Nice corner location with free parking in front. Bus stop a few steps away in front of the white cross. Great food, decent prices, clean place, nice people and ample seating. Love the roasted chicken and the soup, if they have it!

Located in a strip mall above the Stratosphere, this place was really great! Affordable, authentic food. Very friendly staff. Parking available outside and lots of seating.

The actual arepas filling no too original...not the real deal...but good overall. Stick to the tequenos or cachapas for the full venezuelan ecperience
