Their desserts are not to be missed. My personal favorite is their Yuca Beignets that are gluten-free! I appreciate the option to order ahead and pick it up. It's also nice that they deliver via DoorDash now!
Response from the owner - in the last week
There's nothing better than a sweet ending to a delicious meal, and I'm thrilled to see that our beignets hit the spot for you! Whether we're bringing it to your door or your coming to ours, I hope to see you soon! -Adriana, Owner

Food never arrived. I gave it an hour. When I called the woman dismissed me and said that all the orders were already out and that she would call grubhub to figure why they never received the order. 10 minutes later, the driver calls me to say the food is already cold and he's at the restaurant and that I should call the third party delivery service to rectify. No explanation for why the story flip flopped, did you think I would not notice? Clearly the order was forgotten. Rather than rectify the situation by re-preparing the meal and delivering it, you call me and can't even deliver the truth? Offensive. And, yes, I'm hungry.

I can imagine how frustrating this must have been for you, Reilly -- you deserve a fresh and delicious meal from us, and I'm disappointed that you didn't get that. Our delivery system is a third party, so I don't have control over their routes and system, but I apologize for the hassle. I'd really like to make this right with you, so please call me with some more details about your order so I can fix everything with Grubhub. Our number is (415)400-5453 -- I look forward to speaking more with you. -Adriana, Owner

Pics Pica is an awesome, casual spot that consistently serves delicious food. I'm a fan of their classics white arepas with crispy chicken, jicama and other tasty things. I highly recommend this place whenever in the Mission and looking for something tasty and laid back.

Wow -- your usual order is fantastic, and I'm so happy to see you're such a fan here. I can't thank you enough for spreading the word about us, and I hope to see you in here soon! -Adriana, Owner

Great food... a bit expensive. Two arepas(grilled corn burger) and a beer for 25$ Cashier was unfriendly
Response from the owner - 2 months ago
Thanks for the feedback here, Sahar -- we use the best local ingredients for everything here, so our prices match the incredible quality you're getting with each arepa. I'm glad you enjoyed them, and I'd love to see you back soon! -Adriana, Owner

Omg how is this joint 4 stars!?! Meat was bland, tasted like cat food. Rice was soggy mush. Server grabbed ice with an ungloved hand to shove into a dirty high ball glass that passed for a margarita. And this miserable experience was expensive. Avoid!

Delicious. The sweet corn arepas is slightly better than the other option. I particularly like the pork with the avocado.

Nom. I had the Spicy Chicken Catira. The coconut rice is awesome.

Oh gosh - I can't wait to go back! The shredded beef arepa is savory and sweet and perfect in every way. Super friendly staff, convenient to Bart, laid-back place. The food was more filling than I expected - I only wanted more because it was so tasty.
Response from the owner - 6 months ago
Nicole, I always enjoy seeing reviews like this -- thank you for such kind words. The shredded beef is always a favorite here, so I am just delighted that you liked it all! I can't wait to have you back again soon to try some other great arepas! -Adriana, Owner
