Tasty Empanadas

Stopped here when we were passing through Boise. Tried 4 four different empandas (the Gaucho, El Puerco, Rancho & for dessert Manzana) All were really good but the Gaucho stood out as our favorite (especially with the chimichurri sauce) between the 3 savory ones. The dessert empanda had an apple... read more

If you want a quick tasty bite but your sick of fast food crap, this is the place. Especially after arriving at the airport after a flight.

Went here based on reviews.. it definitely did not disappoint! I only wish I was hungrier because I couldn't get enough. The empanadas were so good. We got the Gaucho and the Gardel. Both were excellent and very flavorful. The Gaucho was my favorite and at about $2.50 each, you are able to get a few different kinds. I could... More

I have been looking for an authentic empanada in Boise and finally I found one!! My favorite empanadas include gaucho, el puerco, fugazza and cordoba. I can't wait to try their chocolate empanada! The owner is so friendly and fun to talk too I will definitely go back for more.

Every kind of empanada I've tried has been delicious. Sweet or savory, you can't go wrong. I highly recommend the Gaucho and the Caramello.

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 recommend Tango's!

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
