This place is REAL! Stopping in after years of driving past it. The entrance is on the side of a building which is kinda tricky during high traffic hours. Anyhow the empanadas are amazing! First authentic empanadas had in All of LA, and yea, we've...More

I found this place by accident, driving by on Sawtelle. They offer a variety of empanadas for $3.50 a piece. It was good food and friendly service. A family-run business who seems to love what they do. I believe they had sandwiches as well, but...More

I first patronised this place about 16 years ago and stumbled across it when driving by. Came in to order take-out empanadas for lunch. They're good but value is questionable: $3.38 each. Maybe that's seen as reasonable for L.A. but the empanadas weren't that great....More

My favorite is the Arabe - yummy lemony ground beef goodness. Small place but good food. Convenient location - right by the freeway. But parking could be hard to find.

I pick these up as carryout and take them to people's houses for parties, they go fast!! The empanadas are so good, I can honestly eat them for every meal. Try out all the flavors, but beef and ham/cheese are still my favorites.

I have been going here since 1999. Always quality and good value. One of my favorite places in the area for a quick bite. You can't go wrong and it makes great for catering as well.
