    Love the lightness of the crust on their empanadas. Don't leave without at least one Argentine.

    Made the mistake. Ordered the sweet one with cranberries apples and Nutella . Should have tried the short rib? Wish they just had Nutella!

    Kind of small, but the short rib empanada was delicious!

    I didn't like the short rib. Maybe I didn't get the fresh ones.

    Do not get a soda ... A can will add 2 bucks ... Get it from another vendor for a dollar or less. Stick to the three empanadas for 8 bucks special

    rookie award winner at 2013 Vendys. try the out! short rib is the bomb!

    They have a quasi-perminant truck in Times Square, so if you do find yourself in that horrible part of town, these empanadas are the best thing around. It's relatively tourist-free too. YUM!

    Delicious empanadas, a bit small though. I had three, probably should have gotten 4 or 5

    Delicious snacks! The sweet one tastes like thanksgiving. Mmm. The savory argentine empanadas also a winner.

    Very delicious, affordable empanadas. I had one of each of the veggie options (3) and OH MAN they were amazing. For 3 empanadas and a soda, it was $10. I was in and out in a few minutes. Will be back.

    "Give the Portobello one a chance! Yes, it's on the Veggie menu, but it is fantastic. You can quote me on that." -me

    Best empanadas around Times Square area. Great deal...get 3 empanadas and a drink for only $10. Great deal in Times Square!

    Shit was mad burnt..... Tasteless inside too.

    Delish but too tiny to make lunch out of unless you want to shell out $12 for 4 tiny empanadas. Empanadas are usually much larger, was surprised when I saw mine!!

    What is the trucks location

    Short rib empanada is so good it's not even fair.

    If you're looking for something quick, inexpensive and delicious, you can't go wrong here. Everything I've tried is excellent and takes less than a minute (or two - max) to serve.

  • Michael G.

    The three people staffing this mediocre food truck had me waiting 15 minutes for 3 empanadas only saying it would be 'two minutes'. I wouldn't recommend their food and their service is extremely poor

    Good selection of veggie empanadas...customer service is like their hot sauce, non-existent.

    I tried this truck in front of my office bldg (Time Inc). All the meat empanadas were sold out, leaving just the portobello and shiitake options. I bought one of each. Delicious. Snazzy truck too.

    Dee Phunk · July 19, 2012
  • Nancy C.

    A good snack when you're not too hungry. Agree with everyone's rec about the short rib..definitely a yummy choice. Also had the jumbalaya, which is spicier if you need that extra kick.

    I love the short ribs empanada. Just out standing. The portobello was incredible too. 3 for $10 with a soda. Best deal in Times Square.
