I really really enjoyed the basil & tomato Arepas I just added asada bc I like my meat, and it was so yummy! The corn bun won me over. I also had a specialty Jugos - I chose guava. Highly... More

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

After seeing good reviews online we decided to try out Mil Jugos but unfortunately left disappointed and wondering how it got so many good reviews. Right off the bat, parking in Downtown Santa Ana is not only difficult but expensive, fortunately there's a parking structure right in front of Mil Jugos. The actual restaurant is small but nice, tons of... More

impressed with the Cachapas con queso, empanadas, and the passion fruit juice. I bought a couple of hallacas to eat at home, they were very good too. As a traditional dish for this time of the year, it was a great discovery. I just wish they would be open later during the day so I could stop for dinner some... More

We visited Mil Jugos for a late lunch to try it out based on a comment by a latino friend of a Venezuelan restaurant in Santa Ana. Since we are from Venezuela we were curious about such a restaurant in Southern California. Bottom line, the food listed on the menu have the names of Venezuelan dishes (many types of arepas,...
