I am giving three stars because they said they were going through some changes but this was not what I was expecting. After reading the reviews I was excited to have some Latin food while in the area. Although it was Latin food and it was OK, I don't think it was as great as many of the other reviews... More

This is an amazing little South American restaurant that we lucked upon; it was a little tricky to find, buried in a strip mall, but the food was great and it has a comfortable clean atmosphere. Great service. My sister lived in Peru and did much of the ordering for us, and kept commenting on how authentic the dishes were.... More

Before you even get to the door you are dancing. If you miss South America, the warm welcome, the attention, the music, the food, this is the place for you!

My husband and I ate here after buying a Groupon. Our sons Spanish teachers always orders food for their parties from here since they have such authentic South American entrees. We loved it. Great carne!

My boys and I ate here using a Groupon deal. There are lots of interesting choices on the menu and brought us back to our visit to South America. We enjoyed the different Empanada choices and look forward to trying other options. My pisco sour was so good and a bargain at only $4.50 (Happy Hour special). Our only complaint... More

We went there as a family to celebrate our son's 15th birthday. It was his restaurant of choice; probably because of the large platters! The atmosphere is warm and intimate. The servers are attentive and friendly. Good value!

I purchased a Groupon for Don Churro cafe since it was very near our hotel and the menu online looked like we could both find something we would like. I've had some bad groupon experiences but fortunately this was a good one. This is not a restaurant that we would choose to try normally but we were very happy we... More

This is a family run restaurant. My family and I eat here usually once every other month. The food is consistent and reasonably priced. They used to have music on a weeknight...not sure if they still do. Anyway, we get the Lomo Saltado. Yummy! The lunch specials are a good value, but they only apply during the work week.

Come in to relax, get a Pisco Sour (or two or three, but you better have a designated driver). We have been working our way through the menu. Haven't found anything that wasn't fantastic. Everything is cooked once it is ordered, nothing waiting in the back. Staff is welcoming and very attentive, but not hovering over you.

Thank G A

Don Churro Cafe is a hidden gem located in Chantilly, Virginia specializing in authentic dishes from Peru, Ecuador, Venezuela, Chile, Argentina, Colombia, and Spain. Named one of the region's Best New Restaurants by Northern Virginia Magazine, Don Churro Cafe presents delicacies from the expansive dinner menu, such as ceviche peruano, empanadas and saltenas, gambas al ajillo, Ecuadorian llapingachos, bandeja paisa, and Venezuelan arepas. Homemade churros piped full of manjar blanco (caramel) or delicious Nutella are sprinkled with powdered sugar for good measure. To ensure the quality of our food, all dishes are cooked to order using the freshest ingredients. The chef uses canola or olive oil in all of our dishes, organic coffee in our specialty coffees and recycles all its cooking oil.
