Even if there's only 1 car in the drive thru this place is slow slow slow. And there's a 50% chance your order will be wrong OR you get someone else's order. Always check before you pull out.

I love their charbroiled chicken. Salads are all excellent. Dollar menu has a good selection. Dinners are great for hubbie & me. Drive thru is perfect for my "I'm too tired to walk in to Chipotle" afternoons. cGood tastes & healthy food.

Like most El Pollo Locos, this one had good management and training for its employees. It was reasonably clean and organized.

I always like their food. The problems with the one here in Yorba Linda is that they almost never get a drive-up order right. Always something missing. So now I only go if I have time to go in.

I like the fact that they use chicken that is cage free. The taste is great and the garnishings are openly available. Good service too. Chicken bowl is good

Good food but we go there rarely as I feel the content of the food is not enough to satisfy the hunger.

Picked up some food here for dinner. When we went to eat our food we noticed there was half of it missing and we had 8 people to feed. It wasnt like it was just a missing side. At least half the food was missing.
