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

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
