    Lots of delicious choices :) easy and quick! Stopped here before heading back to airport to return home! We got the #12! I didn't love the plantain but my husband did :)

    This place is great! Yummy comfort food and completely unpretentious about it! Try the cilantro garlic sauce on your arepa...😀. I have celiacs and didn't have a problem at all 😀

    The food is very good here and extremely cost-effective, each Arepas must weigh half a pound but the arepas itself is light and surprisingly delicate. The staff is well informed about celiac and darrned near everything on the menu is safe. I had a chicken and a beef arepas and shared an order of plantains with my brother. The plantains were done perfectly; soft and tender but not gooey and overcooked.

    This is my new absolutely favorite restaurant in all of Vegas! The flavors of this Gluten free yumminess is beyond what I expected. It was so great that ordered more to take home with me. I had the Arepas and Chicken and it was perfection. The staff was so helpful and friendly.

    Amazing arepas. The guy at the counter was very friendly and helpful. He double checked the ingredients on an item for me. I recommend the yummy Sugar Cane and Lime juice. I did not get sick. I would definitely go back next time I am in Vegas.

    Though I was bummed that the cachapas, empanadas, and fried plantains aren't gf, I was pleased that most of the arepas are gf. The guy who took my order was very friendly and knew exactly which items were safe for me to eat. I didn't even have to ask about the shared fryer for the fried plantains, he just told me....I've NEVER had that happen before, I always have to ask a bunch of questions that make me feel like an interrogator. So though the Pabellon and Reina Pepiada rated about 4-4.5 stars for me, the service was definitely 5 star. The sugar cane & lime drink was also really good. I didn't have any cross contamination symptoms (when it happens, I definitely know a few hours later) I will definitely go back and try the other gf arepas.

    Very good! The cheese arepas were by far the best. The sauces served with it were pretty great too. Was not a fan of the chicken, it was missing something. It was by my hotel so I visited at least 5 times on my short trip. Not much gluten-free at the end of the strip before hitting downtown, so this was a great meal/snack place for me.

    An arepa is a flat, round, and soft patty made out of cornmeal, which is grilled, and is stuffed with a variety of hot and cold fillings.  Excellent service great food.
