Super friendly owners-- and absolutely delicious food! We were skeptical because of the location and type of restaurant, but we were SO GLAD we went!! We'll definitely come back. The food was delicious! Good flavors of smoked chicken, avocado, lettuce and tomato. Yum!!!

I loved this place. It's so authentic & delicious, I highly recommend that you try their arepas & their empanadas they're to die for. They are really big & they have an assortment of items that you can put into your arepas. The aguas frescas are really good. I really liked the mango drink. The pricing is cheap & it's... More

Wonderful people, great food. I had the bean and cheese arepa. Also a side of yuca, both were five star good. The taste was unbelievable. You can't go wrong, try it.

We were in Vegas for our Convention and wanted to try something a bit different from the regular places. This place is located near the Stratosphere and was a great place to eat. The previous reviews are spot on - good food, good service. Everyone in the place seemed to enjoy their meals as well. We had the empenadas and... More

LOVE the food. I wish I could have some right now. We had the pork butt, the slow cook beef and the chicken with creamy sauce, the friend yucca and the plantain. The plantains were delicious. The lady working the cash register was very nice and helpful, she recommended the chicken arepas and I'm glad I took her advise.

This small local eatery found past the hustle of the main Las Vegas strip provides fresh, made to order Venezuelan food for a reasonable price. The chicken and beef are tender on the palate and gentle on the stomach yet the dishes are infused with plenty of flavor. We ate lunch mid-week around 12 noon and enjoyed rather quick service...

The ethnic restaurant of our choice was Viva Las Arepas, a Venezuelan restaurant. We chose it because none of my mates have had Venezuelan cuisine before. The ambiance of the place was very open and the place was bright. The food was something we had not tasted before, but the ingredients from the food reminded me of cuisine from my... More
