Good food and really good service! We had to wait a while for our table as it was a busy Friday night, but service was still excellent. Food was quite good although the bread was a bit hard

We found Guasaca when my mom was at Rex Hospital and we were looking for something quick for lunch. Their specialty is arepas, which are delicious corn cakes from Venezuela that they split and fill similar to a pita, but they fill it with meat, black beans, cheese, rice, and pico.. The guasaca is a side dish similar to guacamole... More

Just visited Guasaca with co-workers today. I got a bowl with rice, chicken, black beans, lettuce, pico, cheese and it was delicious! Fresh and good. The prices are great for the portion size and quality of food. Awesome lunch!

We visited on a Friday, busy night. The selection was limited. It sports itself as Venezuelan but did not have or know about Malta (well known in Venz). The food was tasty but prepared on an assembly line. The price was attractive and commensurate with the atmosphere and proportion.

Amazing quick lunch that my colleagues and I ate. Never eaten here before and the staff was very helpful and let us sample the sauces.

This is a fun place to visit. You stand in line and ask for the fillings of your choice to a bland, unsweet, fritter called "arepa" in Spanish speaking countries like Colombia. The fillings are great, abundant and satisfying (e.g., steak, shrimp, etc.). If you want a beer, you go out the back and visit a place next door that... More

Everything is fresh and lots of flavor. My 6 year old gobbled down a chicken,plantain, caramelized onions with white cheese and sour cream arepa! I had the salad which I think is the better method of consumption with a fork. Otherwise, it is quite messy. Delicious but messy!

The line appeared long, but moved very quickly! The food was delicious and had great quality. The cilantro sauce was superb! The atmosphere was inviting. We sat outside and enjoyed the shade from their patio as well as quiet music from inside the restaurant. I enjoyed a bowl that was absolutely wonderful! My fiancé enjoyed the arepas and couldn't stop... More
