About Us


Our Story

In the early 80's 5 friends came together with hopes of creating their American dream. We opened our first "El Pollo Supremo" in March of 1982, located at  24th street and Shotwell, San Francisco. 

Years passed and each friend/business partner moved away.

In 1994, we then moved our location to 5210 Mission street, San Francisco, where we currently are today.

We are family owned and operated. The chicken recipe is original and a "Top Secret." We pride ourselves in giving the best service local and freshest ingredients and  best quality service & food  possible.

Celebrating 25 years in 2019 and still going strong!

We are so Thankful for Wonderful employees and regular customers! Without you this wouldn't be possible
