El Pollo Loco is a good place to get tasty grilled chicken. For people who enjoy eating chicken and Mexican food, this is a restaurant that has several locations in the Salt Lake City and County area.

El Pollo Loco was the dream of a young man in Mexico. Pancho Ochoa had a love for grilled chicken and started selling his Mexican style chicken to the community in 1975.

He used family recipes which had been handed down through generations. He grilled citrus marinated chicken with garlic and spices. Pancho had moved to California. He sold everything to start his first restaurant in his former shoe store. The first El Pollo Loco Restaurant was on Alvarado Street in Los Angeles, California, in 1980. His chicken was an immediate hit and became a local favorite. There are now around 500 of the restaurants.

A message from the El Pollo Loco website states:
We believe that good food feeds more than just our appetites. It nourishes the soul.  Good food brings us together. And connects us to something larger than ourselves.
We believe that sitting down and sharing a meal prepared with time, love, and quality ingredients makes us all feel like family. And when that happens, the world is a better place.
