San Diego’s El Pollo Grill is THE local Mexican foodie spot for 2022


With authentic Mexican dishes, exceptional service and a tradition of community support, El Pollo Grill has become one of the best Mexican restaurants in the greater San Diego area for 2022 and beyond.

CHULA VISTA, Calif. /California Newswire/ – The team at El Pollo Grill knows that a new year brings new opportunities for customers to experience wonderful culinary adventures at their 3 dining locations (Lemon Grove, Otay Ranch and Bonita Rd . in Chula Vista). Although the focus is on the future, El Pollo Grill has a rich history that continues to shape the business.

Family owned and operated, El Pollo Grill opened in 1987 when founders Rafael and Constanza Lopez took over an existing small restaurant in Lemon Grove called Pollo Charro. In addition to serving their marinated, flame-grilled chicken (prepared “The Lopez Family Way”), the couple remodeled the menu to incorporate recipes that had been in their families for generations. El Pollo Grill quickly became very successful as a restaurant and catering business, eventually opening two more locations.

El Pollo Grill offers a variety of dishes lovingly prepared in the kitchen and served to restaurant guests as well as take-out and delivery orders. In addition to classics such as tacos, burritos and quesadillas, they also offer flame-grilled chicken dishes for individuals and families, as well as popular weekly specials. El Pollo Grill also hosts the 619 Cali Quake Burrito Challenge and #TatisTacos giveaway during MLB season.

Catering is another essential part of what El Pollo Grill offers, with individuals and businesses in the San Diego area relying on them to prepare food for events and other gatherings. Thinking “outside the tortilla” and wanting to meet the needs of as many customers as possible, El Pollo Grill’s dining menu goes beyond Mexican cuisine to include barbecue, Italian, fresh fish of the day and even breakfast options.

As its website indicates, El Pollo Grill cares deeply about giving back as much as possible to the amazing communities it serves. They recognize all that San Diego has given their family over the years and are proud to frequently participate in fundraising efforts with local youth sports organizations, schools, nonprofits, and more. Those with fundraising ideas looking for support can contact El Pollo Grill by phone or online. The company also distributes free meals to those in need through nominations through social media.

This year, El Pollo Grill is excited to continue serving its cherished family recipes to long-time customers and new customers. While it’s been nearly 35 years since Rafael and Constanza Lopez began their food and beverage adventure, the team remains fully committed to crafting top quality dishes using the freshest, tastiest ingredients available. For those in Lemon Grove, Chula Vista, and San Diego, there really isn’t a better place for Mexican food year-round.
