Cheap and always delicious! I come here during lunch as the crowds aren't so heavy. I always order the guacamole with fried plantains and we get a few empanadas to share. They push them out of the kitchen quickly and deliver them piping hot to us. A no fuss and no frills kind of place with great food.

We went late at night after a show, it was packed and a little bit claustrophobic. Somehow we were able to get a table after waiting for a few minutes.
Beers were cold, and the empanadas were delicious. Something different, and we really enjoyed our meal.

We ended up going here twice on our visit to NYC. Once for late night empanadas and once for lunch when we tried a main course. Food was great, staff was nice. I suggest the chorizo empanada and the arroz con pollo.

Great empanadas & sauce! it's our 1st stop on every visit to NYC. Tiny restaurant on 9th Ave, great prices! Don't be afraid to go in if they look busy..they can pack a lot of people into a tiny space.
