This is a casual restaurant and the Peruvian food and Pisco Sour were excellent. The service was superb. I have an allergy to red and black pepper and the chef came out to confirm with me prior to preparing my meal. The chicken dish recommended by the waitress and the French fries were delicious. The Pisco Sour was superbly made... More

The place offers all the traditional Peruvian food your heart wishes for...the different dishes are mostly very very good but there where huge variations - from the perfect yuca with huancaina sauce to a less than average aji de gallina. The lomo saltado was excellent, and so was the causa. The ceviche, however, was too bitter. The highlight were the... More

Tasty chicken and beef dishes with authentic yellow rice and roasted vegetables. Nice selection of desserts like Tres Leches paired with a rich espresso or vibrant coffee make the meal complete.

Although nicely redecorated by new owner and with a smaller menu, the service is slow. The new owner seems nice but very quiet and is the only person serving, so expect a good wait. The prices are a bit high and portion are incorrect for the money. Ceviche is $12 and only a bit larger then a appetizer. Cocktails are... More

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

Description
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.
