The home of the $20 arepa. Just cannot get over that aspect. Food was really mediocre - it wasn't bad, but not going to run back.

I came with my wife that missed this place from 5 years living in the US, but we were very disappointed. It was expensive when you compare with sooo many other food options that taste better and less expensive. Also, it makes me mad when a place is so cheap that gives you ONE napkin for 2 ppl. I am...

One of the best place you have to visit in Medellín is J&C Delicias. In this restaurant you can taste the most delicious “arepas” (they look alike to a pancake) which is accompanied by beef, pork, fish, shrimp and whatever kind of meat. It a good choice for eating something native from Medellín.

Went to the El Tesoro location. Staff was exceptionally solicitous, helpful and friendly. Went out of their way to help us in English. Food was good quality for the price. Good to be in a place that cares about its customers, unlike the well known gourmet hamburger chain in town.

Arepa is by far one of the most traditional "Paisa meals". Sometimes explaining the flavor, consistency and versatility of this corn made flatbread becomes almost impossible unless it is experienced first hand. J&C offers a wide variety of arepas that will make anyone lick their fingers! Starting with the typical "arepa con queso" to the more international Peruvian variety, J&C... More

The branch of J&C Delicias next to Oviedo Mall recently moved across the street to a spanking new location in the mall across the street, with indoor/outdoor seating and a balcony with bar. This popular chain started in the Laureles neighborhood in 1980 with 5 other locations in neighborhoods and malls around town. Appetizers range from ceviche to snack size... More

We visited this place in Florida Mall. The place was recently opened, and it seems that the waitress was a rooky. She took more than 20 mins to take the order ( we were around 20) and the food was served about 40 to 50 minutes later. We ordered some hamburguers and the bread was COLD!!! i will never come...

A good selection of food on their menu. Everything we had was delicious and the portions were nice and big. Prices were reasonable for the amount of food.

J&C Delicias can be found all over Medellin. The offer a lot of dinner or lunch options. They have some wonderful Colombian arepas with many toppings. Choose the small size, even that's like too much to eat! They also have very nice shakes. The restaurants are very popular and nearly always full, but they service is quite good nonetheless.
