If you are looking for the real deal, stop here! Many kinds to pick from. I chose the Chorizo (chorizo, potatoes and peppers)and the Chilipanzingas (Ham, cheeses, onions and peppers) Spicy!! Loved them. And the owners wife served my empanadas. She is a sweetheart!!

This place has never disappointed in their quality of empanadas, they're always welcoming as you enter the establishment. I always get them to go. They are made to order. Small dining area.
