Food was authentic and excellent! We had the Combo number 3. The chili relleno was perfect. We will be back. Caution: the home made bottle of hot sauce is hot. Good, but hot.

Great to have another delivery option other than pizza and chinese. Fast delivery and good food. Will definitely order from El Carbonaro again.

We went to El Carbonero Restaurant in Lorton for dinner. While we've picked up pupusas before, this was our first time sitting in the restaurant for a meal. We ordered four different types of pupusas and they were all great. The pork is AWESOME, but the homemade marinated cabbage and hot sauce really makes the meal. The kids split a chicken and cheese quesadilla, and it was out of this world. Seriously! We all love the beans and rice, and everyone enjoyed the homemade horchata. This is a family-run restaurant and the sisters were very warm and attentive. All of the food was fantastic and, it's very affordable. We will definitely be back soon.

So glad to have a good Mexican restaurant near me! Nice bar and happy hour, clean and friendly and a step above others I've patronized. Good for large gatherings as well.
