El Pollo Loco has launched a limited-time offer of three new combination plates and has reprised the promotion of a free bundt cake with the purchase of a family meal.
The Costa Mesa, Calif.-based grilled chicken chain debuted a Carne Asada Plate, featuring the marinated grilled steak with Spanish rice, pinto beans, warm tortillas and salsa for a recommended $6.99. A Mixed Grill plate features both steak and chicken with the same sides for a recommended $6.49.
A third combination plate features the chain’s seasonal offering of chicken tamales with Colorado sauce, which is also served with Spanish rice, beans, tortillas and salsa, for a recommended $5.99.
The chain has also brought back its free bundt cakes in a promotion that company officials said was very successful last year. Guests who order an El Pollo Loco Flame-Grilled Feast — available with nine pieces of chicken or 14 pieces, along with sides, tortillas and salsa — also will receive a free 16-ounce bundt cake.
Flavors include Chocolate Fudge with chocolate icing, or Dulce de Leche with caramel icing.
An individual-sized version of the Chocolate Fudge cake also is available for $1 with purchase.
“These are challenging times and families deserve meals that offer both value and great taste,” said Mark Hardison, El Pollo Loco’s vice president of marketing. “Our Flame-Grilled Feast offers fresh, delicious food people can feel good serving their families, and because it offers a sweet reward, there’s no need for families watching their budget to sacrifice dessert.”
El Pollo Loco operates or franchises more than 400 locations in 13 states.
