"We know keeping those New Year's resolutions are a challenge, and our calorie-counting customers want and deserve more than just a salad when they go out to eat," El Pollo Loco CMO Ed Valle said in the release. "El Pollo Loco has long been recognized for healthier options. Our new 5 Under 500 Calories Menu extends those offerings to give our guests more choices at a caloric count they can feel good about."

The 5 Meals Under 500 Calories Menu will be displayed on in-store and drive-thru menu boards. Served a la carte or as part of a combo meal with a small drink, the new menu is available at all El Pollo Loco restaurants for $5.99 each. Prices and participation may vary.
