Barbecue Chicken Is Back At El Pollo Loco

BBQ enthusiasts can once again enjoy real barbecue at a quick-serve restaurant with El Pollo Loco's limited time Barbecue Chicken and new BBQ Chicken Slider!

June 01, 2009 // Franchising.com // Costa Mesa, Calif.– Calling all BBQ lovers! Just in time for summer, El Pollo Loco announced today the return of its popular Barbecue Chicken and greets the grilling season with the debut of a new BBQ Chicken Slider.

For years, the nation's flame-grilled chicken leader has delighted fans with distinctive variations of its signature citrus-marinated, flame-grilled chicken. Past favorites include Tequila Lime, Chile Orange, Chile Lime, and Lemon Pepper. The most popular is Barbecue, back in restaurants through July 26, joined by a new taste sensation-- the BBQ Chicken Slider.

El Pollo Loco's Barbecue Chicken starts with fresh, natural chicken flame-grilled to perfection and then covered with rich, smoky sauce with a hint of Chipotle. The result is sensational barbecue flavor people won't find anywhere else.

Available in both individual and family meals, the chain's Barbecue Chicken is perfect for summer get-togethers, paired with a wide assortment of sides plus warm tortillas and fresh salsas. El Pollo Loco's traditional flame-grilled chicken is also available and guests can mix the two varieties, traditional and barbecue, in their order if they choose.

Through July 26, El Pollo Loco is offering a great deal on its delicious flame-grilled chicken, barbecue and traditional. Consumers can purchase eight pieces (legs and thighs) for just $6.99.

"These are challenging times and we want to make it easier for people to enjoy our flame-grilled chicken with great offers and exciting new products," said Karen Eadon, chief marketing officer for El Pollo Loco. "In addition to our bone-in chicken promotion, our new BBQ Chicken Slider is priced at just 99 cents."

El Pollo Loco's new BBQ Chicken Slider adds a poultry twist to the mini burger phenomenon that is sweeping the nation. "It's a snack size sandwich that delivers full size taste," said Eadon. "The new BBQ Chicken Slider features plenty of El Pollo Loco's fresh, natural, citrus-marinated, flame-grilled chicken mixed with spicy barbecue sauce and layered with crisp, cool coleslaw on a grilled mini telera roll."

El Pollo Loco will communicate its limited time Barbecue Chicken and BBQ Chicken Slider to consumers through a multimedia campaign that begins today and includes general market and Spanish-language television spots that will appear in select markets across the country. In addition to television, a mix of point-of-purchase vehicles will be used, including full menu panels, window merchandising and drive-thru communication.
