Regrettable, this is our closest El Pollo Loco and worst-run we’ve EVER encountered. Over-cooked chicken (dry-very dry/not burned) are consistent. Should you visit this unit, be prepared to clean your own table and seats. Asked supervisor when are you going to clean the dining room....More

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
