The name “El Pollo Loco” refers to two restaurant chains working in different countries. They share the same roots and historically operated as a single company founded by one and the same person but work independently nowadays.
The El Pollo Loco, Inc. restaurant chain is based in California and has more than 390 locations (mostly in the American Southwest). The El Pollo Loco menu is based on Mexican-style grilled chicken, which was originally the restaurant’s main product. Today, though, the menu also contains quite a few other Mexican-style items, including burritos, tacos, and quesadillas. If you compare El Pollo Loco prices with its three closest rivals, Taco Bell, Del Taco, and Chipotle, you will notice that they are somewhere in between.
The Mexico-based chain has a simpler menu than the US one – it still specializes in the grilled chicken.
