Welcome to El Arepazo!

We are a family owned restaurant that has been a staple in central Ohio for over 15 years. Our story began when us, Carlos and Carolina Gutierrez, originally from Venezuela and Colombia, had the dream to bring Latin American flavors from our homelands to Columbus. The name Arepazo comes from the traditional Venezuelan grilled cornmeal patties, Arepas, which we started selling at the famous Latino Festival. Upon seeing the popularity of our booth, and with lots of positive feedback and encouragement, we decided to start our first small location in Pearl Alley, Downtown which became the lunch spot for many working in the area. The combination of dishes from all over Latin America, with a special focus on Venezuelan and Colombian, turned out to be just what Columbus needed.
