Family owned-and-operated, El Pollo Grill first opened its doors in 1987 when founders Rafael and Constanza Lopez assumed control of a small existing restaurant in Lemon Grove called Pollo Charro. In addition to serving their signature marinated and flame broiled chicken (prepared “The Lopez Family Way”), the couple reshaped the menu to incorporate recipes that had been in their families for generations. El Pollo Grill quickly found great success as both a restaurant and food catering company, eventually opening up two more locations.

El Pollo Grill provides a variety of dishes lovingly prepared in the kitchen and served for dine-in customers as well as takeout and delivery orders. In addition to classics such as tacos, burritos, and quesadillas, they also have flame broiled chicken meals for individuals and families along with wildly popular weekly specials. El Pollo Grill is also the home of the 619 Cali Quake Burrito Challenge and the #TatisTacos giveaway during the MLB season.

Food catering is another vital part of what El Pollo Grill offers, with individuals and businesses across the San Diego region relying on them to prepare dishes for events and other gatherings. Thinking “outside the tortilla” and wanting to meet the needs of as many patrons as possible, El Pollo Grill’s catering menu goes beyond Mexican cuisine to include BBQ, Italian, fresh fish of the day, and even breakfast options.

As their website indicates, El Pollo Grill cares deeply about giving back as much as possible to the incredible communities it serves. They recognize how much San Diego has given to their family over the years, and in turn are proud to frequently participate in fundraising efforts with local youth sports organizations, schools, non-profit organizations, and more. Those with fundraising ideas looking for support can contact El Pollo Grill by phone or online. The company also gives out complimentary meals to those in need via nominations through social media.

This year El Pollo Grill is excited to continue serving its cherished family recipes to long-time customers and new patrons alike. While it has been close to 35 years since Rafael and Constanza Lopez began their restaurant & catering adventure, the team remains fully committed to crafting top-quality dishes made from the freshest and most flavorful ingredients available. For those in Lemon Grove, Chula Vista, and across San Diego, there is truly no better spot for Mexican food year round.
