We went to an exhibit at the Bowers Museum, about 2 miles north of this place. We were looking for a place for a late lunch. This place was an excellent choice. We had never had Venezuelan food. The servers were so helpful. And the food was incredible. We tried 2 different arepas, 1 pork and 1 beef. The pork... More

Went here today for a quick lunch. I've never had Venezuelan food before but it was relish! Reasonably priced. Service was quick and efficient since we were on a lunch break! Family owned business with a friendly staff!

I was stuck in the jury assembly room for a day. When they gave us over 90 minutes for lunch why would I eat in the court house cafe? I found Mil Jugos using Google Maps and walked the 12 minutes or so to the restaurant. A chance to try Venezuelan food. The food and service was good. Its fast... More

This is our favorite place in Santa Ana, and, with all the new restaurants around lately, that is saying something! I love the arepa asado (the meat is almost like picadillo), plantains, black beans, and the jugo mamey here. Everything I've tried has been really fresh & good, but those are my favs. The chachapas are also good, but the... More

It's hard to find a Gluten Free restaurant in Santa Ana. Mil Jugos is it! Loved the split pea soup, and of course the arepas were tasty. They use high quality, premium meats (chicken breast , beef) and remove the fat. Definitely a favorite when in Santa Ana.

I've been here a few times now over the years. I recently ordered the asada arepa with cheese and the carne mechada arepa. Arepas are like hot corn cake sandwiches with different kinds of fillings.The arepas can be a bit pricy ranging from $4-$5 for one and if you want to add cheese, avocado or plantains, its gonna cost you...

My favorite: Empanada, corn pancake, guanabana juice and don"t forget the dessert. Portion look small, but you won't leave there hungry.

So there really are not any Venezuelan restaurants anywhere in the OC and the ONE in LA sucks... It is more Puerto Rican. Not this place, this place is so Venezuelan it is to die for. We come for all mine and my Mom's birthday's and Mother's Day so we will be back again soon. Warm some errapas for us... More
