El Pollo Loco

Restaurant Details

El Pollo Loco specializes in pollo asado, or Mexican-style flame-grilled chicken, which means birds are marinated in citrus, spices, and garlic before being grilled whole over an open flame until the skin is crisp and smoky. Family meals or individual combos are accompanied by warm tortillas and fresh sides like pinto beans, rice, and grilled corn; there are also burritos and tacos for hungry St. Louis diners in need of a one-handed meal. Those dining in can take advantage of an impressive self-serve salsa bar with sauces from mild to spicy, plus fresh cilantro and lemon wedges. "The Crazy Chicken" is headquartered in Costa Mesa, California, and has spread its wings to 450 locations throughout California and the southwestern U.S. Finding El Pollo Loco is a cinch on Voice Places.
