El Pollo Loco's chosen motto is "Flame-Grilled Mexican Chicken." I'm not certain what's so special about Mexican chickens, but they sure are tasty! El Pollo Loco sets itself apart from other fast-food restaurants with its flame-grilled chicken, marinated in a combination of garlic, citrus and other spices. This flavorful and juicy chicken is the staple of basically the entire menu. Granted, I've never seen so many delicious options for poultry dishes. Perhaps that's what sets the Mexican chicken apart!
Open daily from 11am - 9pm
Cabo San Luis is a casual restaurant with a delightful "Baja" flavor: the walls have grass hut roofs, tables are covered with a tropical vinyl, and cervesa ads abound. The biggest decor highlight for our family is the large tropical fish tank. Set in the middle of one of the dining areas, the square tank is framed with a countertop and barstools making it a perfect place to eat and watch the fish. (Somehow vastly different from eating a burger while watching the cattle graze.)
Open Mon, Wed - Fri 11am - 9pm, Sun till 8:30pm. Closed Tuesday

Tus Amigos is a funny little restaurant in Los Osos that our family loves to frequent.
