Why can't I eat all my meals at Chorizo? I am seriously contemplating moving to Asheville to get my Chorizo fix. Every time I've eaten here, I am impressed by the quality of the food. It looks fancier on the website than in person, but the quirky charm of the place makes you feel at home. Everything we've tried off... More

A lovely little restaurant in Asheville. I told the woman I only had 20 minutes before I have to leave for my flight and they were very accommodating. The waitress made a great recommendation and the dish was incredible. The Argentinian brunch was phenomenal! And I even caught my flight on time. Highly recommend!

We spent a rainy evening with friends at this modest location. The menu is replete with multiple varieties of Spanish inspired offerings. My lamb fajitas came in generous quantities and was quite tasty. My wife had a delicious shrimp dish. We also took advantage of the $5 mojitos.

My brother and I tried Chorizo after walking downtown area and deciding on a restaurant. When we saw the menu, we picked this place because of the many different choices. We were greeted with that Asheville charm everyone seems to possess. The atmosphere was very nice and everyone was smiling... this trend would continue through our meal. Very nice people... More

This was my first visit to Chorizo's and I was definitely not dissapointed. I ordered the chicken and shrip paella and was very satisfied. The ingredients were somewhat different from what I used to, but the flavor was excellent and the portion size was just right. The outdoor seating is nice, and the service we were given was well received... More

At least that's what I think I had. But it was amazing. I never had such good food (that was also organic, or otherwise healthy food) in a Southern State. I'm sure they had something deep-fried. But everything I saw come out of the kitchen I wanted to taste test.

Had dinner there during the week. I ordered the paella, which turned out OK. Nothing spectacular. They put a lot of different ingredients into their paella, which ended up giving too many flavors, thus no distinct taste. Service was very good and great outdoor seating.

I’ve eaten at Chorizo’s about 10 times. It has never disappointed me. I try a new dish on every visit and each time it has been amazing. I highly recommend their brunch burritos. Also, they have daily drink specials that are tasty – I had the Pineapple Margarita on my latest visit. You can’t go wrong. It is a small... More

In a city with so many great restaurants, Chorizo has become our favorite. On our most recent visit, the Chili Poblano Relleno seemed to mix a new flavor into every bite. My husband enjoyed the Madrileña - which combined chicken, chorizo, and shrimp with beans, plantains, veggies and spices. The drinks were exceptional as well - the bartender was willing... More

Great food, outstanding service, great for gluten free dining. The lamb tacos are amazing! And the staff, they really are awesome.
