Panas specializes in Latin fusion gourmet empanadas, crescent- shaped turnovers, stuffed with well seasoned combinations of meats, vegetables, spices, fruits, and sweets. Our recipes are inspired by the idea of Latin Fusion cuisine; a culinary concept based on creating new recipes by combining traditional and modern culinary techniques and mixing ingredients from different countries in the Americas. The only empanadas’ tradition we want to preserve is that empanadas a great idea and fun package for food.

Panas Gourmet Empanadas is a small place, but packs a punch with its menu. Seating inside for about 18, outside maybe 8, the menu is extensive. I had three, chicken pesto, chipotle steak, and carne with one mild salsa verde and one spicy pimento dipping sauce. They were excellent. They have chicken, meat, fish, and vegetarian options. Non alcoholic beverages... More

We live nearby and grabbed about 40 empanadas to go. They were he Carne, carne asada and chicken pesto. By far the chicken pesto was the best one we tried. I would recommend this place over the nearby Julia's empanada any day

Great variety of stuffing inside "home-made" empanadas. Fast service and reasonably priced. Seems like it's "family owned" restaurant, which is always good.

they deliver! they offer a nice selection of meat and veg empanadas. the crust was flaky where needed and dense in the middle. i didn't like the 'pepperoni pizza' flavor, however the chipotle steak and the chicken pesto were delicious!

This is fast food. It's pretty good food, in fact. The empanadas selection is interesting, although the empanadas themselves seem to have been reheated. The quinoa salad was excellent. But don't come here for atmosphere. Worn plastic tables, but clean. Loud Latin pop music. A big sign in the window saying that their liquor license was revoked a few days... More

We got the 3 empanada combo based on the cashier's recommendation, pork, brie and eggplant. All were ready quickly, fresh, and delicious and the sauce was also very good. Nice atmosphere and good service, I will definitely go back when I am in the area.

Panas is one of our go-to spots for a quick, healthy meal. There are a lot of creative empanada choices, all of them baked and not fried. You can choose from different dipping sauces and the combination platters often come loaded with wafer-thin plantain chips. My kid loves this place. He happily eats at least three empanadas and hoards all... More

Checked this place out with the wife as we needed a quick snack. They were out of cheese which is what we really wanted. Ended up trying the pepperoni empanada which was just okay. I'd come back just to try the cheese empanadas.
