Peruvian
Don Churro is a fusion Peruvian restaurant bringing together traditional recipes and ingredients with new trends. The ceviches are a must to try! The trio of ceviches presented by our chefs will transport you to Lima, Peru where life revolves around its gastronomy. Aside from ceviches, Don Churro is praised for its lomo saltado, chaufas, seco de cordero, arroz con mariscos and of course, the bistec de barrio, a meat lover's first choice. But let's not forget about the famous churros rellenos with dulce de leche (caramel) and nutella that are just delicious!

We lived in Peru, and Don Churro has very well-prepared and tasty Peruvian food. Everything was fresh and right off the stove hot, and my wife said the Pisco Sour was delicious. We didn't try the actual churros as the food proportions were very generous (with an appetizer you could split an entree), but they looked great at the next table. There was a live singer accompanied by generated music, but he was pretty good and very entertaining, but not so loud as to drown out conversation.

Part of Anniversary Weekend. This is authentic Peruvian food presented beautifully and cooked just right. We had anticuchos, causa, and lomo saltado as well as pisco sours and moradas. The churros with dulce de leche were a sweet finish. The lomo stood out as did an excellent pisco sour. The flavors were well balanced and nostalgic for us.

Food was good but service could have been better. Yet, once it was realized we were forgotten, our server was much more attentive.

Good was good. Cook closed early and we did not get our churros. Waiters need to tell people in advance at what time the cook will close.
I made a reservation through Open Table but t hey had no idea about the reservation when we arrived.

Went here for a girls night out and the food was delicious. We shared the emanates sampler(so good). I got the arroz con pollo and it was super good. Plus the serving was huge. I had enough for lunch the next day. Best churros I’ve ever tasted. I highly recommend this place.

We wanted to try a new place. Food was okay. Waitress barely spoke English...was nice but could barely communicate with her.

Very good and very interesting food. Our waitress was just wonderful and had good recommendations for anyone who didn't know anything about Peruvian food. I'll definitely go again.

Amazing food, and fabulous wait staff! We especially enjoyed the Pisco Sours, and the traditional dishes from Peru. The food was every bit as good or better than what we had in Lima!

What a treasure to find in a little shopping-mall. The decor is fun, the staff is delightful, but the food is divine! Don't miss the ceviche. Everything we tried had nuanced, wonderful tastes.

I recently went to Peru and loved the food. I thought I would have to wait until I travelled again to experience it, but this restaurant was really authentic and had great food! It made it even nicer that I went with Peruvian friends, who also enjoyed it. I loved the decorations and the ability to practice my Spanish.

The ceviche clasico was excellent. The sweet potato pairing made it even better. The cheese empanada was an added treat. Unfortunately they didn't have the dessert I wanted but the meal was very tasty. Will be back to dine there again.

Made reservations through OpenTable and the restaurant did not honor them. The restaurant was closed for a private party yet I was still able to make a reservation. Very disappointed.

I had eaten here before under different management and the food was delicious. They may have just had an off night because the lomo saltado was very chewy and salty and tasted like it was only cooked in soy sauce.

Drinks were good, service was great just an off night for cooking i guess

Food was OK. Service was slow. I think it’s new and they’re still working out the kinks
