What a perfect snack or meal. They come in a variety of fillings and sizes. They also have very good Cuban sandwich and deviled crab. Everything on the menu is inexpensive.

Spanish version of fast food, these empanadas are tasty and have lots of selections. I like the Picadillo (seasnoned ground beef) and the guava and cream cheese ones best. And get a Cafe Con Leche while you wait for pickups. They have good party trays...More
