This family run restaurant has been a favorite for years. There are options for everyone here, from kids to adults and to meet all taste buds: vegetarian or not. The desserts are wonderful. If you've never had an empanada before, they're basically little fried pies stuffed with all sorts of wonderful things: veggies, meats, fruits, sauces, you name it, it's... More

Really like the empanadas. Spicy pulled pork has been my favorite so far as savory and sweet is the guava with cream cheese. However, my Mom did not enjoy the Churrasco Sandwich, meat was very tough. Enjoy their interior decor and really llike the pet-friendly patio. Pretty good beer selection as well.

Marini's is a fantastic place to stop in and dine for lunch. Fresh, delicious empanada's, excellent service, family-owned, and you can tell they take pride in their restaurant and their food. If you only have your lunch hour from work, it's a perfect choice as well since they are extremely efficient.

My husband and I were staying in Katy for one night and wanted to have a quick dinner and had seen great reviews for Marini's. I love empanadas and my husband couldn't remember ever trying them so we decided to give them a try. I had the Eggplant and the Asparagus and the Apple Gabriella for dessert. My husband had... More

My husband and I go to the Empanada House about 6 times a year. The food is good. Service is usually slow. On this visit I had pre/ordered 12 dozen empanadas for a specific pick up time and had pre-paid for them. I waited 40 minutes. I thought they were still preparing them and was happy to wait, thinking the... More
