 Los Chorros Restaurant came into being in February of 1989, when Pedro and Reina Lazo decided to open their own restaurant after 12 years of experience in the Mexican and Salvadorian food industry. They wanted to literally start a "mom and pop" restaurant that would service the Wheaton, Maryland Area. They wanted to maintain an authentic taste and "at home" feel. 

Los Chorros began as a 75 person carryout style restaurant and in the winter of 1995 expanded into the neighboring local. After a 3 month total renovation, the restaurant would now sit 175 and house a full bar. It's been nothing but success since 1989, with several good reviews, including The Washington Post and Washingtonian Magazine, to name a few. 

We continue provide this at home feel, and taste. Please feel free to come in and say hola to Pedro and Reina Lazo.

"We wanted to create a place where you could feel at home and feel comfortable bringing your friends and family."- Pedro and Reina

Review - Los Chorros, Wheaton, MD
Cynthia Hacinli, Washingtonian Magazine | November 22, 2005

Among the Tex-Mex offerings: Taquitos, guacamole served with house-made flour tortilla chips, and pork-rib fajitas are the way to go. On the Salvadoran side are several interesting soups. Best is the bowl with shrimp, peppers, and eggs, though chicken with wings and vegetables, and beef short ribs with cassava and plantains are not far behind. Fans of tripe soup will want to try the version here. Also worth a look are corn-flecked tamales, pupusas (a thick tortilla pocket filled with cheese, pork, or both), and fried whole red snapper.
