I stop by for a quick lunch on a regular basis and never had service without a smile, warm greeting and enthusiasm.

This place had the best empanadas! The store was no too busy when we arrived and the food came out quick. The owner was extremely nice and helpful. I highly recommend!

I ate here in December. The service was fast and friendly. The empanadas were great for the price. Easy to eat for cheap here :)

Based on everyone's reviews, we were expecting more. The restaurant itself is not that great (lack of space, an old fast food restaurant), but I figured the food would make up for it. The flavor combinations were a bit bland and odd and tasted like American food more than Argentinian empanadas.

I drove right by this place far too many times.What I found when I finally stopped ....yum. The best meat sandwich in the Treasure Valley. Buy a Gaucho when you're hungry and the comfort food memories will flood your mind. Then do an apple for desert ...oh my!

This is easily the best value for indulgent food in Boise. I have eaten here several times, tried several empanadas, and have loved every delicious bite. They do have sandwiches if you are with a group and want something not deep fried. I have never tried them, because their empanadas are so frickin' good! If you try nothing else, you... More

This place is just fantastic. Simple food made fresh, cheap, and fast. The assortment of empanadas available means everyone can find something (or two or three or ten things) that they like, and all of them are made to order. One of my favorite places.

My husband lived in Argentina for a couple years and he loves this place! And that says a lot cause he is picky when it comes to empanadas! Haha. Truly authentic, very good sized empanadas, and so delicious. We have already been here a couple times and it will definitely become a staple in our home. They also have other... More
