    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.

    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.)

    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.

    a tiny hole-in-the wall place with fresh and tasty empanadas. Perfect for a quick bite. Cash only on orders below $10!

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

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

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

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

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

    You must try the chicken ones, but skip the spinach. I go there on all my dc trips.

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