As El Pollo Loco expands across the Houston area, I’ve been given the chance to partner with them, and it’s been so fun visiting the new stores, and sharing my experiences with you.
Since Valentine’s day is coming up, we went for desserts and they did not disappoint. I took my friends from Jornie.com and all our kids had a blast chowing down on lunch so they could try churros for the first time.
While we did end up divvying up some Ah-may-zing churros between the little ones, I snuck in a few bites too. I don’t understand how something can be soft and crunchy at the same time, but these were and oh so sweet. I could have kept eating them if the littles weren’t so excited for their bites!
They come in sets of two, which I thought was super convenient for sharing with the kiddos. I don’t want them to have huge desserts, but they can feel special, each getting one, without overloading on sugar.
I realized that El Pollo Loco would make the perfect Valentine’s Day date location if you take your kids out on dates during the day. We love kid date nights and this is such a fun, family friendly place to go, with good food that’s actually good for you too!
In addition to the churros, they also have tres leches cake on the menu (my husband’s absolute favorite!), chocolate churros, brownies and cheesecake chimichangas.
I had no idea these existed before I went to El Pollo Loco. And now I’m obsessed. Hot on the outside, cold cheesecake on the inside and chocolate around the edges. Yummiest. Thing. Ever. I can’t get enough. Seriously, if you have one near you RUN and grab yourself some of these. Call it a home date night, or just treat yourself because these are amazing.
One last bit of exciting news before I close up for the day, there was another Houston grand opening, this time in Katy! If you live near there, you should stop by and see why we are so excited about all of the new El Pollo Loco locations opening up! There’s one coming later this spring right near my house and I can hardly wait!
Are there any near you? Do you have a favorite meal, dessert or app there?
