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

I have yet to be disappointed. I have trouble trying things other than the amazing empanadas, but branch out! Wait time is rarely short, but just try to hit it off-peak and you'll be fine.

I ordered the Cuban sandwich and a mango drink, my wife had the Venezuelan platter and a different juice. She was quite pleased with her dish. Mine would have been decent if it hadn't been for the absolutely inedible ham (supposedly jamón serrano, but having spent years in Latin America and Spain this is not what I would call jamón... More

The food at El Arepazo is wonderful - you can order just about anything on the menu and be certain that the quality will be perfect. That good quality makes the lines long at lunchtime, which is completely understandable. What is not understandable, however, is the amount of time it takes to get food once the order has been placed... More
