This was my first time having an Arepa, i went with the slow cooked beef, it was really good. I also love this location, it’s a food market/food court and the restaurants are in re-purposed shipping containers. Very cool atmosphere, ideal for casual dinning with...More

This place was on our short list for the time we were in Denver and it did not disappoint! Great food, ridiculous portions, and super helpful service for what amounts to an indoor food truck. 10 out of 10.

We ordered a beef/plantain arepa and a reina pepiada (chicken with avocado). They were so good! We really enjoyed the flavor of both. They were really big- one was plenty! They're $10, which I felt was expensive, but the size made it worth it. I...More

Aside from a little too much munster cheese, this arepa was just so good. The beef was tender and flavorful. The plantain was ripe and cooked to perfection. The avocado was fresh. The sauce was flavorful. It was a delight to eat. Tried out this...More

We go to Quiero Arepas whenever we find ourselves in the Highlands neighborhood, and we took visiting family there (every food allergy you can imagine), and 8 of us were able to happily enjoy the arepas!

The service was good, so was the food. Was it great/awesome? No. Why? They should NOT use mozzarella since there is nothing Venezuelan about that, I wanted queso blanco because mozzarella is not salty enough. It would be amazing if they sold tequeños with the...More

Went to Avanti specifically for Quiero Arepas. The location is prime. The atmosphere is buzzing and the food choices at Avanti seem varied and top notch. My friend and I wanted Cuban food and struggled to find an open restaurant on a Sunday but Quiero...More

I went to Quiero Arepas for lunch with a friend. It is in Avanti Food & Beverage, which is a really awesome concept. We decided to split two Arepas, the Queso Arepa and the Pollo Guisado Arepa. These were both filled with flavor, one might...More

We make hand crafted Venezuelan Arepas. Made from corn meal, water and salt, the arepa is formed into a patty, grilled, baked, split open and stuffed with all natural and local ingredients. Our menu is 100% GLUTEN FREE & we are the 1st truck in the nation to be certified gluten free. The arepa is the daily bread of Venezuela. We are recreating our childhood memories and sharing the experience with our guests.
