Every time we come to Chorizo's it is a wonderful experience. Four of us went and ordered different things and all we could talk about was how wonderful the food tasted. The ingredients are very fresh and very authentic from the guacamole to the fried plantains to the paellas. The portions were large but not ridiculous. The cocktails are excellent... More

If you are looking for a unique take on some traditional Latin favorites this is a great place to go. They have a wonderful standard menu as well as an extensive daily menu. My friend and I had two different kinds of paella. Both were exceptional. The place is very small and a little cramped but it's worth it.

Chorizo is fabulous! The food is wonderful in taste and presentation. The portions are large ... great for sharing. The avocado quacamole is fresh, made right at your table and perhaps the best I've ever tasted. Great sangria. Great staff... friendly and helpful. Love this place!! Will definitely return.

The food was spectacular, the portions almost too big. The drinks were amazing. My wife loved the homemade sangria and the margaritas were amazing. We will definitely go back on our next trip.

We've been here a few times now when we come to Asheville. The lunch burritos are HUGE! You can definitely split them with someone. The pork is some of the best pork I've ever had. Everything here is so good! The music is a little loud, but other than that, this place is amazing.

I travel to Asheville 2-3 times a month and this place is always on my lunch list! Fantastic, fresh food. Friendly wait staff, and they always get you in and out right at an hour.
