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
Great pastry shell but generally mediocre filling. Go with the Jamaican, which is delicious, otherwise, Chilean is okay while turkey and spinach suck.
Great for grab and go. Eat outside in the plaza or dupont
the empanadas are fresh, delicious and a great price!
Good empanadas but desert empanadas not worth it.
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!
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.
Salteñas too spicy... Regular
Small place to take and go really good, the chilean style empanadas are really good and the apple empanadas are amazing! Like.
affordable & fresh
The perfect kind of food to fill your belly after a full night of drinks with friends.
Chilean empanadas. Get them!
SO spicy! But delicious when you need something quick and handheld. Line looks long, but moves fast. I prefer chorizo.
Get the Chilean empanada! It's awesome
Pulled pork empanada is great with the green hot sauce!
Stop by for some nomnom empanadas. More tips & pics @ nomnomboris.com
Great empanadas, the chorizo empanada is da Bomb!
The Jamaican is the tits
The pear almond sweet empanadas are divine! The staff is very friendly too.
Cash only. ATM inside though!
Try the vegetarian...and remember its ingredients are posted on the whiteboard!
Mmk Saltenas is the best! Chicken, veg, and some serious spice!
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.
Go here when drunk.
Luv luv luv the turkey spring onion...great late night snack or quick dinner pre partying:)
Try the Saltena!! Ask for "The pair" for dessert. Franco is the best!!! Awesome service!!
Lots of stupid drunk people to watch at night. Beware the pukers!
Geat empanadas! the jamaican empanada is flavored but not spicy. Saltena with spring onions is also pretty good
You must try the chicken ones, but skip the spinach. I go there on all my dc trips.
Beware or embrace the late night view
the worst Cash Only empanadas you can eat EVEN when your drunk... Avoid the flavorless!
Their daily special: 1 savory empanada, 1 sweet and a large soda $5.50
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.
Saltenas and a beet salad
Turkey w/ spring onion is great, and try the rice pudding!
go jamacian or go home.
best empanadas in town. quick too.
