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

We love this place. The food is delicious and very reasonably priced! The owner is very friendly and personable. We enjoy going with family and introducing them to this family owned business. We'd recommend it to anyone wanting great food and getting a great value for your money.

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.
