a small eatery on orchid near emerald. went to get a quick bite a few times. the choripan (argentine name for chorizo hot dog, I guess) was as good as what I had in Buenos aires, I guess that certifies its authenticity. also had empanadas - big fried dumplins with meat stuffings - very good as well, but I personally...

A nice change for us being on the road to Oregon from Texas. This little place is tasty. I'm vegetarian and my boyfriend a carnivore. The menu satisfied us both. The Cuzco is delicious. He really enjoyed the meat varieties. We also loved the Rafi.... A Nutella & cherry empanada. Super yummy!

My wife and I love Empanadas and sought out Tango's. We generally do not like the deep fried version but Tango's shells are light and tasty. We will definitely stop by again when we return to the area.

My husband & i stopped at Tango's because we wanted something other than a burger or chicken sandwich - so glad we came upon Tango's. What a nice change of pace and the food was delicious. My husband had the Chili Empanada and I had the Elpuerco - I was afraid they would be greasy but far from it, definitely... More

I love Tango's so much. I have been going there for the past 6 or 7 years or so and I have never been disappointed. When you walk in, you are greeted by the friendliest man on the planet and you can't help but smile. I take all my friends and family there because I want all of them to... More

This place puts other lunch spots to shame, and costs less than fast food. You have to try it. Don't let the lack of decor turn you away.

This is by far my fave fast food place. An extensive menu of delicious empanadas both savory and dessert. I've never had one I didn't like. The prices are amazing, only $2.50 per empanada and they are a generous size. There are vegetarian options as well. They just opened a new location in Nampa with drive thru! I highly recommend!

Go with people you like and sample the various flavors. Empanadas are large and two is plenty for a meal. Take a few minutes to review the menu, as there is a lot to take in the first time.

We have recently discovered this little gem when looking for something different for the office to order for lunch. We are able to call in our order and have it ready in minutes as well as pay individually. Service is always warm and friendly and the food is to die for!!!
