Mission, Vision, Values

Our Story

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.  This legacy has been handed over to their two sons, Omar and Jason Lazo.  The Lazo's strive to keep the same level or quality of food and service that has made Los Chorros a staple in the Wheaton/Silver Spring community.

Los Chorros began as a 75 person carryout style restaurant and in the winter of 1995 expanded into the adjacent location. 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, AOL City Guide, and The Gazette.

We continue provide an at home feel, excellent service, reasonable prices, with a very family friendly atmosphere. Please feel free to come in and say hola to the Lazo Family.

Guests

You're the reason we put forth our best each and every day. We believe in making all of our foods from scratch just like mom used to make.  Our sauces, chips, salsas, marinades, and all dishes are made in house.  We promise the freshest ingredients including seafood that is delivered 7 days a week.  We want you to feel like you are sitting down to a home cooked meal every time you visit.  Top notch service and fresh food quality are our number one priority. 

One thing we've learned in all the years of running our restaurant is that no two guests are the same. We can customize the dining experience for  anyone who walks through our doors.
