We ate here for lunch before going to the Asheville Food and Wine Festival. We both had the chicken enchiladas and were very pleased. The menu is eclectic with a wide variety of Latin food from all over the world. They have outdoor seating with great people watching.

Inventive Latin American menu, great value, delicious, for locavores. Owner operates his own organic farm. Good for breakfasts too. NOT Tex Mex -- much more diversity. We both really enjoyed our meal. Sidewalk tables available.

Very good food. Try the hot sauce! Excellent coffee and the service was spot on. Everything was fresh and awesome. The Amexican platter was spot on.

Great meal and very generous portions for lunch. Neither of us could finish the meal. I had the Tilapa Crepe and my husband had Coffee Pork Chile Relleno. The fish was fresh and the kale, avocado, plantains, pineapple salsa made such a wonderful combination of flavors. Both entrees came with rice and re-fried beans. My husband puts hot sauce on...

This used to be one of our favorite restaurants in Asheville... It has changed for worse. Had a terrible meal. Chorizo sausage not the same... No flavor, in fact none of our dishes had any flavor. This is NOT authentic at all! I don't think that we will be back.

We dropped in to Chorizo last week while in vacation in Asheville after the Early Girl Eatery and Honey Tupelo had long waits. So glad we did! The food was fresh and healthy. Much of the herbs and veggies come from local farms. Highly recommend. The plantains are very good too and brought to the table instead of bread.

Great place with an eclectic menu. Good bar with tropical drinks. I had the pork coffee chili eel keno which was delicious. Lots of locals eat here so you know it's good!

Every time that I visit Asheville, I eat at Chorizo’s. This time we brought the entire family. They were able to accommodate my picky kids with pancakes and bacon, while I was able to eat their breakfast burrito! I’ve always received great service and food. I highly recommend!
