Love the empanadas and the skewers are good too. Not sure how I feel about the pineapple dessert empanadas, even though the apple was divine. Essay to pick up and affordable priced. Definitely recommend trying Johnny Pacific.

We were looking for a place to stop for lunch on the way to Santa Barbara and wanted to avoid chains. This place was perfect. Friendly service and delicious food. We tried 4 empanadas and the signature salad. It was hard to pick a favorite. Definitely will go back.

This was not my first visit to Johnny Pacific. I've been a fan of their empanadas for a few years. When I've eaten empanadas at other restaurants, the predominant taste was dough. Not here. You experience the taste of fresh vegetables and meats, not the frozen incarnations. Their sauces complement the empanadas. So when I was considering what kind of... More

Great little casual place. Pretty much everything on their menu is good. Chicken satay skewers are BOMB! Chimichurry skewers are great also. Most of the empanadas are tasty! Great fresh juices too!

I read about this place online and took local family there! They had "wanted to try" and were very glad we did. All of us loved the spinach and cheese, the Kailua Pork and the pineapple. All of the sauces were excellent. Great take out and well worth a visit.

When my wife said she had an allergy to an ingredient in one of the dishes, the owner cooked up a modification on the spot. The line caught salmon with Asian basil dressing was excellent - much more than I expected from what looked like a hole in a strip mall wall. The chicken satay was perfectly cooked and generous....

Awesome empanadas and flavored "aguas". My only complaint were the side of fries that were somewhat greasy and the parking situation. The place is quaint and small, but once you start eating you'll probably forget about these minor issues that really don't have anything to do with the excellent food. Great lunch spot!
