Chop Shop Taco

Chop Shop Taco


Thanks for an awesome Cinco de Mayo meal - the street corn w/ foie gras butter and margarita were amazing! Really appreciated that the team double checked my order to make sure there was no cilantro (mild allergy) without being asked despite how crazy busy they were! Awesome first visit, my friend and I will def be back for my curbside pickup!
Was at Chop Shop last night for dinner and WOWZA!! So good that I'm craving it today. The drinks were great and Sam the Bartender made the best Old Fashioned!!
Dinner at the Chop Shop to see Chef Ed. excellent food.
I’ve anxiously awaited the opening of Chop Shop Taco for a year now. I even have the opening day of May 1st marked on my calendar. So, I was over the moon when we stumbled upon the soft opening last night. We had already eaten dinner so we just sat at the bar for a few cocktails. AMAZING cocktails - creative, well-balanced, and delicious. The bartenders (Sam, Kelsey, and John) offered up great conversation as well. I’m so excited to have you guys in the neighborhood. We’ll be back soon.

Chop Shop is a cocktail and beer, taco-slinging, car garage in the heart of Parker-Gray Alexandria. Our menu, inspired by modern comfort food, is complemented by an extensive rotating cocktail program.

Housed in a defunct 1970’s chop shop.

Operating as usual

Sunday reading @washingtonpostmag

This is the kind of lunch we could go for every day.

Ironically, we do eat this everyday...and are just fine with that.

There’s a bunch of @fritolay chips under the chicken, cheese, beans, pickled onions and crema.


House queso dip!


Dip your chips or tacos...

Yes, smother all the tacos with smashed avocado.

Why not?

Easy decision.


People of DMV:

The Chilaquiles Sandwich is still available.

That is all.

Review | These 3 restaurants make you feel like a neighbor, and we all need a dose of that

Proud moment!

Tom Sietsema reviews Chop Shop!

“Even from the sidewalk, Chop Shop Taco elicits a grin. A hot pink paint job will do that. McIntosh says the vivid color borrows from Tulum and other Mexican getaways and helps this fixture of the Parker-Gray area stand out. As if the double-parked cars out front aren’t promotion enough.”

Thank you Washington Post! Count on Spice Xing, Bar Charley and Chop Shop Taco to make you smile

Name another place that serves a street style corn dog.
