Be advised that the empanadas here are deep-fried, which does make them a bit greasy. I wish that someone around here would make baked empanadas, like the ones I've had in South America, which are just as good and not as greasy. That said, I will be back for another sampling soon ! —DottieHoffmann

2015-12-17 10:25:41   Went for the first time Wednesday 12/16 and got the 5 Empanadas for $15 special. (Normally they are $3.50 each.) I chose Chicken/ Pork Mango/ Beef & Cheese/ Basura/ Shredded Beef. They were bigger than expected, especially compared to the 3-4 other places I've had Empanadas in town. Each was extremely rich, flavorful, and filling. I was stuffed after the first two but crammed a third into my stomach before I had to call 'uncle'. I reheated the other two for dinner. I'm looking forward to going back again soon and trying some of the other Empanada flavors. I'm especially anxious to order from their 'dinner' menu as well. An extremely welcome addition to the neighborhood. —ZedOmega
