Good service and atmosphere. Deep selection of vegetarian options, too. Best of all, it offers quality food at a price that is surprisingly low for the neighborhood.

Delicious- not as fluffy as the white corn ones you get on the street, but very good. Garlic sauce was amazing. Had the Mercedes with chicken and chorizo and the pabellon.

My husband and I ate here last night for dinner. Although the waitress was friendly and attentive unfortunately the food did not match the service. The arepa itself was hard to the point I had trouble even cutting it with a knife. We ordered two...More
