El Pollo Loco: "Chicken & Salsa" Los Angeles Restaurant Tip by heryanta

Los Angeles Restaurants: 917 reviews and 1,036 photos


Continuing my tips on Californian fast food joints ... Americans may pass along as this tip is probably more for our friends from abroad :)

If you read my other tips you will know that I love chicken :) Therefore I like El Pollo Loco.

It is a chain of fast food restaurants offering flame grilled rotisserie chicken in Mexican style meal. You can have it with tortilla, or in a burrito, or taco's. I believe the grilled chicken probably is the best choice you can go with.

They also have a salsa bar that I like a lot. Next to the regular and spicy salsa you can have pico de gallo, avocado based sauce and jalapeno's.

Selection of sides include: rice, black beans, pinto beans, coleslaw and Mac 'n cheese.
