I ordered 2 arepas and a fresh mango juice. Such large portions! I had lots of leftovers. The vegan mushroom and broccoli was soooo good! The bean and cheese was just okay from delivery. I was able to indicate allergies on my order. No reactions.

Delicious. We tried their Empanada, sweet corn pancakes and Arepas. It's all very good. My spouse is celiac and we feel super safe here. Highly recommended. We went to their new Lakeview location.

I’ve gotten take out from this place several times and it’s always been great. I usually get the pabellon arepa or empanada. The empanadas in particular are excellent! Delicious dough that happens to be GF. Their menu is well marked. The only thing is that I can’t say whether they have a dedicated fryer or if gluten containing items are fried in the same oil.
