Good for takeout. The steak with rice and beans very good. Menu choices are not limited with either wheat or corn empenadas

the selection of flavors is endless, but they are mostly fried, so it is more of a cheat day kind of spot, if you are working on your summer body do not go there or you will lose yourself in flavors, also they have some great desert empanadas!

It's a takeout restaurant. They make every kind of empanadas and they are very very good. Must go back again. They also have plates of food as well.

The empanada shell is very good but sometimes it is hard to determine the flavor of the filling. The dessert fig, cheese and caramel is a star.

no matter which location I've gone to, the empanadas are the best# fairly clean and you can order for pick up or eat them there. They cook to order so better to call before you go.

I went to Mamas based on the great reviews on Trip Advisor. Although Mama's has an "A" in the window from the department of health, it doesn't look "A" clean. It's definitely not a comfortable place to eat your empanadas after you order them. As for the empanadas, I ordered the #3 special which included 6 empanadas, corn only, no... More

We thought these would be little bites, when they arrived they were a lot bigger and very good value for money. The broccoli and cheese was very nice and so was the elvis.

Loved the shredded beef/potato and the caramel/queso cheese empanadas. My husband and I had lunch for under $13 - including drinks and dessert.
