We tried a chicken empanada. It had good flavor, it was hot, and just the right amount of grease, but the filling was a little scarce. Could have had more.

I always stop here when I am at pubic market for an empanada. You must try the homemade sauces too! The owner is very friendly. Don't be scared by the line as it goes by fast.

Everyone loves this place. It is good, cheap eats by public market standards. I like the folks who work this stand. They are super friendly and efficient. I think lots of people come to the market primarily for this venue.

Jaun and Maria's Empananda Stop is a must-do feature of the Rochester Public Market. Whether having the signature empanadas or beans and rice, or tostones, etc. You will be pleased. Their various salsas are excellent and available for purchase as well.

Crispy, crunchy, hot and delicious. Empanadas at 8am on a Saturday? YES! Eat them there and take some home. They serve record amounts of empanadas every week and they are supposed to be expanding soon. Juan and Maria are the real deal. They've been doing...More
