Tasty meats smoked, very good prices.

Perfect for lunch, very affordable, very tasty meats that is smoked on wooden fire. Worth the walk or taxi ride for sure. Our first meal of our Vegas trip, sure started on the right foot!

This is my first time ever eating Venezuelan food, particularly "arepas". It was different and I enjoyed such experience. I would compare it to something I ate out of a gourmet food-truck: inexpensive, simple, handy (can be eaten on-the-go), somewhat tasty, and definitely filling! Only comment is it was greasy. I would have liked to try the other offerings in... More

This restaurant is close to our home, and it has quickly become one of our favorite places for lunch and dinner. Most of their dishes are naturally gluten free so it's great for my partner who has a sensitivity.

Everything was fresh. I'm not vegetarian but the vegan arepa was amazing. As was the black bean & cheese

We went there for lunch after getting our wedding licence. First meal in Vegas was cheap and very tasty, big portions...try a bit of everything, it's all good! Lots of deep fried stuff...go with the sandwiches if you want to skip the grease...chicken and beef are cooked on wood fire, you can taste it, yummy! I made my research to... More

Seen this place was the number 23 restaurant on tripadvisor and as I've never had Venezuelan food before I thought I'd try it, where do I start, the food was full of grease, the chicken wasn't cooked properly(it was rare)the beef dish was full of fat and the sauces are nothing to write home about, it is a bit out...

I had never had arepas (or any Venezuelan food) before. They were fantastic! The arepas were served with two sauces, which were both very good. I am definitely going to go back there the next time I am in Vegas.
