The Delicias Story

Delicias serves up fresh, authentic arepas and latin food from our trucks on 40th & Locust and 35th & Market Streets in West Philadelphia, and at events around town. Our hand-made arepas come hot off the griddle, stuffed with your choice of home-made fillings, from fresh avocado, cotija cheese, and fried sweet plantains to slow-cooked shredded beef, chicken or grilled spicy pork sausage (chorizo)…simple deliciousness on wheels.

Delicias was awarded first place in Manayunk Street Festival for a roast pork and apple pico de gallo arepa, and received the 2012 Penndy Award.  We have been featured on Fox News, Philadelphia City Paper, Philadelphia Inquirer, and as one of Philly’s “To Do’s.”

Owner Lynette Gueits (pronounced Gates) first brought Delicias’ bright wheels to UPenn’s campus in September 2012, and added a second truck shortly after. She is a graduate of Johns Hopkins University and Wharton School of Business. Lynette is delighted to share her passion for cooking and love of classic Venezuelan street food with the Philadelphia community.
