Simple small place, "cozy", packed even on an average Monday night (11pm to 12am). We are not experienced with Hispanic cuisine, first time at the restaurant. Obviously, I cannot speak to how authentic the food is.
Considering 24 hours coverage, the menu is quite extensive. We ordered hot tea, hot (spicy) guacamole, 5 different empenadas and flan.
The guacamole was fresh but not really spicy. The empenadas' content was very tasty, some we liked, some not so much, but we chose some of them as "hey, this looks interesting, let's try it", so this is more a measure of personal taste.
We observed some neighboring tables to spoon the content out of the empenadas. A few hours later we figured out why: The deep fried dough shell was starting to bother our stomachs (was easily fixed with a little vodka ;-) ). So spoon out the content if you have a sensitive digestive system...
The flan was nothing special, we could have gotten at a local diner.
I would not go to NYC (1.5hrs drive) for this restaurant, but being in the neighborhood late at night, I would definitely consider going again.
