A word from Picante
Picante! Restaurant and Catering Services, specialize in new-world recipes that appeal to everyone. Conveniently located in the heart of Chantilly, you'll find a casual family atmosphere where you can enjoy traditional-style Mexican cuisine for dine-in, takeout, delivery, and catering. Picante! has been serving the Northern Virginia area since 1994.

Deep in the hearts of Mexicans, there is a passion for food. This passion is a daily fascination. It is the fiber of our existence and we celebrate with fervor each and every one of our meals. For the Mexicans, a meal is not an action but a ritual; this inheritance from ancient times plays an important part in our daily lives. There is an old Mexican saying: "barriga llena, corazon contento" (when the stomach is full, there is a warm heart). Visit Picante! today!

Diner Reviews
  • "While some people prefer the generic chain Tex-Mex restaurant that offer a consistently decent menu tailored for the average American palette, my wife and I enjoy authentic, regional Mexican cuisine. Picante gives us exactly that - excellent dishes mainly from the state of Chihuahua but also from other parts of Mexico. The great food and the very attentive and friendly staff makes Picante a pleasure to visit time and again."

  • "I was hoping this would be a neighborhood gem, but the food was only fair to good. I had a tamale, very heavy and not good flavor, a green tomatillo enchilada--eh. And a mole enchilada--substandard. The margaritas, although made individually--(I heard the blender) were bland and flavorless. The server was sweet and friendly."

  • "My wife ordered Alambres, sauteed green peppers, onions, mushrooms, bacon & sirloin beef smothered in cheese served with homemade flour tortillas. I ordered Adobo de Puerco, lean pork cooked in a savory sauce made with herbs, chiles, guajillo, ancho and costeno peppers served with white rice. Both were delicious. There was enough left over for another complete meal which we enjoyed again that very evening. Service was very friendly and helpful. We just found our new favorite Mexican restaurant! "
