South Bay restaurant owner hands out free tacos when Chargers lose

BONITA (KGTV) - The South Bay Mexican restaurant El Pollo Grill is offering customers a free taco the days after any Chargers loss.

Victor Lopez runs the restaurant on Bonita Rd. near I-805.

Lopez said he was a lifelong Chargers fan until the team moved. Now, he wants the team to go winless, despite what it may cost him.

Customers must say the secret words to the cashier - Spanos Taco.

So far, Lopez' angst is paying off.  He says 400 people accepted a free taco Monday and Tuesday after the Chargers lost to the Miami Dolphins. Those customers spent money on other items.
