We had 3 different vegetarian empanadas here, they were good but surely not the best we had so far. Price was same as every other place in town for an empanada (ARS 50, March 2019). Cash only, no cards.

This was probably the worst lunch experience we had in 2 weeks travelling across Argentina. The food was OK but not cheap. The issue were the staff, the lady serving us does not want to work there. She didn't care we walked in, did not...say hi, did not communicate at all and just felt odd and awkward.More

The place is small, order at the counter. There are places to sit inside but it’s incredibly hot from the oven. I felt bad for the employee. While it was maybe 60 degrees outside, it felt like it must have been 90 degrees inside. There...are some picnic tables outside. Empanadas are made to order. We got ours to-go and went back to our apartment only to discover that half of our order was wrong. I ate one and found it doughy and lacking flavor. Took bites of the others that were wrong and didn’t like any of them. We had much better empanadas in Buenos Aires.More

The location of this restaurant is great for grabbing an empanada or two or four, on the way out to hike. The empanadas were all very tasty and the dough was perfectly soft and crisp.

When you first walk by this store, looks a bit small and sketchy. But once you head in, the prices and the huge variety of flavors and filling will change your mind. They have fantastic combos for 12 emps or 6 and a drink. My...friends and I tried spicy meat, lamb, pineapple and ham, spinach, 4 cheese and a few more. THEY were excellent and tasty extremely fresh. Come here early, when it is more fresh, since coming later in the evening could mean that they dont sell meats anymore. IF YOU ARE IN EL CHALTEN, COME HERE.More

When you've been climbing/hiking for 4 days and just want a simply meal & beer to get back on track, Che empanadas is the place to be! Great food at a very respectable price, I can't ask for much better than that! As seems to...be common in Argentina, they are a bit lax on the opening hours, so don't expect them to open right at whatever time is displayed. At least they've got a nice bench in the entrance while you wait.More
