The free chicken saga turns into a cockfight, with El Pollo Loco thinking outside the bucket and ruffling the feathers of a wounded KFC.
Well, KFC's loss appears to be El Pollo Loco's gain. The chain -- which locally has an Uptown location -- announced this week that it will accept the coupons that KFC started denying its customers this week.
The restaurant is also taking it one step further, extending the promotion to Mother's Day, which the KFC coupons were not supposed to be good for.
In a video released by El Pollo Loco this week, the restaurant asks "Does KFC have something against mothers?"
Ouch. Talk about choking a chicken when it's down.
