When it comes to fast-food chains, El Pollo Loco stands out for its marinated, flame-grilled fresh chicken. Five outlets are in the Sacramento area.
In celebration of its 30th anniversary, the company is giving away money-saving coupons at its Web site, www.elpolloloco.com. Most coupons are worth $3; some are good for only 30 cents.
Note that coupons are food- and date-specific. For instance, the coupon that's good only on Sept. 3 subtracts $3 from the purchase price of two chicken tortilla rolls. The coupons valid only on Sept. 6 and 12 subtract $3 from any $15 purchase.
Yet a better deal is the coupon for Sept. 15. Because that date is National Chicken Day, the coupon is good for "a free piece of chicken (leg or thigh), warm tortillas and fresh salsa. No purchase is required."
As usual, be sure to read the fine print on the coupons. For instance, there's this line: "Limit one coupon (on the date) per customer."
