Random stop on a long trip netting an AMAZING breakfast!

We had traveled just over 150 miles from PA and had about another 150 to go. We randomly selected and exit, stopped in a parking lot and GPS'd nearby restaurants. Found this one with omelets on the menu (it was early). OMG! We hit the lottery of breakfasts! Terrific menu - to die for... read more

I went there for lunch once in a while over the years. Food was always good, I love their drink too. If you are in the area, and crave for Latin food, this is it!

Seriously some of the very best Latin American that food I have ever had the pleasure of eating. Our entire meal from start to finish was excellent and packed with flavor. We ordered a pot of steamed mussels, paella, and The Works Dinner. Every bite was fantastic. If it is your first time going I highly recommend getting The Works... More

We had a simple lunch- good service, entrees explained, energetic staff, tasty Latin food. Could be spicier, but was ok. We will go back and experience dinner as this restaurant is here to stay.

While the wait was very long, time passed quickly with family and thus place was amazing! Flavors were delicious. The leftovers were inadvertently discarded and we were offered another whole order for take out. Wonderful afternoon.

Valencia Luncheria is a pleasantly decorated establishment with a nice selection of ethnic dishes. My friend is a frequent visitor of the restaurant and raved about its dishes. We went to Valencia Luncheria around 3 PM on a Sunday afternoon for lunch. The restaurant was mostly empty with only seven patrons having meals. It was medium in size and colorful... More

The food, service is always good. Can be a long wait at prime hours, but worth it. A local gem in Norwalk.

I absolutely love Valencia!!! My kids do as well! I have never had a bad meal there. My kids love all of the empenada choices. I love the "Blue Plate" lunch special. They have great bloody mary's!! My only suggestion is that it is not a place to go when you are in a hurry. I don't mind that though,... More

I've had the distinct pleasure of eating here on more than a few occasions. The food, service, and atmosphere are always great. Pricing is very reasonable. No matter what day or time you come, expect to find it crowded -- and possibly a wait to be seated. The tables are packed in here tight with no wasted space. If you're... More
