Great Resturant. Great Food.

Javi Oliu

Fantastic place! Went with my girlfriend and we were greeted immediately when we walked in. The staff was extremely friendly and provided excellent service. The food was amazing! I had an empanada de pollo (chicken) and am arepa de pabellón (shredded beef with plantains and black beans). If you've never had Venezuelan food, I'd recommend having an arepa or an empanada. If you like traditional dishes, then try the pabellón criollo. All in all can't go wrong ordering!

Great service. Very tasty arepas and empanadas to die for. Sadly they run out on Tuesdays due their special. Very kind people. Seems mostly alone but the food is fantastic. I have brought family one by one and all of them love it. No alcohol and a definite family place.

Great food! Great people

Cheryl Tischler

I love this restaurant. It is small but clean and nicely decorated. The food is always fresh and delicious. The staff is friendly and helpful. Not everyone understands English but this is nothing because the food and atmosphere are great. The arepas are delicious but the meals are wonderful as well.

Joe D

Wow! Delicious! Great food and service, will ddefinitely be back soon

Jonathan Nyborg

Cant say enough good things about this restaurant, I'm recommending them constantly. Give them a try if you have not already, they deserve to be far more busy than they are.

Aberto Rivera

The Arepas are great seating is limited all the dishes they brought out looked delicious definitely going to try more things on the menu

Andrea Lucas

If you like Venezuelan food, this is a great place to try. All the fixings you could want - arepas, tequenos [excellent], pepitos, tres leches, and drinks, and good holiday menu for christmas. Family owned catering business, nice owners who will always greet you like family. The cons - it can get slammed at certain times, especially on the weekend, and your order is bound to get messed up. I also catered a birthday, about $300 worth of appetizers, and they showed up well over an hour late after party started. I still occasionally go, because I still enjoy the food. There tequenos are the best in the dc metro area hands down

M Patterson

Delicious arepas, and phenomenal serving size. Plus very kind wait staff.

Richard Allen

Amazing food, great service. Authentic arepas. Must-try flan. Last time I was in there they looked like they were expanding next door and I'm very happy for their success!

Lowee Cripps

Wonderful food!

Francisco Garcia Pineda

Being here for the first time and I'm glad we found it! Food was good, drinks were refreshing and the service was amazing. Friendly folks and they take time to make sure everything is well and you feel at home. We will for sure come back.

Wyatt Clark

Been going here for years, fast, clean, excellent food.

Chris Lutyk

Best Salmon! Whenever I get a chance I will get this delicious dish... and I am not one who loves salmon as my fish choice but the seasoning and preparation they do is superb!

Daniella Brown

I have gone here several times. I love their arepas.


Food is absolutely incredible -- best Venezuelan I've had. Service is hit or miss -- first time we went the service was very fast and the waitress checked on us often, the second visit the waitress forgot to bring out the food for one member of our party and only checked on us once. The food still came out quickly but getting the check or anything from the waitress was slow.

Andrew Brogdon

Had a delicious lunch of shredded beef, arepas, tostones, and empanadas here that was prepared and served by some of the friendliest people I've met in a while. I doubt that I could recommend this place enough.

Juan P

Great Food and Service!

ryan kosley

Amazing food, small comfy place, family owned and home made food. Excellent place to go eat.

Andres V

Good authentic venezuelan fare. Food is tasty but pricey! Arepas are corn dough pancakes that are grilled or pan fried and topped with cheese. The shredded beef is good but the best is the plain cheese (traditional).

Joy Rekas

Amazing food! Super fast service! Great prices! I highly recommend this place!


Excellent food. Fresh made. Very friendly. My favorite is Pepito and Cuban sandwich.

Monika Schoen

Great place with great good not from VA but hope to come back!!


Try their Triple appetizers.

Ed Ford

Food is delicious. Small place, not too fancy but definitely worth a visit.

Jonathan Hudgins

Excellent! We experienced excellent food and service. Overall it was an excellent experience.

Mai Abdelaziz

Their food is absolutely incredible and the owner is such a warm, welcoming person! Highly recommended!

Jacqueline Cruz

My coworkers and I have periodically ordered from Arepas Capitol and their food is always tasty & fulfilling! However, they are VERY stingy with giving out their house white sauce. An old location associated to them called Bee's arepas was more willing to give out at least 1 sauce per Arepa. I just ordered 13 arepas this time and when we asked for sauce the woman attending us looked very bothered at our request. We hope to see some changes to this in the near future. As we are returning customers and we enjoy the food. She only ended up giving us three small containers for our 13 arepas.

Stacie Peyton

So...! Let me say, the Beef Pepito (similar to a sub) was flavor packed and unique...I enjoyed it. Now, overall the food was not presented well in its packaging. It wasn’t messy or anything, but the french fries were packaged with ketchup packets right on top (who knows if they are clean or not...sitting on top of food you put in your stomach?). I also had a Carne (beef) Empanada which was not what I expected as far as shredded meat...and the flavor was lacking for me. I would return here to explore the menu a bit, but they should change a couple of things. I should also mention that they should consider cleaning up the front counter a bit where you place your order. It is very disorderly and it had wet spots (miniature puddles) on it while I was signing my receipt, and they also allowed dishes to pile up right on top of the counter while another gentlemen was placing his order. That’s not very appetizing for a person to order food while hovering over dirty, used dishes...stacked high at that!

Tim Fitzgerald

Great flavor! So good.

Gabriela Farinas

Owner on the house..excellent Venezuelan food

Mary Sanders

Great food and great services. I will definitely be coming back.

Mario Perez

Me and my daughter love this place, the arepas are amazing. The desserts are delicious too.

Deidre O'Neill

Great service!! True and Aunthentic!!

Spanish With Andrews Páez

This place makes me feel close to home. The staff is really welcoming and the place is very comfortable. Great food. You won’t regret it!

Ian Fuller

Freaky fast with the food. Parilla mixta, beef empanada, and chicken salad arepa were delish. Cozy place, very authentic. Needed my arepa fix and I got it!

Chanel Graham

If you don't know where you're going, you'll likely miss this place. It is a small store front on the end of a strip mall beside an alley. Don't let that deter you, though. The food is great. There are sandwiches, empanadas, and arepas, plus a few chef's special items like ceviche and soup. Hablan Español, si lo necesitas. The service is nice but it will take a while to cook your food. It comes to your table hot, accompanied by any sauces you might need to heat up or compliment your meal. There's an option for carryout, catering, dessert, kids, and salads (but really, why would you).

Louis Rivera

delicious I'll come back

Hansei Kai

Venezuelan food restaurant. They have arepas, tequeños and other Venezuelan dishes. A little pricey though.

Frank Quiles

The food is SOOO good and authentic.

Adrian Reyes

They are the best for arepas and empanadas in the area

Mercidia Macotto

Food is "ok" Something new to try...Arepas. expensive for what you get!

Karl Schneiter

Excellent and authentic! Great service.

kc sm

Food is not so great in my opinion but the waiter was very nice

Ryan Cho

Jessica Weaver

Fantastic little place!

Stacy Dennis

Excellent. Delicious. Great price! Go now! Yummy

Douglas Clark

if you love arepas come here! Good Venezuelan food overall and they cater. and they carry frescolita!

Vichai Cain

Great arepas and fried yuca!


This location has been used for mostly take out with a few tables to eat at in the past. The interior has been updated and more tables have been put inside for dining in. The food and service was good and deserves another visit. The tight space places several seats near the door with no way to control the temperature in the restaurant as people are coming and going. You should give it a try but not on a cold day! 4 stars for food, 2 stars for seating for an average of 3 stars.

Ever Valdez

Fast, and Friendly service and for the speed of service didn't think the food would taste so good. Definitely recommend this place!

Chadwick Yasuda

Love this place. The arepas are tasty and I always get the paella it's just chock full of great seafood. Flan was awesome as a cap to the meal.

Ana Henriquez

Great Venezuelan food! The Arepas are great but the Pastelitos are Delicious


Good customer service, food taste good. Try patacon is realy good

Jay Keeii

Great restaurant my friend recommended me to this place cause his parents are the owners and I have no regrets

Rogers Alexander

Excellent Service....this is a Fine Venezuela Gourmet Restaurant . The food was delicious

Alitcha Jeffers

I love this place. It was a quiet and warm environment. The food was extremely good and well served.

Ivan Pineda

The food is good. The employees are friendly. The only problem is that sometimes you get there and sit for 10 minutes, nobody helps you or anything. It can be annoying but I'm used for this place to usually do this. Other than that, the food is great.

Cristina Alcaraz Hocker

Delicious food, fresh. The owners are lovely and they'll make you feel like a guest honor

A Hernandez

Yummy! Arenas and empanadas are the best!

Pablo V

Adam Jones

Fresh delicious food! Excellent service as well. Try the green avocado cilantro sauce, it's amazing ;)


Very good food, great drinks, cozy and friendly atmosphere. Empanadas are a must try, especially with their cilantro sauce and garlic sauce.

Traci Cosio

Visited for my second time recently, this time for lunch. We ordered the breakfast (beans, carne, eggs, arepas) and 4 empanadas for $10 (on Tuesdays!) Cheese, ground beef, chicken and the beef, plantain and black bean) with a side of fried yucca. So fresh and flavorful! We love the green and the white dipping sauces, too. A little gem here in Woodbridge. We will be back soon and share with our friends.

Lorena Ortega

Excellent traditional Venezuelan food.

Estefany Romero

If I could I wouldn’t even give this place a single star. We had a server who was an older lady it was 7:20 when we walked in I had to ask her if we could order. She took our order and drink order and I specifically said no ice on my drink. Our food came out and we were still waiting for our drinks. She then came with our drinks and I told her politely that I asked for no ice and she replied I didn’t make your drink when yet she handed it to me. So as soon as I walked in I told her I needed an order to go so I had to chase her down again and she told me to hold on as she answered a call on her personal cell phone. So she finally came over and asked for my order and I ordered and then received my order to find out I had no salsa. I asked her for salsa for my to go order and she said you should know the arepas come with no sauce . The WORST experience in my life I am usually a good tipper and she went out her way to make this experience the worst I’ve had. Please dot even waist your money coming here!!

Roger Singh

Great Arepas! So much filling and arepa bread themselves tasted great.

Marvin Rodriguez

Great homemade food! Reccomend to anyone!!!! Friendly Staff!!!

Armin Seferagic

Amazing food and amazing service. Our waiter was very helpful in deciding what to order. You must order the empanadas and the arepas, best I ever had!

Lilian Herrera

Amazing favor... Highly recommend!!!

ryan H

Love this little family own restraunt! Order Teqines they are amazing!

Ellie Bisulca

Excellent food and service.

Carl Guthrie

Great food, and nice atmosphere, but limited seating. Love the chicken salad and avocado arepas!

michael kullback

Food and staff are amazing. I make it a stop anytime i am in Woodbridge.

Mike R

Clean. Good food fast friendly serve. To bad one of the few good restaurants in Woodbridge can not afford or get a better location. Would do a great business with a better location.

Terry McClure

My son and I dropped in at the spur of the moment. My ribeye was excellent and his pabellon Criollo was also fantastic. Note the table hot sauce is actually hot which was also a refreshing surprise.

Edwin Rodriguez

My wife and I are true foodies; I mean we went to Komi last night, a very good, classy and pricey resturaunt in DC. However, Arepas Capitol can certainly hold its own. We have gone here many times so we can recommend many of its items. But if anybody is going to complain about how long it takes to prepare the food, then they are missing the point. The food is freshly made from the moment you order till it hits your table. This food cannot be rushed, its not fast food even if the size of its 9-table establishment misleads you otherwise. I have no basis for Venezuelan cuisine but I know real, authentic when I taste it, and AC is it. This place isnt known for it healthy veggie options but the savory dishes like the Pabellon Criollo, which is served as breakfast all day, to its "arepas" which are corn puff pastries which can be shaped into small disk-shaped appetizer or into sandwhich form. Its already delicious on its own but imagine it being filled with beans, cojete cheese, scrambled eggs or a Venezuelan authentic unbelievably savory chicken salad. Long story short, if you want taste of familiar ingredients but with some of Venezuelan heart

Yesenia Hernandez

Absolutely love the food here!

C Yasuda

Fantastic place to eat. Really good food that's different from what you can get elsewhere. Really friendly staff, it makes you appreciate local business in an area that is dominated by every chain restaurant possible.

Rodrigo Ribas

Best place ever!!

Mitchell Kauffman

I visited this place for the first time last night. The food was delicious and affordable. We fed a family of 10 for $121.00. And we didn’t skimp. So quiet affordable for food of this high quality. Venezuelan food is quite good for American tastes. Don’t be afraid to try it. You will like it. Very friendly staff, but it is a family place. If you need service, you may need to speak up. Don’t be shy or you may have wait longer than you want to. Food is prepared fresh, but quickly. Excellent sauces. Especially the avocado and the garlic. Store is small and may be hard to find. It is right next to BJ’s.

Nelson Avila

The food is great and the staff is friendly. First time going to this place and I'm looking forward to going again!

Michael Bennett

Get the fully loaded burger! Best burger in town!

John Quezada

The food here is amazing!!! If you are interested in trying delicious Venezuelan food then this place is a must. The carne desmachada was of great quality and flavor. The empanadas were very fresh. Can't wait to go back.

Heidi Hernandez

Authentic food. Always tasteful.

B Dufresne

Arepas here were amazing! So glad they are expanding because it was hard to get a table for a while it was so good. Service was always great though!

Kriss Jolibee Fat

Good food

Charles Hamilton

Perfect 5/7 empanadas. Ground beef and cheese are my favorites.

Antonio Samuel


S Sanchez

Food was amazing, atmosphere is real chill. Restaurant is clean and service is awesome. Definitely a hidden gem in Woodbridge!!!

Peter Pohl

This place is very delicious. I will definitely be back to try more things on the menu. The staff is friendly and service was prompt. We all had the arepas, and the beef, beef and cheese, chicken and cheese, chicken salad, and pabellon were all really good. The seating area was small, but looked like it could be expanded to the next room if they so chose. They had some wine available, and the sodas are by the can. If you love trying out new places and you haven't been, check it out. Get the cheese rolled appetizers when you do.

Rafael Cano

Excelent place to try venezuelan food. The empanadas are great !!

William Courreges

Yehilys was really great she was our server and damn the food was great and inexpensive gracia para todo!

Zoila Gardner

Great service and very tasty food. Make sure you are clear with your choices. Don't leave without tasting Cachapas!

M. Nuñez

Great Venezuelan comfort food. Try the arepas (corn patties with a variety of stuffings) or the typical dish of Venezuela, pabellón (a "blue plate special" with rice, black beans, fried ripe plantains, shredded beef in sauce and a fried egg...). Tip: for dessert, ask for a "quesillo" a cream cheese flan that is to die for... and is not in the menu!

Alvin Lee

Excellent food and service! Experiment with the sauces - you'll find the combination of arepa and sauce that works for you.

Sol Segura

Arepas are so good!

Meredith R.

Incredible food!! I love the arepas de pabellón and the cachapas. The Venezuelan food here is delicious and flavorful, hearty and filling. I can’t say enough! I’ve taken two friends here and had delicious meals both times. The flan is amazing, and I usually don’t like flan. Perfect, classy “hole in the wall” place.

Richard Johnson

Good. A little pricy for what you get. Looks like maybe a family run business. There are a lot of people sitting around the seating area and kitchen entrance just hanging out on their phones. - 1 star. The waiter is wearing workout pants, sweatshirt, and ball cap. What bugged me was, he kept scratching his head and not washing his hands. Kinda unsanitary. -1 star.

Serette Mondesir

The steak was flavorful and juicy. The salad was fresh which I really appreciated. I also had the beef empanadas. I was good as well. It was my first time going but this will be on my list of regulars. The decor was cute and clean.

Rosa Martinez

Small place,nice,good food, friendly staff. Venezuelan food

AlesiaAnn Conley

The food was delicious. Woodbridge is a bit of a drive but definitely worth making.
