Located in Arlington’s Ballston Quarter neighborhood, Nando’s Ballston restaurant is helping people 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 in Ballston Quarter. Convenient to downtown DC and Marymount University, Nando’s Ballston restaurant is an ideal spot for happy hour, family gatherings, and upscale, casual dining. Come see us to share and enjoy our delicious PERi-PERi dishes in a creative and contemporary space.
