This is a fantastic idea - it is kind of like our home made burger places at home - with lots of different delicious options and a rustic atmosphere to accompany (graffiti on the walls etc).

We had the 12 empanadas+wine for less than 150 pesos. Wine was good, the empanadas delicious, probably the best of our Argentina holiday. I especially recommend the other essential with cheese, but they were all good, enjoy the variety. During the dinner two very good musicians introduced us to some music typical from the place and there was a couple... More

No nonsense empanada shack run by an efficient lady who makes empanadas to order, and there are over a dozen choices. Get a dozen for 95 pesos and enjoy. They're all delicious.

We came and got a variety of 10 empanadas for 90 pesos, they were really tasty and were freshly made. It looked a nice place to eat in for a quick bite too.

I had big expectations going to this place as everybody: the guidebook, travelblogers, people in the hostel recommended it. Maybe they had a bad day of something, but the empanadas were really bad. They were too long in the oven, almost black and the crust was thick and the filling full of unripe tomatoes. I would give it 2 or... More

Maybe you should not order a salad in an empanadas restaurant, but we had to wait for one hour on it.. Besides, the ordered empanadas came even 10 minuts after the salad.

Fabulous empanadas. Well worth the trip. Try as many different kinds as you can. My personal favorite was the Arabe. We got them to go but I would have loved to sit in the restaurant and try to find the oldest date on the wall.

Delicious empanadas and great variety. All homemade and prepared as you order. The open kitchen let you have a peek at the empanadas in the making. Cosy atmosphere.
