Vegan Options at El Pollo Loco (Updated 2021)

Vegan Options at El Pollo Loco

We struggled for awhile to uncover the vegan options at El Pollo Loco. Then El Pollo Loco released the Vegan Chickenless Pollo Burrito. When a menu item is specifically labeled vegan by the restaurant itself (as well as certified vegan by the American Vegetarian Association), well, who are we to argue?

We are still waiting to hear back from El Pollo Loco on what other menu items they have that are vegan friendly, but in the mean time, enjoy the Vegan Burrito!

Is El Pollo Loco Rice Vegan?

Full disclosure we’re are guessing a bit here as we wait to here back from El Pollo Loco when it comes to the rice, but the fact that there is no rice in the Vegan Chickenless Burrito makes us very skeptical that it’s vegan.

Are El Pollo Loco Beans Vegan?

The Black Beans are in the Vegan Chickenless Burrito so they must be vegan.
