Empanada Heaven

The best $5 meal in town!! An empanada, fries, and a drink! The empanadas are like angels dancing in your mouth!! Personally the Gardel is my favorite, but you can't go wrong with anything you pick!! It is a must eat place!!

Someone told me about this place and I decided to get it for takeout. Glad I did. We got different types of empanadas and the dessert ones were so good. The empanadas were light and flaky. The staff was very friendly. I just felt like I ate a little too much fried food at the end of the night but... More

After living in Argentina for a few years I came to love a good empanada. This place's carne empanadas are delicious, and taste just like they did in Argentina. The restaurant is very small, but I think contributes to the look and feel of an authentic argentine restaurant. I highly recommend if you're looking for something different or some authentic...

The Empanadas were outstanding. The decor is nothing to write home about, plain, simple, neat & clean..I dont need crappy food with a pretty setting. This was great for an afternoon snack.

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 filling that was definitely homemade and not overly sweet...really good!... 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.
