This is a very unassuming little shack on the side of the road on the way out of town. However, their baked empanadas are probably the best I've tasted in both Central and South America (possibly with the exception of a little place in Buenos Aires) and only $1 for each!! Lovely.

We ate pretty much everything on the menu. The burgers are excellent, really well made. But the best thing is the empanadas. The contents varies on a daily basis, we tried roasted vegetable, mini cheese burgers, braised beef in coconut and wine, and plantain and garlic. Everything was exceptional! They also make a great snack cold for lunch. The owner... More

The empanadas, burgers, and drinks are all totally wonderful! Great innovation with fresh local ingredients, baked (not greasy fried in old fat) empanadas, veggie and meat--marvelous. I can't wait to get back and try their pies and take-home frozen meals.

Taller De Sabor was recommended by our hosts, so we went there for lunch. We had hamburgers which were very good and just the thing after several days of overly rich and over priced food. I had a berry and banana smoothie, which was simply yummy, and it was nice to taste the fruit without any added sugar. My husband... More

While I was in Bocas I had a hard time to find decent priced food and snacks but this place got it all. Im so happy i found this littel spot that has delicous lemonadas and veggie empanadas. The only critic i could give as an enviornmental friend is that the hamburgers are served on aluminium foil which takes forever... More

I like the US taste of the hamburgers, it was like eating at a outback. What I dislike is that its not always open, like many of the business in the island.
