This is a small, basic place with great food! There are probably 12-15 kinds of empanadas to choose from on the menu. My favorite is the tuna. This place tends to have a lot of green olives and hard-boiled eggs in their food. So, if you are not a fan of one of those, that will eliminate half the menu, but there are still good ones to choose. When I go with friends, we get a few and split them, then go back for more. They are ready quickly. Most people eat 2-3 each. I'd skip the "dessert" ones. It's mostly bready and not much filling.

I take friends from out of town here. It's not too far from the airport, and not real pricey, but yummy! I definitely recommend it. The people working there are nice and friendly, as well.

This is a hole in the wall place in Irving. Went for lunch after reading good review online. It is a Argentinan fast food place, which has different pastries stuffed with chicken, beef, veggies, etc. very tasty. Good find

From the time I entered this feel good, intimate establishment, the aroma of fresh baked goodness smacked me in my face. The owners had a simple yet unique style of menu, as well as ordering process. The only factor that made me feel uneasy was choosing from the mouthwatering Empanadas on the menu, I can assure you that you can't go wrong. The dipping oil is OUT of this WORLD!!!! This is defiantly a diamond in the rough
