Good Tex-Mex/Salvadorean Food

This restaurant is kind of tucked away around the corner of a small strip mall in Wheaton (just off Georgia Avenue). A few steps up and then a few steps down and you're in a cozy dining room being greeted by a very friendly wait staff. Los Chorros serves good, family style food that covers most... read more

With plenty of hispanic competition, this is our all time favorite in Wheaton, MD. A small doorway on a side street leads you downstairs to a wonderful, hidden gem of a restaurant. One of the first and quickly expanded, this place is still often very busy (but almost always able to get a table). With a clear family vibe, the... More

The first thing to know is that this is a good sized dining room with a small, almost hidden, entrance on the side street. Just off Georgia Ave, with a large county pay parking lot adjacent, the restaurant is down a flight of stairs and opens into an area on 2 levels. The papusas are great! Trios Enchiladas are a...

I hadn't been to Los Chorros for quite a few years as I had moved from the area. This past week my son & his wife took my husband and me out to dinner. Los Chorros is as great as it was over 20 years ago. The service is pleasant & attentive & you are not rushed at all. Crispy... More

We ate here in conjunction with a wedding rehearsal dinner and were favorably impressed. The management and staff were friendly and helpful. The food was flavorful and well prepared, reminiscent of my missionay days in Central America. Enjoy!

We've been going to Los Chorros on and off since the late 1990's and have never been disappointed. This is a family friendly and pocket book friendly neighborhood restaurant that is always warm and welcoming to guests. They start you off with delicious tortilla chips and dip and never rush you to order. Relax and enjoy their Latin food, which... More

My wife and I went to Los Chorros tonight. It took us a long time to decide and we both ordered something a little different. She got the beef tacos al carbon. I got grilled flounder. The portion sizes were very generous. My wife got 3 tacos. I got 4 good sized pieces of fish, perfectly prepared. We both remarked... More

We've been going to Los Chorros since the 1990's but hadn't been for a while. Went last night again and remembered what a little gem it is in the heart of Wheaton MD. Once you get over going downstairs to enter and ignore the plain but clean and neat atmosphere, you'll truly enjoy the friendly and attentive service by the... More

I love going to Los Churros! I go almost every week for their Pupusa Suprema. It's huge and delicious and is less than $4! If you want a good hole in the wall, authentic culinary adventure, go here!

I usually find myself heading to Los Chorros when I am having a craving for Salvadoran/Mexican food....always reliable...try any of the Papusas....the Tamales are terrific.... generally I stick to the Salvadoran Combination Platter. The place is basic in décor but is colourful...the wait staff Is friendly...several of the waiters have been there well over 10 years. I am not Latino... More
