Los Carnales opens for business in Chantilly

A new Mexican restaurant has officially opened its doors along Highway 50 in Chantilly — just a short hop down the road from South Riding and Stone Ridge.

It’s called Los Carnales Tex-Mex Grill. It went into the space that used to be Picante, another Mexican-style restaurant.

We first reported on the new spot — with its extensive menu — last month. The line-up of dishes includes burritos, enchiladas, quesadillas, and chimichangas as well as steak, chicken, and seafood dishes.

The restaurant quietly opened its doors earlier this month — bringing with it all the usual Mexican restaurant favorites including jumbo margaritas, Taco Tuesday specials, and more.
