    OMG , it was great . My mother always bought me food , but she never took me there. The center is so beautiful I felt like I was in Europe lol , but the food is excellent. The lines are okay but worth

    Unique twist to cultural cuisine. With the dining casual style of Moe's, this Venezuelan grill serves amazing portions of arepas, Guasaca guacamole + salad/bowl options. Added bonus: affordable!

    You must try their Arepas if you're in the area. Grilled chicken & guasaca sauce is perfect. Or just make your own!

    I easily eat here once a week. It's easy not to get bored with all the combination options of fresh meat and veggies. Love the cilantro sauce on anything!

    Vegetarian arepa with plantains and Guasaca sauce. Quick, light and delicious. If it's nice out, sit outside and grab a beer from Bottle Revolution.

    Everything here is delicious. Also, while it may be tempting, never remove your Arepa from the pocket-bag. It'll end up all over your pants.

    Try one of the arepas! I like them but always get a brown rice bowl with plantains and steak. I get the guasaca to put on top.

    Although the prices are extremely low, don't let that fool you into thinking you need more than one. Super dense and yummy.

    Guasaca, adds but a rather unique lunch option for Raleigh: Guasaca appears to be the only restaurant in Raleigh that serves arepas. Read more

    Very friendly staff, good prices, clean inside. The chips are very salty and all the sauces were too sweet for my taste. Interesting flavors though.
