About Us

Customers have enjoyed the fire-grilled juicy chicken, a casual family atmosphere and reasonable prices at El Pollo Supremo for over 30 years. This recipe for success was created by founder and current day majority owner, Ramiro Alvarez.

In 1982, Ramiro opened the firstĀ El Pollo Supremo in the agricultural town of Oxnard, CA. Due to the immediate recognition for having the healthiest and most flavorful chicken, he was joined by 3 friends in efforts to expand to new locations.

By 1984, the original restaurant was sold and the 1st New Jersey location opened. The Spanish International Research Institute quickly voted El Pollo Supremo as the best fast food chicken restaurant in all of New Jersey and New York. Many other acknowledgments have been received from various forms of media over the past 3 decades, but nothing speaks to its time withstanding quality like multiple generations of loyal customers.

El Pollo Supremo is proud to currently serve 4 New Jersey locations with delicious and authentic Latin American and Cuban cuisine using the finest of fresh ingredients. The Chicken is marinated overnight with the original top-secret Alvarez family recipe and is char-broiled to perfection on the grill. Aside from the house specialty, El Pollo Supremo offers an extensive menu full of freshly prepared local favorites such as churrasco steaks, authentic rice and beans, yucca, tostones, light salads, some kid friendly options and much more.

Each location has an operating manager that is also a part owner entrusted with upholding EL Pollo Supremo standards. From the entire El Pollo Supremo team, we invite you to dine with us or allow us to help you by catering your next banquet or family gathering.
