This was my first visit, and I was impressed. It is smaller inside, with a number of 4 top tables and a number of tables next to a longer bench that can be set up for larger parties. There is also a nice bar area, as well. There were some good happy hour specials, and drink prices were very reasonable... More

My husband and I have been here a couple of times, and we love it. The arepas, which are hard to find, are excellent. I recommend going during happy hour and taking advantage of the deals, even though the restaurant isn't pricey to begin with. My only complaint is it's noisy in the restaurant, so if you're looking for a... More

When confronted with a flight delay long before I went to the airport, I looked up and found this great little treasure of a restaurant to try vs. attempting to just settle for another airport meal.

Arepazo is a great restaurant near the Main Street in Gahanna. The staff is very friendly and happy to adjust menu items as needed. The food is delicious and priced appropriately.

Always amazing. Try the Empenaditas! Great atmosphere, great service, and always amazing food. Great authentic taste of South America. A "must try" for anyone in Gahanna.

This restaurant is walking distance from our office and it offers tasty and filling fare. The fish tacos are SUPERB! You will not go wrong with the burrito either. We've been there many times and have always enjoyed the food. Service is also excellent and the prices are reasonable.

I have frequented Arepazo for several years. We always have a great meal there. I recently took a friend to lunch there. She had never been there. We both had great lunch meals on the nice small patio. The corncakes were her favorite and I always love the Patacon.

Went for Dinner since I landed late....and OMG; the food is amazing! Price vs. quantity is perfect, the flavors was amazing. Parking wasn't bad and they do have patio seating.

My wife and daughter love this place. The food is pretty good but the dining area has nothing to deaden the roar of the patrons talking. This was lunchtime so it wasn't a loud, drinking crowd. I leave with a head ache. The owners need to invest a few bucks on some panels to control the noise.
