Editorial Review – Since 1975, this local favorite has been offering a hefty selection of empanadas, soups, rice and beans and more, most of which can be had for less than $5.
Soooo Good. – I've only ever had the Spicy Chicken Empanadas (Though several times). the reason being, they're addicting. I get cravings for them. so good and addicting. 2 of them fill me up for an easy $7 lunch. the cheapes i can find in Soho.
Good finger food for the discerning foodies... – Portable and delicious are the best way to describe the empanadas. They have a diverse selection of empanadas for a wide variety of tastes. Anything wiith meat and cheese would have made me happy. Good and filling snack to walk and talk with or to enjoy a leisure lunch time. They do have seats inside but it gets crowded quickly.
Good food, good people. – There's a neon sign that reads good food in the window. That's what they serve here. Everything is good. $3.50 is worth it for a tasty empanada in SoHo. The service is also really friendly. They make it feel like a real neighborhood place. Thanks Mo!
great food, but expensive – they have awesome empanadas...but i think they're a bit too pricey.....$3.50-$4.00 for a rather small empanada is pretty expensive, considering the fact that it is more a take-out kind of place than an actual restaurant....
Filled with goodness, but no so filling – Had 2 empanadas that were very good. I probably need to eat 3 to satisfy my lunchtime hunger. I understand the need to charge more because of the location, but $3.50 is a bit much for one empanada that's smaller than a beef patty. I'll go back when I'm in the mood for a little something.
Empanada-riffic – Best empanadas in town, hands down. Friendly staff, to boot. Check this place out!
