El Andariego (5 Olney Sandy Spring Rd), a staple of the Ashton community for over 20 years, has announced that it will close from Monday, August 8th until Sunday, August 14th to provide its staff with a full week of vacation. In announcement made via social media, the restaurant states the following:

“Dear customers of El Andariego Restaurant, we want to notify you that after a long season of hard work of more than 2 years and during a pandemic, we have deemed it good to give a full week of vacation to our respectable staff, who deserve this time off for their unconditional support and honorable service. Due to the lack of more workers, El Andariego Restaurant will be closed from monday, august 8 to sunday, august 14, 2022. Thank you very much for your understanding always. -Consuelo, Jaime, Cristina & Staff.”

More on the history of the restaurant: El Andariego , or “The Wanderer”, after whom our Mexican restaurant is named, we were wandering on our own journey – a journey to set down roots and to share our love of food with a community we could call home. That journey brought us from El Salvador to Ashton, here in Montgomery County, MD.
In 1999, Cristina and friends founded El Andariego, which quickly became one of the first popular Mexican restaurants in the area. A few years later Jaime joined Cristina to oversee the dining room during the evenings. His days were – and are – spent managing the Lafayette Room, a “destination” restaurant at the Hay Adams Hotel in Washington, D.C. More recently, Jaime’s sister, Consuelo Molina, joined the team to head up the kitchen, after more than 16 years in fine Italian restaurants in Washington, D.C., most recently as Executive Chef at Finemondo.
