Unexpected find for business lunch

I had a meeting with a business acquaintance and she recommended this place. I had never been, but was open to someplace new. We got there a little before noon on a Friday, and there was quite a line. It went out the hallway and onto the porch,but we decided to wait. It moved fairly quickly. After... read more

Authentic Latin flavor. Arepas originate from Venezuela and are thick corn tortillas split open and stuffed with your choice of protein, lettuce, cheese, salsa, etc. The restaurant also offers entrees with sides like fried plantains and black beans. Also a nice selection of natural juices.

One of the best places to grab lunch downtown Columbus! Fair warning though, it is super busy and there is not much seating. Completely worth the wait - and ordering to go is always an option.

The food has always been authentic and delicious. It is well worth the price. Just plan ahead for parking since it is downtown and you will need a walk a bit.

Love this food. Fresh and always a great meal! Love the cilantro sauce people keep coming back so it can be very busy at lunch.

I have been to El Arepazo three times and have always enjoyed my food. The favors are authentic and the food itself is delicious. I have had something different each visit and not been disappointed. My favorite things are two of the ceviche options, the Ohio and the Shrimp. My favorite entrees are the Bandeja Paisa and the Patacon. The... More

First of all, I love the food here. It is described as Latin American food. We ordered and picked up so we got several items and shared so I got to try a variety of dishes. I love the empanadas (both mixed and beef/cheese) and the sweet corn cake (pork). The tostada was also delish! We had ordered 2 pieces... More

I ordered for 5-6 people via phone and picked it up. After reaching our respective office, we realized that cilantro sauce we ordered was missing. One of our colleague didn't get fried plantain for tostado. Food was very interesting and delicious. We will visit this place again but next time we will check before we leave. We do understand that... More
