You can't go wrong with anything on this menu. Every single bite is made with love and quality ingredients. Some of my faves are the Chocolate and Chili Ribs, spinach and cheese empanadas, beef empanadas....pretty much any empanada. The arepas are fantastic the drinks are fantastic and well priced. The people that work here are fantastic! We love this place.

What's not to love about this place?! Doesn't look like much from the outside, but step inside and get immediately caught up in the vibe of Valencia. The entire menu is on a huge chalkboard that can easily be read while waiting for your table. Specials are posted. If you don't know what you want when you sit down, ask... More

Happened to be on the "wrong" coast for work..haha especially in Dec and after seeing customers in Norwalk pulled up my trip advisor app to see best place for lunch. Atmosphere great, service great(sat at bar) and food was amazing. Eclectic offering, let the server guide me and did the sample platter. Also got a Baun Mai for a treat.... More

First, note that the "luncheria" is NOT only a luncheon place. Rather, it delivers superb service breakfast, lunch and dinner. I have enjoyed all three for the past few years. Breakfasts feature a wide range of burritos and areppas, excellent coffee, quick turn around. Dinners are consistently good and very reasonably priced. Last night returned for the umpteenth time and... More

The story behind this place is awesome. The fact that they moved out of a small storefront on Main Ave. into a bigger spot down the road and have had continued success is wonderful! Great food, great drinks, reasonably priced and a great staff. I normally go in for dinner to have a few drinks and an arepa or empanada... More

We became loyal patrons of Valencia years ago when they were at their old locale. This restaurant is so popular you always have to wait for a table. I believe they now take reservations for larger parties or you can call in advanced if you're a larger party... The food is awesome, the service great & friendly, it's very inexpensive,... More

Service can be slow, but I think that's part of the price for good priced, amazingly tasty, and always fresh food. The specials deserve attention, always something new and delicious on the board.

Venezuelan Beach Food! Great menu. Try "The Works" for a a variety of samplings. Make reservations for Saturday night for 6 or more! There's a long wait time if you don't. Bar seating, nice staff, great portions and priced right. They have a food truck too! A lot of people were taking take-out because they know about the long line... More
