Had an Arepa reina pepiada...not at all venezuelan. However my friend liked it. Was happy to get a Maltin Polar...used to drink it as a kid

Love the menu and prices try everyhting! You will have to make more than one trip portions are big even though they don't look like it! Parking can be a pain but worth the wait!

Being a native Venezuelan, I was disappointed in the quality of the food. I tried the pork patacon, arepa carne mechada , tequenos, arepa de queso and an empanada de cazon. All lacked the "venezuelan" seasoning and flavor and the quality of the meat and cheese was definitely not authentic. In Venezuela, we use "queso de mano" as our cheese. It could not be compared to the type of cheese this restaurant uses. The empanada de cazon was the only dish that I would recommend. This restaurant is located in the Dykman area, therefore it caters to its Dominican neighbors lacking the authentic Venezuelan flavor it should have. If any Venezuelans are interested, I recommend Caracas Arepas Bar in the lower east side of New York City. This restaurant uses the correct cheeses and even has "El Pabellon" as a main dish. Try it and compare, I think and guarantee that you will agree with me. Happy MANGIA !

If you don't mind a little heart attack potential in your diet, this place will rock your world! (There's also a sister store on Briadway in the 17o's called Patacon Con To' that's equally good.) Try everything once until you find the flavors and textures that you prefer. The yoyo with shredded beef is my favorite. The empanadas provide a REALLY cheap snack or meal in a pinch. The service is quick and efficient. If, however, you are looking for ambience or friendly service or you are a health nut, this is not the place for you.

I have become so addicted to this place! I love especially the Arepa Reina but the tocuchos and pepitos are also really good. I've only tried the pernil and pollo fillings but the way they cook their meat is really amazing. The pork has to be slow roasted or something b/c it's always really moist! I eat here at least once a week and often will stop by to just get a toqueno before heading to class. I wish they delivered but it's def worth the walk to get the food. I don't speak spanish but it's never been an issue when ordering and the staff are really nice. They're always busy no matter what time of day it is which sucks as a customer but just goes to show how good they are!

The food in this place is amazing, the price even better. I love the atmosphere being from the neighborhood I always run into someone I know. Only tiny downside it's the sitting area,the place is always packed but Service is very speedy. Over all this Venezuelan delight is superb.

There are not many Venezuelan eatery in NYC more over in Washington Heights/Inwood Hispanic mecca. But this place is open 23 hours, and no matter what time you go it is packed which means only one this the food is GREAT. The prices are dirt cheap for the fill you are gonna get. They make the food in front of you it is fresh and nice. If you get a bench, you hit the jackpot because you get to eat it steaming hot. My fav is the yoyo and the patacon which is a yellow and later green plantain sandwich. ENJOY!!!
