After surfing, the guy at the shop told us to go here. We were hungry and passed a lot of plenty good looking empanada places on the way, but we are so glad we came here. They were big, a lot of filling, super melty, and just absolutely delicious. I have been eating empanadas all over Chile and still haven't... More

My boyfriend and I visited this empanada stand because it was one of the few food suggestions on tripadvisor. They were very big empanadas, and at a decent price as well. I had queso tomato basil, and he had chicken corn queso. Both were great. The other empanada places nearby looked just as good/big, and at a slightly lower price,... More

Picada of "Empanadas". Over 60 kind of "Empanadas", Bigger than a hand. Specials are "Empanada Queso Camaron-Champiñon-Carne". Prices around CLP$2.000. Crowded place so be patient for your order. No place to sit and eat.

The service is a little slow (I think they make each empanada from scratch), but it is definitely worth the wait! We tried the chicken/cheese/tomato and beef/mushroom/cheese, and both were delicious. There are a lot of options and the cost was between 2000-3000 CLP. There is parking outside on the street.

Good place to eat a fried empanada at Pichilemu. Variety of flavors, from 1000 to 2500 pesos. One empanada feeds a man. A hungry man needs 2.

Folks line up and wait for one of the many empanadas available at this centrally located walk up. Everything is to go although many folks sit along the sidewalk and eat them.

This empanada place is definitely the most popular and you will almost always see crowds of young people waiting for their food outside during tourist seasons. I've had different empanadas there (only vegetarian ones) and they are delicious though very unhealthy (but in a good way!). They are all deep fried and with cheese but there are some interesting options... More

Love this place. You have to wait a few minutes but it is worth it. They make the empanada when you order it and they have about 50 to choose from. Usually fried empanadas aren't as stuffed but these ones are filled generously. Try the jaiba, ciboulette and tomate. Amazing

We stayed in Pichilemu for a few days and ate here almost twice a day because it was close, cheap, and really good. We tried a lot of types but our absolute favorite was with camarones, ciboulette y queso (shrimp, chives and cheese). The empanadas take a little longer but are big, made to order and piping hot. We would... More

Tough to find but great home-made empanadas in a typical Chilean outdoor pic-nic area once you get inside.
