Last October, we dished that the Essence Festival was going big and going global for …
Things are definitely heating up for the nation’s leading fire-grilled chicken chain El Pollo Loco, as it recently opened its first Dallas location off of Forest Lane on December 27, 2016. Spanning 2,995 square feet and comfortably seating up to 70 guests, this marks the seventh El Pollo Loco location to open in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, and a first for the city of Dallas.
“We are excited to continue expanding in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and offer another conveniently located destination for individuals and families to enjoy our handcrafted dishes,” said Steve Sather, Chief Executive Officer at El Pollo Loco. “Our signature citrus-marinated, fire-grilled chicken is a crowd pleaser and the core of everything we do at El Pollo Loco. We’re truly looking forward to sharing our flavorful chicken meals and other Mexican-inspired entrees with the Dallas community.”
A crowd pleaser is definitely an understatement. Our flavorful #foodie tastebuds went “loco” the first time we sampled the signature chicken dishes — delicately prepared on an open flame by the Mexican-inspired chain’s highly skilled grill masters. Needless to say, El Pollo Loco stands in a lane of its own.
From chicken dinners to burritos to quesadillas and more, the addition of El Pollo Loco to the Dallas fast food/casual dining community is undoubtedly a plus.
While fast food in a fast-paced society is almost a must, we encourage all to pump the brakes and take a peek inside of El Pollo Loco’s new “Vision Design” interior for the newly minted Dallas space. Featuring rustic elements and warm textures, guests are invited to indulge in the open space concept and see first-hand the magic of the citrus-marinated fire-grilled chicken as it cooks within the flames. If seeing, or tasting, is believing, then this is definitely one dining experience that will keep your tastebuds hot.
El Pollo loco is open seven days a week from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. For more information on El Pollo Loco and the rest of its DFW locations, visit www.elpolloloco.com.
