Does not care about customer service. Poorly trained staff assures service that is not upheld, even with management. They took my money for food that was never received, blamed the costumer & avoided/ minimized staff mistakes. When issue was discussed with store manager, he became...More

Wow. Definitely a must to try anything with fried plantains, the green sauce is AMAZING, you also must try the yuca. Been here several times and the quality is always consistent and food is really good!

This is by far the best Venezuelan meal I’ve had in the US. Where? In Columbus OH, what are the odds... The Pabellón Criollo (picture attached) was sensational, very homemade unique flavor, believe me, I’m from Caracas Venezuela and I travel the world and this...More

My wife, kids, and I had a nice lunch here on a Thursday, and we were not disappointed. My wife had the classic arepa combo with pantains, and I had the llanera with yuch. Everything was fresh and delicious. Our kids are a bit picky...More

When we walked up to El Arepazo, my wife and I thought it looked quaint and unique in its alleyway location, but we had no idea what we were in store for. We sat in a ray of warm sun on the small porch and...More

El Arepazo is a hole in the wall that makes the best--alright, the only arepas I've ever had. Arepas are a Venezuelan and Columbian dish--make of a flat ground corn patty topped with whatever, meat, chicken, cheese, veggies, salsa, often with another patty placed on...More

I've been coming to this place for over 10 years and it's still as fresh and tasty as ever. There are three locations - one downtown, one in German Village and one in Gahanna. The menu represents a delightful take on Venezuelan and Colombian cuisine...More
