Have been here a couple of times for arepas. They beat any I have ever had. Have a wide variety and never got a miss. Cozy and enjoyable way to relax and eat. Some of the great street food they have in other countries.

Love their stuffed arepas. They seem to have moved location and are working out the kinks. It wasn't well marked or obvious that it was open for business and we almost gave up. Luckily, a young man who was sitting at what must be their...More

Wow! This restaurant was excellent. Stopped here for lunch after a visit to the PA State Capital. The arepas were fresh and tasty - crisp on the outside, soft and creamy on the inside. For $10, you get 3 filled arepas. There are many choices...More

The food here is absolutely amazing. In my opinion, it's the best restaurant in downtown Harrisburg. It's also very vegetarian-friendly, which I always appreciate. (For vegetarians- try the Platano Relleno Vegetariano-- it's delicious!)

Great find on Second St. A group of 6 of us shared fried cheese and different sliders. The sliders were awesome, highly recommend the "domino." Very reasonably priced and is BYOB, not to worry if you forget a beverage Anothony's right down the street offers...More

I have actually lived in Venezuela before and was so excited when Arepa City came to Harrisburg several years ago. Venezuelan cuisine is incredible and this restaurant does not disappoint, plus it's such a nice change from the numerous, boring, fried-bar-food-crap that seems to overwhelm...More

Had the opportunity to join friends here last week. After reading a few reviews I was a bit concerned. While the entrance and restaurant does not have the best appearance, mostly because of the ceiling and long dinning area, the food itself was great. All...More
