A-freakin-mazing.

A-freakin-mazing. Go. Now! Neither my husband or I like pork. But the guy that took our order felt so passionately about the pork empanadas that he gave us one. Oh my God. Amazing.

In town for business and decided to check out this place--which I was not leaving so soon as I'd definitely be back. We tried a variety of empanadas and enjoyed the pork, chicken pesto, and steak the best. But many of the others we tried were really tasty too.

While on vacation this little gem of a restaurant was right down the street from our hotel. We popped in there for dinner one night. We literally tried 8 different empanadas. All of them were delicious and fresh. The staff were so helpful and polite. The dipping sauces were very good. I love the fact that they are small in... More

Empanadas in a choice format, hand made and available in both meats and meatless varieties. Very enjoyable food in a take away format, a few tables - great fro a meal or a snack.

Not exactly a dark and stormy night, but a severe thunderstorm was on the way, so what better than take out of empanadas? Panas has an amazing selection, something literally for everyone-I bought the four selection deal and wolfed them down after regaining my hotel room, steps ahead of a window rattling storm...nice place to dine in as well as...

This is an inexpensive restaurant that my husband read about on Urban Spoon. It is a tiny restaurant, and there are a good number of options of empanadas which are baked, so great from a health perspective. Unfortunately, Panas no longer has a license to serve beer or wine, but does have wonderful fruit drinks. The meals are reasonable, and... More

Perhaps the best empanadas I've tasted. I had the vegetarian options with the green mild sauce and it was all perfection. What stands out most is the "light" pastry. Very yummy. And the plantain chips took over the edge. Great experience and delicious meal. Thank you, Panas. I wish you much success. Please come to NYC!
