  • Use hotel parking lot. It's ok.
  • Small, quaint, loud music, great food; be specific about what you want or you'll receive a different order.
  • Absolutely delicious. Don't be in a hurry because the food is worth the wait. The Arepas and yuca frita is to-die-for and everything is fresh!
  • This place is awesome
  • The Reina Pepeada arepa is my favorite!
  • Don't forget the green salsa! Perfect spicy compliment.
  • The sifrina arepa was awesome, and they have great fried plantains!
  • You have to try the Lomo Borracho. It's excellent. We try DDD restaurants all over the country. This one and Dough Pizzeria in San Antonio Texas are so far at the top of my list.
  • We recommend: Arepa sifrina; JPs Favorite arepa; diputado; pabelln criollo.
  • One of the best unknown places around! Featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives! Raul is awesome! Go for your birthday too if you can.
  • Try the Xingu Black Beer from Brazil - yum!
  • Great Saltenas! It's a tiny place that's always packed. Get there early and avoid the tables by the cold!
  • Very small place. Maybe holds a dozen people. I got there at 7:30 on a Friday night and the expected waitlist time over 90 minutes, so plan accordingly, either with reservations or other options.
  • Order the arepas, try them grilled (instead of fried)
  • I had a chicken sandwich and it was very tasty. No wait at 1pm on a Saturday. Someone noted that it only seats about a dozen but it seats at least 30 inside and there is a patio to add 16 or more
  • Arepas. Get the arepas. Sfrinia and JP's Favorite are top notch.
  • Try the tequenos. My wife is Venezuelan and she say they are the closest thing she has had to the real deal
  • Check out La Caraquena as seen on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives
  • Try the arepa! So DELICIOUS! I like the avocado chicken salad on fried dough. It is also a fun place to eat outdoors. You can also order to takeout since it gets crowded and seating is limited.
  • They have everything south of the border, including a variety of vegetarian fare. Guy found a taste of every Latin country, including amazing arepas stuffed so big they resemble overflowing clamshells
