Went for lunch today! It's similar to chipotle style. Definitely check out the menu before getting in line to order if you're a newbie. Food is phenomenal! 👌🏼

This is an example of doing one thing and doing it well: arepas, which are delicious corn tortillas filled with a variety of ingredients to your specifications. It is no-frills, darn good eating at an excellent value. You will come back again and again.

My oldest daughter and my brother-in-law have ranted about the food at Guasaca, so I took my youngest daughter for dinner. We arrived around 8:20 PM and the place had a lot of other customers eating in the restaurant. We went through the line to place our orders. Each order is assembled as you select the ingredients you want. This... More

A must try Mexican restaurant. It has a chipotle, build your dish type of feel. I had the arepa, which was a little messy, but nothing a fork in the end couldn't handle. Had the vegetarian arepa with the coleslaw which I asked to skip on but she added it and I had no complaints. Overall delicious, really you must... More

All of the food is really amazing. I ordered two signature alepas and really only should have ordered one! Way too much to eat. Plus, I had chips and guasaca; which is not to be missed! Go with friends and share; sample it all! Go there hungry!

Have been here several times. Food is always good. Today I got an arepa with grilled chicken, white cheese, black beans, and plaintains. Yummy! Staff was friendly and efficient. I love the price as well. I highly recommend.

The food is very delicious. The arepas are yellow or white corn pockets filled with a choice of different meats and vegetables. You also have the choice of a mix of the meats and vegetables in a bowl or in a bowl over lettuce.
