A must for anyone fond of Latin food. Nice environment but most importantly terrific food. Arepas filled with the most delicious beef, pork or chicken. Go now! Very nice friendly service as well.

Had a Groupon so wanted to try Venezuelan food. Very different from anything I'd had before. I tried the sampler which gave a wide selection. Their shredded beef was very good. The cheeses were delicious too. Corn "arepa?" was sweet. I enjoyed all the food....More
