Pueblo Pollo at 2984 State Street closed last August and owner Tayyaba Tahir Malik tells me they opened last Friday at 6578 Trigo Road in Isla Vista, the former home of Checo’s Mexican restaurant, Mojo, 805 Kabob, Lovin Oven Mediterranean Bakery & Cafe, Cafe Int’L, and others. Malik says that her business started as an outlet for Pollo Loco on upper State Street in 2007, then, during the Covid era, rebranded as Pueblo Pollo to eliminated the franchise fee. I am told that ongoing plumbing issues in their State Street building caused them to close and look elsewhere though their catering operations have continued. She says the menu is exactly the same as before.
