When was this opened?

When was this opened?

Owner and crab lover Joe LoPresti opened LOPO's in the spring of 2010, with a vision of creating Chantilly's BESTcrab shack. The owner grew up eating crabs on the eastern shore and wanted to share the summertime favorite with locals far and wide. LOPO's is mainly a take out shack but regulars have made it home by eating outside on the picnic tables while enjoying their steamed treats.

LOPO's is committed to serving only the finest seafood, made with the days fresh catch. Everything is made to order.

After just one bite, LOPO's will be your favorite crab shack
