One of my favorite spots. Ordered beef, ham&cheese, corn, spinach, mushroom. 1 per person would be enough, I ate 2. I especially like corn!

This is a thriving business that makes empanada's. These are yummy hand held entrees. I would love to give this a 5 star, however, felt the price was a bit expensive for what you get. The empanada's are freshly made and many to choose from....More
