I'd only ever had dessert empanadas prior to eating at Tango's so I wasn't sure how it would be. They were pretty good. It wouldn't be my favorite to go to all the time since pretty much everything is deep fried! But...an empanada, fries & a drink for 5 bucks is a pretty good deal. They are super friendly too,...

First, this seems to be a family business and the owners are super friendly. So, I say if you want something different then please try Tangos. Of course, the food and spices are very unique and enjoyable. So, I am trying to cut them some slack. However, this place is a food truck with 4 walls. You order at the... More

They also have a new location in Nampa (Nampa/Caldwell Blvd) too! Great, consistent food and awesome service! Highly recommend both locations! Love their desserts too!

Saturday and the place was hopping. We were fourth in line but only ten minutes from a table and having our order in front of us. Don't be discouraged by a crowd. (Takeout orders were also going out the door). The empanadas have The Best crust surrounding them. Light and flaky with no oil residue. Try the Gaucho (ground beef,... More

Locally owned and family operated. The food is all homemade and served with a friendly smile from the staff and owner/operator. Prices are super reasonable, you definitely get your money's worth. I recommend trying a couple different empanadas with each visit, they are all delicious! Find your favorite, mines the Gaucho. Might be a small restaurant but it hides big... More

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...
