If you know real empanadas or make them, you HAVE to try Tango's. These are primarily Argentine but they even rival the real Chilean ones, too. Plan 2 empanadas per person and then split one or two of the dessert ones. El Puerco was our favorite but the Gaucho is closer to the Chilean ground beef ones. The kids loved... More

Went here the other day and really enjoyed it! I had the Gaucho which was the most authentic per the owner. The crust of the empanadas was fantastic on all of the ones we tried. I think of all that I tasted the best was the Gaucho as it was excellent. The Rancho was pretty good but I liked the... More

Unfortunately, I visited a couple of years ago, and found a hair in my empanada. I won't be returning.

I came here based on the reviews. I have to say it was only average at best. I don't understand the top ratings.

I have been to Tango's and it was ok. I am not writing to complain about the food, but simply that this can hardly be rated the best place to eat in Boise. I mean, seriously? Has as much cred as the usual Best of Boise that has literally ranked Olive Garden as the best Italian restaurant in town. Just... More

My family has been eating here for the past few years. The food is wonderful and the owners are great, welcoming folks who love people as well as what they do. If you're a first-timer, they will walk you through the menu and help you decide hat to order. When out of town family fist, we always take them here.... More

A diamond in the ruff! This small restaurant serves empanatas for a ridiculously cheap price! Not to also recommend the glowing hospitality from the small business owner!

From the minute we walked in the door and were warmly greeted by the owner I knew we were in for a treat. I have had Empanadas before but these were truly the best I have ever had. We were walked through the menu by the owner and took his recommendations. We had the Elpuerco shredded pork in homemade green... More

We love going to Tangos! Our boys love it as well and there are definitely a variety of items to choose from. They have sandwiches as well as empanadas. Do NOT forget to get a dessert empanada because they are SO good. There is so much to choose from that it is hard to order just one or two empanadas.... More
