“Best Chicken Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

This hole-in-wall restaurant is unassuming but the food is fantastic. The chicken is the best in the area, the staff is great and the prices are even better. I enjoy going here regularly. The plantains are also a must!

“Great food with a side of friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

I think it says something when a South American restaurant (I don't think you can call this a Mexican restaurant) is full of diners speaking espanol. As others have commented, this place is not replete with fancy decor... but it is homey... and the service is as friendly as it comes.
You cannot go wrong with the rotisserie chicken... I personally like the fried yucca on the side. And what is that wonderful yellow sauce that I love to dip the yucca into? I can't get enough. The chorrellana sandwich is a family favorite and my son is partial to the pupusas.
This is one of our go-to places in Leesburg. As a matter of fact, we went there tonight!

“Can't talk...Too busy eating great chicken!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I should eat here waaay more often. It is always good, always cheap, and the staff is really nice. The first time we went and sat down inside, we got the bill and felt guilty beccause it was so little, the tip was going to be like $4.00. Who leaves a four dollar tip?
When I buy lunch for the landscapers, this is where I go. About $10 per person for a half chicken with two sides. They have never complained. It is a lot of food for the money. If it is enough for guys working outside all day, it is probably enough for me.

“Value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Not the best Mexican or South American cuisine in NOVA, however the prices are very cheap, the service is quick and friendly and it does have that “hole in the wall charm”.
Please don’t go here if you want to have amazing food. However if your running late one night and need something quick and cheap, I would recommend going here. Plus it’s always good to support a local business.

“Fun hole in the wall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

La Chocita Grill is, to all appearances, a hole in the wall tucked next to the Liberty gas station in Leesburg. But never judge a book by its cover, this place offers a decent variety of Latin American food at more-than-decent prices. One can order soups, pupusas, fajitas, and specialties such as Salvadoran enchiladas. A personal favorite is the horchata drinks!
