Following the advice of fellow Trip Advisor Reviewers we had lunch at Q'Kenan & it was fantastico! We never had Venezuelan food before but our waiter, Juan Carlos, guided us expertly thru the menu. I chose Pabellon Criollo, Venezuela's National dish & my wife had Arepa Santa Barbara. Both were muy bien. We had their Flan for dessert & it was the best I ever had! It's a cozy, spotlessly clean restaurant adorned with the flag, colors & pride of Venezuela. We highly recommend Q'Kenan!

When we returned to our hotel, we decided to look around for something unique instead of the usual fast food places. After checking out local listings, we settled on this place. It's located in a strip mall not far from our hotel.

When we got there, there was a line out the door even though it was around 1:30 PM. Despite the line, we were seated fairly quickly inside the restaurant (they had outdoor seating as well). When we walked in, the smells were amazing and made our mouths water.

We were familiar with some of the food like empanadas and plantains, but we weren't sure was arepas or cachapas were. Our waiter was very patient with us and happily explained the various food items. Based on his recommendations, we ordered different empanadas as well as an arepa, cachapa, and some plantains.

The empanadas arrived first and we attacked them quickly since we were pretty hungry. The pastry shells were nice and crisp and the inside was full of flavor. We ordered two different kinds (chicken and fish) and both were really good. The rest of our order arrived shortly and everything tasted amazing.

After our meal, we left and there was still a line outside trying to get in. That should tell you just how popular this place is. And after eating there, I can understand why. If you have a chance to eat here, come, you won't be disappointed.

Service was top notch. It's just a strip mall, but the staff was very accommodating and helped us select our food. Everything was excellent. Pricing was great. Definitely a good place to eat!!

Down from Canada doing a 2 week stint at disney and universal and needed a break from the parks over priced fair.

Found this place and where very happy!!!

Super friendly staff and very helpful
understanding the menu, as it is primarily Venezuelan. The food was amazing and more then we could hope to eat!!

If your looking for a great break from the parks and other overpriced fair make sure you stop in...

6 stars if i could give them!
