    You can get their empanadas baked if you like. A great option if you're trying to eat healthier/better.

    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!

    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)!

    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.
