“Great place to take visitors!”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

Arepa is by far one of the most traditional "Paisa meals". Sometimes explaining the flavor, consistency and versatility of this corn made flatbread becomes almost impossible unless it is experienced first hand.

J&C offers a wide variety of arepas that will make anyone lick their fingers! Starting with the typical "arepa con queso" to the more international Peruvian variety, J&C is for sure one of the places any tourist visiting Medellin should stop by.

PS: One of their best locations is at "Centro Comercial el Tesoro". The views of the city are breathtaking and will make you enjoy your arepa even more!

“Gourmet Arepas with Huge Menu”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

The branch of J&C Delicias next to Oviedo Mall recently moved across the street to a spanking new location in the mall across the street, with indoor/outdoor seating and a balcony with bar. This popular chain started in the Laureles neighborhood in 1980 with 5 other locations in neighborhoods and malls around town.

Appetizers range from ceviche to snack size arepas and garlic mushroom casserole.

J&C makes claim to the "best arepas of all." Its broad menu include the ubiquitous area in its many forms and varieties with chicken, beef, pork, tuna and shrimp and pizza styles served in variety sauces such as curry, bechamel, creole, Teriyaki and seafood (as appropriate) in medium or "traditional" sizes.

No less than a dozen pasta dishes are offered, including spaghetti, ravioli, lasagne, penne and fettuccine in styles such as caramel, Romano, Bolognese, Carbonara and Alfredo.

For those seeking to escape regular paisa fare, there are 8 varieties of hamburgers in various guises. The six sandwiches offered lean toward the normal chicken, ham and cheese (mozzarella is the norm).

Beers are served frosty cold, but softdrinks arrive warm with a glass of ice.

If you have room for dessert, 12 are offered ranging from Sundaes (with rich, creamy ice cream), chocolate cake, Caramel Flan, Oreo or red fruit cheesecake or Lemon Mousse.

Mini-hamburgers and chicken nuggets are on the Children's Menu.

Prices range between $7 and $12, with ample portions. Pickles and onions are condiments on every table. Service is friendly and efficient. Perimeter seating on the restaurant fringe is outdoors (although the whole place is in the open air), prized by many, but can be in direct sun and windy at times.

“Good food but poor service”
Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

We visited this place in Florida Mall. The place was recently opened, and it seems that the waitress was a rooky. She took more than 20 mins to take the order ( we were around 20) and the food was served about 40 to 50 minutes later. We ordered some hamburguers and the bread was COLD!!!
i will never come back to this place... Maybe to the ones in other locations of the city.

A good selection of food on their menu. Everything we had was delicious and the portions were nice and big. Prices were reasonable for the amount of food.

“Nice arepas and shakes”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

J&C Delicias can be found all over Medellin. The offer a lot of dinner or lunch options. They have some wonderful Colombian arepas with many toppings. Choose the small size, even that's like too much to eat! They also have very nice shakes. The restaurants are very popular and nearly always full, but they service is quite good nonetheless.
