Wonderful treat in Boise!

I've most of the empanadas on the menu and have yet to be disappointed. I know international food isn't for everyone, this provides a wonderful treat and alternative to the standard Olive Garden's or TGIF's. The staff is always extremely friendly and happy to share an experience or two. I highly... read more

My favorite is the Gaucho. I love the flavor of the beef. This is a great place to stop if you have a little time to enjoy a different kind of lunch.

I figured this was the best day to try Tango's for the first time, and it will be the first of many visits! My coworker ordered and picked up a variety of empanadas for lunch. She said the service was great. The food was awesome! I had the gaucho and we all shared a few different dessert varieties. I was... More

I crave the Gaucho with Chimi Churi sauce. The owner is beyond friendly. I love supporting this mom and pop joint. They do it up right.

We stopped here based on a foodie blog while driving from Utah to Washington. These empendas are soooo good. We ordered the gaucho and pork. Both were excellent. My son got the pizza one and it was even exceptional. We topped it off with a Carmel and cherry dessert pies. Carmel was the winner by a thin margin. I wish... More

We come here several times a month and we live an hour away. The food is never greasy, even the next day when you... More

This was our first time here. After reading the TA reviews we decided to stop by. Very impressed with the customer friendly service. Excellent! Wow! We were impressed with the meat and dessert empanadas. Melts in your mouth. Not greasy. Highly recommended. Excellent prices! The parking lot was full on a Saturday afternoon. We will be back! Wish they had... More

My husband and I are on a cross country road trip and had the good fortune to be in Boise for dinner. After looking up reviews, we decided to come to Tango's. Their empanadas are incredible! I ordered the Puerco, he ordered the Rancho, and we each had a BBQ. The pork in the Puerco was tender and delicious and... More

The owners are amazing people and I'm so proud! I don't actually know them personally but I've been frequenting Tango's since they opened. This couple is a perfect example of the American dream! The empanadas are authentic and creative. My husband and I have tried every single menu item between the two of us and while we have our favorites,... More
