I was skeptical at first because I don't usually like trying new things but I tried this place and it was fantastic. Their Empanadas were awesome! I would highly recommend anyone try it.

Went yesterday during lunch. Small place, off the beaten path and PACKED with patrons. Confusing and crowded inside, half the people are in line to order the other half have tickets and are waiting for their orders. A healthy dose of 'butt-n-face' here.. as you're...More

Went here for a midday snack with my husband. We tried three different empanadas - chocolate, chicken tinga and one other. They were all amazing! The empanadas hit the spot and the cashier was super friendly. I'd definitely recommend the place!

Good food, kind start and reasonable prices. This is good on a date, for work, or even just a quick bite to eat with friends. Really recommend this place.
