El Pollo Loco is a fast-food restaurant chain specializing in Mexican grilled chicken. It is headquartered in Costa Mesa, California.[1][2] "El Pollo Loco" is Spanish for "The Crazy Chicken".

El Pollo Loco's signature dish is pollo asado, a grilled marinated chicken. Over time, the chain has expanded into burritos and salads, and serves items that compete with Taco Bell, Del Taco, and other Mexican-style restaurants.

Juan Francisco Ochoa started the restaurant in Guasave, Sinaloa, Mexico, in 1975. By 1979, the chain had expanded throughout northern Mexico. In 1980, its first U.S. restaurant opened in Los Angeles, California, at 503 Alvarado Street, near Sixth Street.[3] In 1983, the American restaurants in the chain were acquired by Denny's, with an agreement where the Ochoa family could continue operate the restaurants in Mexico. American Securities Capital Partners acquired El Pollo Loco in 1999, and sold it to current owner Trimaran Capital Partners in 2005.

In the U.S., the El Pollo Loco chain operates in Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Texas, California, and Illinois.

El Pollo Loco operated several restaurants in metro Atlanta, Georgia and in the Hampton Roads of Virginia; these closed by 2011. The chain's franchised restaurants in the Portland, Oregon metropolitan area also closed in 2011. An El Pollo Loco in the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut closed in spring 2012.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
