Located in the Eisenhower East district, Nando’s restaurant is helping the people of Alexandria, VA find their spicy place, one piece of flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken at a time. Always fresh, never frozen, our chicken is marinated in PERi-PERi for 24-hours, and flame-grilled to order in the heat level of your choice. And a little secret you may not know…we partner with small-scale farmers in Southern Africa to source our authentic PERi-PERi chilis.
Nando's originated in a small town in South Africa in 1987 and has grown to include locations across the globe, including our home here in the Eisenhower district. Located in The Foundry and within walking distance to Carlyle Crossing, AMC Theater, National Science Foundation, the Patent Office and all the shopping Eisenhower East has to offer, Nando’s Alexandria is an ideal spot for happy hour, private parties, and upscale, casual dining before the show or game. Share and enjoy our delicious PERi-PERi dishes in a creative and contemporary space.
