“Meat wasn't as fresh as it should've been :(”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2013

We got there at 5pm and I'm not sure if the pork I had was left from lunch, it just didn't seem fresh. Maybe because it wasn't busy they can't rotate it enough. There were only 2 pitas in the warmer when we got there, not sure how long they were out :(

“Great Venezuelan Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2013

Read an article about this place and decided to try it. We were very impressed. This was our first time eating this type of food, and it was great. It's like a thick corn pita that is chewy like an English muffin. They give you several choices of meat and really pile it on. It is truly a meal. Plantains are 75 cents extra and well worth it. Wednesdays are buy-one-get-one free, and an excellent deal. If you want something different that is really good, give this place a try.

“Unique food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2012

I have been to Krispy Arepas several times and have always enjoyed it. Never had an arepa before I came here. They are a little messy, but worth the trouble. The green sauce is incredibly garlicky, which I love. Because of the way they are put together, service can take a few minutes if there is a line. Well worth it, though

“Cheap, great and handy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2012

This place sells one thing: arepas. Arepas are Latin American (Venezuelan, to be exact) little corn muffins (think English muffin, made with corn) that are stuffed with various items, meat or veggie based, and topped with standard toppings you would expect in the Latin American cuisine, to produce a delicious little meal. You can get chicken, beef, pork, tofu (I believe) and the best, chicken with avocado. For toppings, you can pick cheese (queso blanco/fresco or mozzarella, cheddar) and pico or other items. Sauces are amazing, the garlic dill sauce is amazing and the huacasaca (spelling most likely wrong) is also great. On top of everything, you get a Andes mint and, on Wednesday, you can enjoy half priced arepas from an already acceptable price of 4.75 to 6 dollars. Highly recommended, this little shop has been doing good and it is great to see.

“Delicious!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2012 via mobile

Was so good that I went there twice in one day. This fast food restaurant is delicious and will leave you stuffed! I went on wednesday where they have a deal for half off Arepas, which is awesome, and I've been hooked ever since.
