A little difficult to find but more than worth it. The Venezuelan platter was to die for: fried plantains, frijoles con arroz, and your choice of meat. My husband had the patacón with tilapia. Inexpensive & delicious. The cilantro sauce was fantastic..I could have drank it.

Give it a chance as you will not be disappointed! The stuffed arepas are to die for, specially with their extra delicious cilantro sauce!

What a relief to have Venezuelan and Colombian food as an oasis in the middle of a Subway desert. Downtown Columbus has turned into a sandwich and pizza bazaar, it seems. Thank goodness for El Arepazo's arrival a few years ago: it kept the city's lunchtime cuisine from turning into a bland nightmare and, I think, propped the door open... More

This place is awesome. Worth the wait. Completely worth every penny! Love the steak, black bean, and avacado salad. Doesn't feel like cheating on my diet and tastes amazing. I have yet to have anything that hasn't been amazing. Very small inside so either get there early, or get takeout.

Authentic south american food with strong Venezuelan influences. Only opens for lunch and serves very good empanadas. Also don't miss out on the patacons, they are very good.

I've only been to the restaurant in Gahanna and absolutely love it. I've been there twice now and both times I can't wait to get back. My fav apps are the empanaditas, and croquetas. I've tried their Bandeja Paisa, Pabellon, and one of their beef dishes I forget their name. Amazing flavors all around, nice portions. Their tres leches dessert... More

I've had burritos here before, which are outstanding, but you must try the Cuban sandwich. Fantastic toasted bread, juicy pulled pork, spicy ham, garlic mayo, mustard and pickles. Awesome. Enjoy this with a couple Estrellas and you're all set. It also comes with some of the best fries I've had in Columbus. If you're going for lunch during the week... More

Surprised to find this in Columbus, OH. Great Latin food and quick too. This place is small so go during off hours for a plce to spread out and chow down. It was walking distance from the hotel and a little hard to find, but just go. Very good, very filling, very good choice.

This is a hole in the wall. Don't expect a five star dining experience. You order at the counter and the food is delivered to the table. Soft drinks are self serve from the Coke machine. Small tables only, so we had to put two tables together to accommodate our family of five. The one reason to come here is... More
