Tiny & tasty jewel in Wheaton

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.

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!

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

I had trio fajaita pretty good, it was beef, chicken and shrimp. Beef kinda tough, chicken and shrimp ok a little overcooked.... More

I have been going to this place since I was a teenager. The service is always good. I am especially partial to the crab and shrimp quesadilla, enchiladas and the fabulous papusas. Recommended highly.

Out of the many options available in the area. This is by far one of the best ones if you appreciate home made food. I usually go on Saturday for lunch. The food and the service is excellent. What I like best is that I can get quality food at an affordable price.

You have to walk down to the basement level to enjoy this hidden gem. There fish dishes are excellent. Traditional dishes are great, don't be afraid to ask for recommendations.
