If you're in Flushing Meadows park then this is the place to go for lunch. Tiny place so opt for takeout. Everting is made fresh to order so it takes around 15 mins. The place is always busy but the staff are very friendly. Over the years we've tried almost everything on the menu - favorites are the baccala, spinach and ricotta and the breakfast empanada. The hot sauce is really great too.

A must when you are in Corona! They all taste great and made fresh to order. Wait wasn't long. Their homemade ice cream is amazing as well!

I am no the empanadas type, but we stopped here on a lark en route for lemon ice an wow. Staff is friendly and quick, line is long but don't let that dissuade you. All empanadas are made fresh to order (10 minutes), but this is worth the anticipation. $2 or less will get you a tasty treat!

A great casual spot for delicious and inexpensive food that you can eat on the go. Everyone in my family enjoys themselves when we visit. The empanadas range from savory to sweet and their homemade dipping sauce has a great kick.

Brilliant little cafe serving the best Empanadas I tasted while in NYC. Very busy with locals which says it all! It is a little on the small side and very busy so think twice if you're looking to sit in at peak times, but great for a quick bite to eat.
