El Pollo Loco fires up Denton grill

El Pollo Loco has opened its first Denton restaurant.

El Pollo Loco has opened a Denton store at 2822 W. University Drive, becoming North Texas’ fourth outpost of the California-based grilled chicken chain.

“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 CEO Steve Sather, commenting in a news release.

The 2,995-square-foot restaurant opened on Monday and has seating for 70 guests. It features the company’s new ‘Vision Design,’ which highlights what it touts as an authentic, Mexican-inspired atmosphere with El Pollo Loco’s menu and brand identity.

The restaurant is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.
