This is the best place for burritos downtown. Their sauces are excellent, and the food is fresh. They have a small patio area that is great in the summer. Prices are reasonable. All in all - a nice place for lunch with friends, or to go.

Cooked to order burgers in a quirky but comfortable atmosphere. Burgers cover a wide variety of tastes and are generous in portions. Fries are excellent. Servers are friendly and attentive. Good place for business lunch. Has a patio for summer dining.

I have been here for lunch a few times now. The food is constantly good. Flavorful and tasty and never rushed. The atmosphere is great and the location is ok. I would recommend this to anybody looking for something a little different. This is kind of like mexican food, but more healthy and different.

Sat outside on a beautiful fall day for lunch to enjoy a Peruvian Mule and a delicious meal. The Peruvian Mule was their take on the Moscow mule which was refreshing and extremely tasty. I ordered the Big Mexican with chicken, which was really BIG! Very tasty dish with rice, beans, and chicken with an enchilada sauce. Too big to... More

The food here is simply amazing! It was recommended to us by an employee at the Ohio State House gift shop, which is nearby. Everyone in our group of 6 adults enjoyed our lunch very much. Just to be clear, this is not Mexican food. As the menu states, "an arepa is a flattened and grilled corn meal bun originating... More

There are so many good things on the menu but I will say my favorite is the Platacon. A plantain smashed and fried and topped with lettuce, beans, cheese and choice of meat.

We love arepas at home and were so excited to find a Venezuelan restaurant while visiting Columbus. El Arepazo was delicious! Super friendly service, freshly prepared and delicious food! The fresh tropical juices are a must try. Very clean restaurant with great service.

We visited El Arepazo during restaurant week so I'm not sure how it is other times. We had a 50 min wait on a Friday night for 5 of us. It was a beautiful evening and there is a beautiful trail along the river not far from the restaurant which was a nice way to spend the time. It was... More

The place is very small, but clean and well done. It makes you feel like you are in a much bigger city. I had the giant burrito with fish as the main ingredient and fries for a side. The burrito was good, the fries were good... but nothing great and certainly not worth the price. If you want a burrito,... More
