COSTA MESA, Calif., Jan. 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- El Pollo Loco, Inc. (“El Pollo Loco” or “Company) (Nasdaq: LOCO), the nation’s leading fire-grilled chicken restaurant chain is dishing out their own version of a traditional Sonoran-style burrito with its latest offering, Loco Burrito Grillers. Tightly packed with flavorful chicken or beef protein, grilled to perfection, and served with a brand-new Loco Dipping Sauce, Loco Burrito Grillers sit at the intersection of old and new while offering customers handheld indulgence on-the-go for a satisfying way to kick off 2023.
“This year, El Pollo Loco is reminding our familia of fans that our menu has something for everyone desiring a taste of Mexico wherever they go,” says Chief Marketing Officer Andy Rebhun. “We view food as an opportunity for escapism for the tastebuds and Loco Burrito Grillers are the perfect taste of Sonora to enjoy during a busy commute, between meetings, on your way to your next weekend getaway – anywhere you choose to dig in!”
Sonoran-style flour tortillas are stretched thin and cooked on a griddle to make the traditional Sonoran burrito portable and jam packed with nourishing ingredients. Offered in a specially designed carrier box featuring custom artwork by Raúl Urias, each order contains two Loco Burrito Grillers ready to dip in a Loco Dipping Sauce – a marriage of the fan-favorite birria consommé and warm queso for a truly unique experience with each bite. The lineup of Loco Burrito Grillers includes:
