#9? You're out of your mind!

Every time the tasty empanadas reach my taste buds my day becomes worthwhile. Always 2 for lunch and 1 for dessert. I love the refried bean, cheese, jalapeño; and you can't go wrong with the Gaucho. Don't forget the chimichurri sauce, and wash it down with the máte lemonade. My favorite dessert... read more

Have been eating here for several years now. My son and I both love it. A combo Fugazza y Cordoba and the Puerco are perennial favorites. The chimichurri sauce is yummy, too. My son really enjoys the sandwiches. Luis is as friendly and welcoming as pretty much all the other reviewers have mentioned. I only wish they were open longer... More

I have hesitated reviewing this place - love the local non-chain effort. Small place and entrepreneurial ethnic food goal, but I was disappointed in the dough and flavors compared to other empanadas I've had. I felt dough was heavier than should be, not as flakey, and fillings (we tried a lot to get a good mix and ordered a lot)... More

This place is small, but the food is fantastic! There are many savory and sweet empanadas to choose from, and the pricing is very reasonable. I like to try at least one new variety on each visit, and I haven't found one that I don't like yet!

This is ethnic (Brazilian) fast food done great. The ambiance is what you would expect, order at the counter and wait for hem to cal you. Everything is made to order. The Empanadas are exquisite, fillings are spot on (I have tried 3 of the 24+ options) and the flaky crust is excellent. The help is bright and friendly. Don't... More

This is a great lunch or light dinner place, The specialty here is empanadas, and they have many different options of meat fillings and several dessert options as well. They offer a combo of 1 empanada, small fries and drink for $5, the perfect amount for lunch. Also on the menu are sandwiches, very large and filling, and tasty! The... More

The empanadas are authentic and delicious. Whether it be your regular dinner kind or your sweet tooth is hankering for a desert one. The sandwhiches are great as well I reccomend the BBQ my personal favorite. A very inviting and laid back environment and the people are just so nice.

Tiny neighborhood shop. Order at the counter and find a table if you can or take your order to go. Always busy. Traditional Argentian workman's cuisine. Owners from Argentina. Great community members. I've tried all of their empanadas, including th vegetarian, but like the traditional pork, green chilies best. Always, consistently excellent. Have great, traditional desserts, as well, and Yerba... More
