed down from the founding family. The marinated chicken is then flame-grilled, hand cut and served hot off the grill with warm tortillas, freshly prepared salsas, and a wide assortment of side dishes.
El Pollo Loco now has 418 restaurants in 14 states. The Lemay Ferry Road location -- the first in Missouri as well as St. Louis -- is the first of six planned for St. Louis County. El Pollo Loco will be open 10 a.m.-midnight Sun.-Thu. and 10 a.m.-2 a.m. Fri.-Sat.
