I did not expect this to be nearly as good as it is. The lowly empanada, derided by many, adored by few. Okay, no one thinks much about empanadas, one way or another. The mother of my roommate at university made them, and they were...More

On a friday night with every other place packed we decided to go for a 6 piece combo pack. Served quickly and with a smile, we had a great meal! Very very very tasty empanadas. Wish they were available closer to home!

Great food! Great service. Only downside is that they don't serve beer. They have great options for meat lovers and vegetarians. Each empanada has different flavor and interesting combinations

Great selection and a unique choice for lunch in the Dupont Circle area. The restaurant and washrooms were very clean, the service quick and helpful, and the place filled with locals. Eat here for lunch.

My family loves to look for local finds that don't break the bank and have great flavor. Boy, did we find a gem. Great homemade flavors and their empanadas are not fried, they are baked. The sauces pair very well. And they have dessert empanadas...More

Panas specializes in Latin fusion gourmet empanadas, crescent- shaped turnovers, stuffed with well seasoned combinations of meats, vegetables, spices, fruits, and sweets. Our recipes are inspired by the idea of Latin Fusion cuisine; a culinary concept based on creating new recipes by combining traditional and modern culinary techniques and mixing ingredients from different countries in the Americas. The only empanadas’ tradition we want to preserve is that empanadas a great idea and fun package for food.
