    Mini empanadas are also great for parties or potlucks.

    Late night or midday, Julia's empanadas always taste fantastic. Get the Jamaican or Chilean.

    I have tasted 2 AM desperation and it is delicious.

    Wandered in after 12am for a late dinner. Ordered the Salteña empanada (HUGE) and a guava/peach empanada for dessert. Yum! Small place, seating for 3. I was quite entertained by all the chatty drunks.

    Really good for an inexpensive quick lunch or a late night snack.

    No frills. Just empanadas. Chilean was packed with meat and shell had just enough thickness

    Yong Kwon · August 10, 2014
  • Alex O.

    Great pastry shell but generally mediocre filling. Go with the Jamaican, which is delicious, otherwise, Chilean is okay while turkey and spinach suck.

    Alex Orr · June 8, 2014
  • Brent B.

    Great for grab and go. Eat outside in the plaza or dupont

    Brent Bovenzi · September 30, 2013

    Good empanadas but desert empanadas not worth it.

    roberto adelardi · July 11, 2013

    Always consistently good. I have been enjoying these empanadas for many years and know of none better. The 14th Street location is closed (but remains on their website.)

    They have a vegan empanada! It was fantastic!

    Tony Aponte · April 9, 2013
  • Ebrahim B.

    My fave is the turkey & spinach , although the saltenas ( with boiled egg ) and jamaican come pretty close :) :)

    Ebrahim Bandookwala · April 7, 2013

    It's stew in a edible pouch. Tasty, convenient, filling, and hits the spot on cold days. Desert ones aren't bad either.

    Salteñas too spicy... Regular

    SO spicy! But delicious when you need something quick and handheld. Line looks long, but moves fast. I prefer chorizo.

    Mmk Saltenas is the best! Chicken, veg, and some serious spice!

  • The Feast

    It's not the fanciest of places (and that's an understatement), but the Chilean empanada with chopped beef, spices, egg, and raisins isn't to be missed.

    Great for a late night snack or to-go lunch. Grab the Chilean or turkey with spring onion and head to the Circle for some people watching.
