I decided to go to Shachi's after reading bad reviews about Caracas, another arepas restaurant, but left Shachi's disappointed. The arepas were greasy and the dough just didn't taste good. My boyfriend ended up emptying the contents and eating the chicken filling alone with the rice. The biggest problem was the flavor, it was inconsistent. The things that were seasoned tasted great, but not enough food was seasoned. Also tried the empanadas, they were crispy, oil soaked and unflavorful. Finished the meal with a glass of red sangria...I guess it was okay, most people don't complain about drinks being too strong, but I like Sangria because of it's punch - like, sweet quality, which this drink lacked. It just tasted like alcohol. Overall, 1 side of rice + 3 arepas + 1 empanada + 1 glass of Sangria = $30. Definitely a steal, but when it comes to food, the most important aspect is the taste, which Shachi's just lacked. Maybe the entrees are better but the arepas and empanadas were slacking. The 1 star is for the amazing service.

All I have to say is Wow! I went to this place tonight with a friend who lives around the block and it was great. I had one of the entrees and my friend had 2 of the arepas. We also shared the biggest pitcher of white sangria both of us have every seen. $24.00 for 8 pint size glasses! Totally and completely worth it. One of the co-owners waited on us and he was very sweet and suggested his favorites. The food was great and reasonably priced. Would for sure go back!
