Absolutely delicious arepas and empanadas, though a little pricey and I wish their delivery minimum was lower. I would highly recommend the pabellon and pernil empanadas and the carne mechada empanada. Also, definitely get all of the sauces for dipping! The delivery was a bit slow, but understandable because they make everything fresh and from scratch. Only other complaint is that the empanadas were a little too greasy and the cheese empanada was super sweet and tasted like dessert. Overall, I was really pleased and 2 areas and 1 empanada was a ton of food for one person.

I love, love, love this place. The wait is always a bit long, but the food is always great. I love the $12.50 Pabellon meal. It's very filling and eternally delicious. If the food weren't so expensive, I'd eat it more often. But the fact that I don't get to eat it all the time makes it that much better.

I LOVE Arepera Guacuco !! Delivery is always faster than it says it will be. Order is always correct. Most of all their food is AMAZING!! Best food in Brooklyn. Dining-in is a great option, too. Best service. Great people. Great food.

PS- Free Venezuela!!

Love this place! Very friendly service, on the phone and at the restaurant. Consistently good,with fresh ingredients. I almost exclusively get the vegetariana arepa with rice and beans every time. The sauces are all tasty, too.

Food is excellent good tasting and not greasy like most other Spanish restaurants around (I'm Dominican I would know). I had the Pabellon Criollo which was awesome! Will def be back again.

It took ordering from here a few times for it to grow on me because the first time the food was a little cold, but I'm now a fan. Love the pernil arepa (although it is a bit greasy)! Soooo good. My wife has ordered the fish entree, which she also thoroughly enjoys. For the neighborhood, this is one of the pricier options, but it's still not bad at all for a night in. Yes, there are less expensive delivery options, but not of this caliber and certainly not this cuisine.

Food was really tasty and the arepas were nice and toasted not soggy like in other places I have ordered from. Will be ordering again in the future. The food came much sooner than it was indicated......I Keep ordering from here because the food is good and today the fastest delivery time ever!!!!!!! YOU GO GUACUCO!!!!!!!!!!

Don't think, just eat here. It's GLORIOUS. Ask for all three of the sauces - each is as wild and loaded with deliciousness as the next. Easily my favorite place on Seamless. And naturally wheat-free, which - trust me - is good news. Ordering from here was easily the best decision I've ever made, and I'm married with kids.

Fantastic arepa. They're not giant, by any means, but certainly filling. The guasacaca is awesome and I was glad I ordered a few extra. My only caution is that the Coke bottles are only 8oz (though they are the real sugar Coke) and not 12oz. The order was also almost 40 minutes faster than expected.

My favotites are Arepa Pabellon and the Arepitas Halley. This last time I ordered the Pernil and it was delicious. The pork was so flavorful and well seasoned!! Highly recommend them. The Plato pabellon is also delicious, and a great option if you crave a rice platter.

Arepera Guacuco is a Venezuelan restaurant in Bushwick, Brooklyn. "Arepera" Means "a place that sells arepas, " and Guacuco is the name of a beach in Venezuela where owner Leonardo Molina was born. His mother Carmen is cooking the food at this restaurant, and her arepas are delicious. Arepas are lightly-fried corn patties that are split open and filled with cheese, vegetables or meat. Carmens secret is that she makes her arepas super fresh: When she sees a customer walk in the door, she starts making the patties from cornmeal, salt and water. She pats them into shape, fries them on a griddle with a bit of oil, and finishes them in the oven. Theres beer and wine on this menu, but a more memorable drink is the papelón con límon, a traditional Venezuelan limeade spiked with molasses. Arepera Guacuco is at 44 Irving Avenue at Troutman Street in Bushwick.
