As others have noted, this place isn't at all fancy, but it is neat and clean. The menu has a broad selection of items which appear to be Spanish-Caribbean with an emphasis on Venezuelan dishes. Portions are quite large and prices are quite low. Beer...More

After an absence of four years, our travels led us back to downtown Harrisonburg and the food at Arepera Las Chamas, which is better than ever. The family that runs the place now offers "Carribbean" food which seems all right but I recommend that you...More

My husband and I stopped in for lunch and had never tried Caribbean food. It was so good. Not over powering with spice. Blended flavors. Really tasty. We will be back.

Visiting from out of town with my family when we found this place. We are Venezuelan so we are very picky with our Latin food. Las Chamas did not disappoint. The food was fresh, delicious, and authentic. Service was excellent!

Doesn't look like anything special but don't be deceived by the furnishings; this food is spectacular. If you are on a budget, this is the place to go. If you haven't eaten Venezuelan food before, I highly recommend the $10 combo plate which is a...More

I'm Venezuelan and found this restaurant to be super delicious! I had the pabellon arepa, the pastelisto with ham and cheese and an empanada with plantains. Just perfect. The service by waitress was wonderful and the owner makes all of the food herself. It was...More
