Did you know that "El Pollo Loco" translates to "The Crazy Chicken"? OK, that one you probably did know, so that's why we're here to share some fun facts about the restaurant that are a little less well known!
Their stores got an update in 2012 that made the grill area viewable to guests so they can see their food being cooked. They also put their signature salsa bars close to the front counter.
It used to be the Guinness World Record holder for the title of World's Largest Burrito! In 1995, they created a two ton burrito that measured in at 3,112 feet long. The record has since been overturned, but that's still a pretty big burrito.
They do lots to give back to the community and have two organizations that work on charitable causes - El Pollo Loco Charities and Fire-Grilled Fundraisers.
