Located down an alley in central Madrid, this is a popular place for churros and chocolate! We were lucky enough to beat the rush and not wait, but every other time we walked by there was a line out the door! 1 portion was plenty to split between 2 people! Tasty and perfect for a chilly day!

We tried churros and chocolate in Barcelona and were just ok with them. Based on San Gines reviews we decided to give it one more try and boy are we glad we did. San Gines takes churro and chocolate to a new amazing level and we were in heaven. A few tips. Go around 10pm. The lines during the day are crazy but die down around 9:30 to 10. We had a couple minute wait. Also, don’t expect a churro like you would get in Mexico or the US all coated with sugar and cinnamon. This dessert is more savory then sweet. The churro has nothing coating it and the chocolate is more of a dark chocolate.

Now, I have a MASSIVE sweet tooth and finish ALL sweet food put in front of me....until now. The Churros here 're fantastic and you get plenty of them, I couldn't eat them all. The only draw back is that I would have liked the chocolate to be richer. Well worth a visit, go go go!

I have tried churros many times, normally with cinnamon and that is the first time I try with chocolate dip. The price is EUR4 with 1 cup of chocolate dip and 6 churros. The churros is hot and the chocolate is not too sweet. If one pack churros not enough, you can buy another one without chocolate dip which cost EUR1.4. Highly recommend Chocolateria San Gines.
