It is rare to find empanadas and fried plantains that are completely gluten-free. You have no worries here because the whole restaurant is 100% gluten-free. Try the green garlic sauce on everything. It's delicious.

Great arepas and plates. Were very attentive about my heavy dairy sensitivity too.

Everything is gluten free. Didn’t get sick and the food is so damn good! I had the white corn arepa with pulled pork and some yuca garlic fries. You order at the counter and they give you a number so they can bring it out to your table. Seriously! Try this place out!

My son enjoyed this stop and the food was great! He ate the empanadas & an arepa both delicious. He is celiac so this was nice for us not to worry about him getting something from cross contamination because all is gluten free!!

Delicious and 100% GF! A go-to when I’m ordering in. Edit: I’ve been eating here for months and have gotten sick a few times after. Starting to wonder if perhaps there’s cross contamination?

As a sensitive celiac it's awesome to eat someplace that's 100% safe. The food is delicious, it's a great value and it's nice to have an entire menu of tasty options. It's the kind of place where you don't notice or miss the gluten because it's all inherently gluten free. Great for families and easy pick up for take out.

Amazing 100% gluten free food! My family wanted to try something new before going to the theater and stopped in here as I have celiac and their 100% gluten free restaurant looked great. I got the pulled pork arepa which was delicious, just the right mix of juicy meat, sauces, and avocado. It does have a little kick to it but the avocado helps. My family enjoyed their beef and chicken arepas as well. For dessert we opted for the yuca beignets which were an absolute delight - definitely a different texture than normal ones since they’re not made with flour, but they had just the right balance of sweetness and savory flavors and were piping hot. The sauce that comes with them is lovely. Would definitely recommend for those following a gluten free diet & everyone who enjoys yummy food!

Shared 3 arepas, all were so good. I enjoyed the sweet corn with pulled pork the best. Their sauces had really good flavor and texture.

Arepas and salads were delicious. Staff had good answers to questions about nuts etc. I am a sensitive celiac with other allergies and had no problems here. Plus I could bring non-celiac friends for a casual meal without having to talk about the whole thing.

I have not eaten here myself and was super excited by the menu. The main page of their website says naturally gluten free; however when you click on the allergen menu and check gluten, there is a disclaimer and terms you have to agree to where they say they cannot claim there food is free of gluten, etc. If that is their approach, while I appreciate their honesty, it should be regarded as a place with a gluten free menu and not a designated gluten free facility.

A must! I got the vegan arepa and garlic yucca fries. It was a Kong day at a work conference so I got the food to go to have back at my hotel. I ended you knocking out and not eating the food fresh/hot. I ended up having it for breakfast cold and even under those conditions it was absolutely delicious. Highly recommend.

A-MAZ-ING! The food was great and the service was good. I recommend the cachapa with beef, pork, or chicken which was delicious. I was skeptical to try the food (I was afraid of cross contamination) but it turned out amazing! Highly recommend!

Never had a Venezuelan food, but what a nice surprise! Had pulled pork arepa, beef arepa, spicy chicken arepa, yucca fries, and crispy chicken plato. They were all so delicious, fresh, and each dish had unique and well thought through complex taste. Crispy chicken was fried so well. The little pickle cup that came with the trio sampler was so delicious too... thank you for providing such delicious safe food!!!

A 100% gluten free facility that didn’t have to change anything to have it this way? Their food is naturally gluten free and delicious! They were busy the entire time we were there. Seating is limited so plan to sit with others. We had the yuca fries, sweet plantains, and the yellow corn arepas with shredded beef. The yellow corn is sweeter than the white. Everything was delicious!

Great food and such a relief to have a totally GF restaurant! i have eaten here 3x and haven't gotten sick. The cachapas and the coconut drink are my favorites. Prices are on the high side for casual dining, so this is a "treat" and not a regular stop for me. The restaurant space is small and can be crowded at times, but overall it's a great place!
