On a friday night with every other place packed we decided to go for a 6 piece combo pack. Served quickly and with a smile, we had a great meal! Very very very tasty empanadas. Wish they were available closer to home!

Great food! Great service. Only downside is that they don't serve beer. They have great options for meat lovers and vegetarians. Each empanada has different flavor and interesting combinations

The empanadas were tasty and unique, for a pretty decent price. We really enjoyed the sauces. Only regrets are that there wasn't more seating available and they ran out of one of the empanada choices.

Panas specializes in Latin fusion gourmet empanadas, crescent- shaped turnovers, stuffed with well seasoned combinations of meats, vegetables, spices, fruits, and sweets. Our recipes are inspired by the idea of Latin Fusion cuisine; a culinary concept based on creating new recipes by combining traditional and modern culinary techniques and mixing ingredients from different countries in the Americas. The only empanadas’ tradition we want to preserve is that empanadas a great idea and fun package for food.
