“Great Empanadas, Amazing Salsa”
Review of Hippo's

Ranked #170 of 340 Restaurants in Lynchburg
Restaurant details
Reviewed March 11, 2018

I've been in here a couple of times with family, and haven't been disappointed yet. They have a variety of empanadas - baked, fried, with and and without cheese, etc. The salsa is ridiculous so get some chips if you're in the mood.

In addition to the Hippos - as they call their empanadas - they also serve a variety of sandwiches. Of particular interest is the fried greenbean sandwich that everyone raves about.

It's a great place to stop by if you're just looking for a quick bite. Also, I imagine that the Hippos would make a great drunk food, if you've been drinking in the area.
