Fantastic, authentic Latin cuisine. Not fancy or expensive. Very friendly staff, clean and quick. Great place to try something unique.

Probably the best value meal I have had in Orlando. Nice welcome and help with the menu offered. Lunch special $ 7.25 and chicken Santa Barara $6.50 Both very tasty and filling. It is a cafe, so not fine dining, but above average excellent home cooked food. Worth a second and perhaps a third visit to explore the menu.

Incredible - authentic venezuelan food. We went for lunch. A must have is the Q'Kenan Santa Barbara sandwich - we had Grilled beef. Awesome. Also try the Patacon Q'Kenan...yummy. The spicy sauce on the table was great. Loved it and will come again next time I am passing through.

I am a connoisseur of south and central American cuisine. I look for a place with a great steak, rice beans tostones and some fire aji (spicy saulce)!!! Q'kenan, not only takes it for a top place for great Latin food in Orlando, but it may take my #1 overall place period. We originally went based on the great reviews... More

We were staying nearby and wanted to try Venezuelan food. Perhaps I expected too much, but the food was not that different from other Latin American food. The place appears to be popular with the local people. I was surprised to see that for a bill of $18 for two entres they had tacked on another 15% tip. This is... More

On the recommendation of our Segway guide, Carlos, we decided to give this place a try. We attempt to avoid chains and eat local food. The food was new to us, and fortunately Carlos gave us a couple of suggestions what to order. We were extremely happy with our lunch. My husband ordered Parrilla Tepui Grilled beef griddle cheese, fried... More

I went there after looking for an arepa place around the area. We sat and waited for about ten minutes for a server to come to our table–the server wasn't very friendly. We ordered arepas and juice, which took over 15 minutes, and we were pretty much the only ones there at 3:30pm. My shredded meat (carne mechada) was room... More

I would have liked to eat here every night! Great server, very helpful. Wonderful selection of dishes on the menu. Hard to choose what to order. We had cheese sticks, empanadas, four entrees, flan, tres leches, beer in perfect chilled mugs!

We found this place on yelp. It is a tiny place in a strip mall. When we got there all the tables were full or being cleaned so we were asked to wait a moment. My husband wanted to bolt based on how it looked. It was clean but no frills. Very plain tables and chairs. I told him I... More

Food- tasty, had the empanadas, arepas, and platanos. All were very tasty. Cafe com Leche and flan for dessert were also nice. Service was helpful and quick. Very close to Vineland premium outlets, and a short drive from Downtown Disney. Reasonably priced.
