New El Pollo Loco Opens In Oceanside! #SoCal

New El Pollo Loco in Oceanside CA

As an Oceanside, CA native, I’m up for promoting local businesses. A new El Pollo Local has just opened up in Oceanside! Yum.

This is the twenty-third El Pollo Loco to be owned and operated by Peg/Lion, LLC; the second largest franchisee in the El Pollo Loco system. Peg/Lion, LLC, is headquartered in Oceanside.

At 2,650 square feet, this restaurant employs approximately 35 new hires from the local community and is open seven days a week. Dine-in service is from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and drive-thru service is extended until 11:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

“It’s an honor to open our newest restaurant in Oceanside and we look forward to providing our guests with an exceptional dining experience each and every time they walk through our doors,” said Angel Lara, vice president of operations, Peg Lion, LLC. “We are eager to continue serving the residents of Oceanside through philanthropic efforts that contribute to our community in meaningful ways.”

Through El Pollo Loco Charities and Peg Lion, the restaurant gives back to the communities in which it does business in a number of ways including volunteering in local neighborhoods, hosting fire-grilled fundraisers in which a portion of the restaurant proceeds benefit a local organization, or sponsoring organizations in need.

I pass this location, 3500 College Blvd. right next to the 78, every day to and from work, so I’ve been able to watch this new building go up. I do like El Pollo Loco’s grilled chicken dinners but never get off my butt to go to the one in Carlsbad or in downtown Oceanside. There’s no excuse now.

I drove in last night and tried their Signature Summer Burrito. The one I had was a fajita burrito that was supposed to have avocado on it, which they gladly took off for me. It was very tasty, and big enough for two people. This may be a dangerous situation for me when I’m headed home.
