Wonderful hole in the wall. Menu is your choice of 15 different Empanadas. They are $2.99 each. For an average lunch 2 are good to fill you up. We had the brisket and chorizo. This place is #1 for a reason.

Visiting for business, and saw this place on Trip Advisor. Very friendly service, I was waited on immediately. I got the Cheesesteak, Brisket, Spinach and Ricotta. All were delicious. Food was made fresh. I highly recommend for a good fast meal.
