    new smores empanada is amazing! The perfect blend of chocolate and melted marshmallows mixed with graham crackers! It's one of those most expensive empanadas on the menu, but totally worth the $1.75!

    If you are into some fried goodness here is your place. They have astonishing amounts of flavors into different types of empanada doughs. You can have sweet and savory. From traditional do Dearing.

    Sometimes they take too long but the empanadas are delicious. Make sure to get with red/green hot sauce, and try the Empanda de Maduro y Queso, basically Plantains & Cheese (w/ powdered sugar on top)!

    Amazing Empanadas, only like 50 kinds though, have fun picking! More importantly pick your sauce! Salsa Verde/Rojo/Rosada? A little pink and a lot of green pica for me please! Get Hawaiiana as dessert

    Try the Mac and Cheese Empanada ($1.25). "Elbow pasta is mixed with a cheesy sauce that, depending on who you are, will channel either your inner child or inner stoner." Read more

    The chicken parmigiana wheat flour empanadas are so good! The corn flour ones are crunchier than the wheat ones. The green sauce is slightly spicy and delicious.

    Try the cheeseburger, cheese (made with corn), chicken and spicy meat. Also try the muzzarepa. Cheap and tasty.

    If you can't find any parking nearby, park across the street at the Rite-Aid parking lot. Go in for a few minutes and then leave to pick up your order when it's ready.

    It's a local chain (I saw another on Roosevelt Avenue), but it's great. I wish I was hungry enough for more than just two.
