I lived in Argentina for two years so maybe I am a little picky about empanadas, but to pay over 2 dollars for one empanada is ridiculous. Over 30 bucks for a dozen? No thanks. In Argentina you can get a dozen for about 5 bucks.

Had a beef empanada for lunch today. Was a very lovely combination of spices with ground beef, boiled egg, olives (love olives mmmm) & white onions. The flavors went great in harmony, in particular thought the sweet of the onions

My coworker and I checked this place out one night in December to see if the empanadas would be good to have at our company's holiday party. After sharing a plate of about 6 different kinds, we were HOOKED. The delicious little dinner

We love this place for a quick bite to eat. The whole menu is empanadas, but their salad is good as well.

my parents have been taking me here since i was a kid. we'd go into LA or they'd visit me at UCLA and while we stuck in traffic on the 405, wed order and our food would be ready to pick up by the time we'd exit (the restaurant is right off

Pros: food (great finger foods for parties--warm them up a toaster oven, not the microwave), right off the 405

Cons: the atmosphere--its a little dark but i like all the decorations on the wall

I tried all the empanadas except those with beef and I must say they are all delicious...I loved the one with ricotta cheese in it. I'll be back to this place!! A little expensive though because the empanadas are pretty small and u need 3

Pros: empanadas!!

Cons: value, price

This is the best little resturant around. The atmoshphere is very quaint. The food is very reasonabley priced. I reccommend the spinach and cheese or broccli and cheese empanadas. The salad is also very good. In addition the tea is the best I've had.

Heavenly fillings wrapped up in flaky pastry and cooked to a crunchy golden brown. Faves include corn, potato and cheese, criollo (seasoned ground beef with egg and raisins--sounds weird, tastes awesome). Get the cocktail size (only

I love the empanadas here-- the beef and onion is my favorite, but the potato and spinach ones are great, too. The prices have gone up a bit, but I'd still go and order their "dozen" special anytime.

A small family-owned chain of restaurants, this Argentinean eatery is known for the variety of empanadas it serves. The variety of empanadas includes vegetarian options and for those not into fried fare, there are also sandwiches and a very rich flan. The caf is small, but cosy and has quiet ambiance. The staff is efficient and very friendly.

For first timers, like me, Empanada is a deep fried flour shell filled with something. There are plenty of meat and vegetarian options, but little or no options for vegans. If you are like me, you may be tempted to get 3 empanadas, but

Pros: Tasty, Parking lot, Cheap

I love the Empanadas here, of course, but if you're missing Argentina this is such a nice place to go - the decor, the various types of dulce de leche for sale, the alfajores, it's all great. Everyone has been friendly and welcoming to me.

Decent empanadas, but wild horses couldn't drag me back to this place again. Not only was the service non-existent, the counter person was downright rude. I asked for mate and was condescended to and I wasn't even given the watery

If I didnt know any better, Id think these were the best empanadas in the world. Too bad Id already tried the empanadas place in Monrovia. These pale in comparison, though if you live/work on the Westside and youve got the craving, then

I had almost every variety and they're all perfect. Grab a twelve pack and enjoy them at home...if they make it that far. Hand made, cripy on the outside and full of awesome stuff on the inside. You really can't beat the taste for the
