A word from Don Churro Cafe
Don Churro Café is a unique South American restaurant offering a perfect combination of traditional dishes, authentic flavors and Latin hospitality for the Washington Metropolitan Area.
Our menu is truly a blend of ethnic traditions that come from our mixture of culinary heritages from South America and Spain. Mainly, our menu celebrates artisanal cooking from the countries in the Andean region and reflects its amazingly rich and diverse cuisine such as Peruvian ceviche, Bolivian salteñas, Chilean empanadas, Spanish gambas al ajillo, Ecuadorian hornado, Colombian bandeja paisa and Venezuelan arepas to name a few. Our namesake churros (CHUR-OS), a delicious pastry filled with dulce de leche, nutella or served plain are one of the best in the world.
These unique and delicious dishes await you in a colorful and cozy environment decorated with Latin art. Buen Provecho!

Diner Reviews
  • "We've been to this restaurant multiple times, unfortunately the service this past weekend was not good. Appetizer came out with dinner and two of the dinners came after the other dinners came out. One of the dinners came out when the rest of the party was done eating. Desert also came out separately - we ordered churros with ice cream. The ice cream came out first and was almost melted by the time the churros came out. My dinner was luke warm as well."

  • "The service was WONDERFUL and the dessert was amazing! Food was just delicious - had the chicken soup(Caldo de pollo) and potato pancakes (Papa rellena) and Chicken sandwich (Sánduche de pollo saltado) and Combination plate (Bandeja Paisa). It was a lot of food - but delicious - the dessert Churros Rellenos (nutella) was to die for...had the house Chardonnay and Cabernet - good assortment of bottled beer. My only knock is that it was a little bit loud - but it was Saturday night at dinner time and was quieting down as we left at around 8:30 - the ambiance is great - comfortable seating, good lighting, nice music. Great mix of customers - lots of couples, but we sat next to a big (well behaved) group with kids. We will return!"

  • "This spot is my absolute favorite place for specialties of Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, and more. The food is fresh and always perfectly prepared and presented. Because of that, this is not a place you go to for a quick bite. Plan to stay awhile and enjoy their sangria. I recommend the "tostones con todo"and "arroz con pollo", but everything I have had has been delicious. Don't let the strip mall exterior fool you - this is a great spot for a nice date and an adventurous palate."

  • "We went for Valentine's Day. Don Churro is a refreshing local place not afraid to introduce different dishes. Many dishes were very tasty and artfully presented. Wait staff experienced with dishes and made good recommendations. We will definitely come back to try out more tapas and regular dishes. The musicians were talented and"

  • "If you like food - come here! My mother and I were delighted. The food was fresh, truly authentic, and beautifully presented. The staff was pleasant and accommodating. They were running some native specials for El Dia de los Muertos. Some of the Chilean dishes rivaled the quality of those we've had done in Chile, the pisco sour was beautifully done with frothy egg white (although the cinnamon addition was curious - maybe that's a Peruvian custom?), and there were some delightful surprises in the tapas we chose. I doubt you can go wrong in ordering here. Very close to Dulles airport - and I will definitely be back!"

  • "This place didn't look like much from the outside- just a storefront in a strip mall. But once inside it was charming with delicious food, great service, and warm ambiance. We shared a platter of crisp empanadas- each one from a different country's cuisine (I believe Colombian, Argentinian, and Ecuadorean). They were the lightest and crispest empanadas I'd ever had, and delicious. I had a lovely shrimp dish, and my friend had pork. For dessert we naturally had churros- filled with caramel and nutella goodness. I definitely would go here again!"
