Shredded Beef Birria Returns To El Pollo Loco


Shredded Beef Birria is back on the menu at El Pollo Loco, and just like last time, the brand is giving fans the chance to both experience and celebrate authentic Mexican flavors in a variety of dishes, including a Grilled Burrito, Overstuffed Quesadillas, and two Crunchy Tacos.

According to El Pollo Loco, for this year’s launch, the brand’s culinary team is introducing some new upgrades to their Shredded Beef Birria offerings, including a crispier shell for the crunchy taco and a more flavorful Consomé Dipping Sauce.

All Beef Birria orders are packaged in a custom carrier box that features your choice of one of three entrées, a side of Fresh Tortilla Chips, and Consomé Dipping Sauce.

El Pollo Loco’s Shredded Beef Birria menu options include the following:

  • Birria Grilled Burrito Box: A warm flour tortilla filled with shredded beef birria, beans, rice, cheese, sour cream, cabbage, onion, and cilantro. Served with Fresh Tortilla Chips and Consomé sauce on the side for dipping.
  • Birria Crunchy Taco Box: Shredded beef birria, cheese, onion, and cilantro stuffed inside of a new, crispier taco shell that features a more dippable, crunchier texture. Each taco box includes two crunchy tacos served with Consomé Dipping Sauce and Fresh Tortilla Chips.
  • Birria Overstuffed Quesadilla Box: Shredded beef birria, cheese, avocado, onion, and cilantro wrapped in a warm flour tortilla filled that’s artfully folded in a hexagon shape. Served with Fresh Tortilla Chips and Consomé sauce on the side for dipping.
