This was my second visit to this location and not only is the atmosphere amazing, the service is outstanding and the food is always so fresh and delicious! Everything is reasonably priced and there is a great variety of empanadas. I believe they also have sandwiches as well. The wait is never too long and they treat you like you're a regular.

Selection of numerous types of empanadas (as you would expect) and decent beer selection too. Friendly staff and relatively inexpensive. I'll be eating here again.

A little hard to find because it is on the back side of the Carillon Shopping Center off of Westheimer but definitely worth the search effort.

There are 2 small areas for eating outside and the food is good.
It is a casual place that is nicely decorated.
The person taking my order was really nice and answered my questions on the food since I was not familiar with their menu.

My empanadas were made to order and served hot.
After I asked, the lady there told me that this location is affiliated with the Marini's Empanada House in Katy.
I had been to that location before and knew it was good.

This location did not disappoint.

A great little place, with some very interesting mini-calzone type empanadas. The range was great, so was the food, beer was available, prices reasonable and the staff very friendly. I would definitely return here next time I'm staying nearby
