My family loves to look for local finds that don't break the bank and have great flavor. Boy, did we find a gem. Great homemade flavors and their empanadas are not fried, they are baked. The sauces pair very well. And they have dessert empanadas as well! We ordered a dozen to split with our family of four, and that... More

We stopped in here for a late lunch. This place is a bit of a dive inside. You order at the counter and grab a rickety table that you may have to clean your self. We were a bit disappointed that they were out of 2 of the 4 types of empanadas, but what we ended up with was quite... More

The empanadas were tasty and unique, for a pretty decent price. We really enjoyed the sauces. Only regrets are that there wasn't more seating available and they ran out of one of the empanada choices.

This was my first time having empanadas and I was not disappointed. Panas has a wide range of flavors, both vegetarian and meat. I tried four different vegetarian ones and enjoyed each of them. Their blueberry maple dessert empanada was also tasty. I would definitely go back.

Popped in with grumbling hungry tummies on our way back to the Metro nearby. The selection is excellent, both savory and sweet choices. Plus carne and veggie fillings. Service was helpful and kind, place was clean and bright. Perfect!!!!

Well decorated, small empanadas shop in DuPont circle. Our hotel was a few steps away. Stopped in for a combo. Well priced. Good variety. Drips (dipping sauces were yum too). Will def stop by again the next time I'm craving empanadas. Cheers!!

I went here because I had never heard of Empanadas. It was not busy on an early weekday evening so service was rapid. I had the 4 Empanadas combination meal which was just about right for dinner for one. You order by the two letter abbreviation of the fillings that you want (there are both savoury and sweet). The same... More

We tried a few of their empanadas and all were quite good. They are on the small side so you may need a few if you want to fill up, but they offer combo meals. They also have fresh juice. We tried the Lulo which is supposedly a kiwi like fruit. It was very good. The customer service was also... More

Just the right size of snacks before we went to the pub. An extensive choice of fillings too. Quick and cheap but not a reflection on the service and the decor. Just wish I had this on my doorstep in my home town that's all!

Panas specializes in Latin fusion gourmet empanadas, crescent- shaped turnovers, stuffed with well seasoned combinations of meats, vegetables, spices, fruits, and sweets. Our recipes are inspired by the idea of Latin Fusion cuisine; a culinary concept based on creating new recipes by combining traditional and modern culinary techniques and mixing ingredients from different countries in the Americas. The only empanadas’ tradition we want to preserve is that empanadas a great idea and fun package for food.
