El Pollo Loco Brings on the Baja with Trio of Shrimp Entrees

El Pollo Loco, the nation’s fire-grilled chicken chain, announced the introduction of three new Baja Shrimp entrees. 

Featured in the Grande Taco, Tostada Salad, and Stuffed Quesadilla, the Baja Shrimp offering will be available at El Pollo Loco restaurants for a limited time.

“Our new Baja Shrimp entrees are a great complement to our signature fire-grilled, citrus-marinated chicken, and further reinforce our [quick-service restaurant]-plus strategy of providing a variety of authentic, handcrafted entrees that meet our guests’ needs for convenience and value,” says Ed Valle, chief marketing officer, El Pollo Loco. 

The Baja Shrimp Grande Taco includes shredded cabbage, creamy cilantro dressing, sliced avocado, and mango salsa served in a warm corn tortilla. 

The Baja Shrimp Tostada Salad features Spanish rice, pinto beans, Romaine lettuce, mango salsa, avocado, cilantro, and lite citrus vinaigrette served in a crispy handcrafted tostada shell. 

The Baja Shrimp Stuffed Quesadilla features Jack cheese, cabbage, tomatillo verde salsa, and avocado wrapped in a warm flour tortilla.

Baja Shrimp entrees are available at all El Pollo Loco restaurants starting at $2.99.


i ordered two of the new baja shrimp quesadilla, first i think its too pricey for $6.49 a piece then there is no shred of cheese at all, which is why i checked your website. They should be careful to make sure that the ingredients complete especially for such a pricey quesadilla, thanks

I am disappointed with my Shrimp & Chicken Bowl. A bowl with only rice (no beans), 4 baby shrimps and a few small ckicken pieces. Not worth $6.79.
