Excellent Empanadas, i lived on East Coast for over three decades and i had the opportunity to taste many different Empanadas (including my girlfriend's mother). Those are the best.

We had several different varieties of their empanadas and they were all great! The portions are huge though, I shared a meal with my almost 5 year old and we still had leftovers.

While visiting my daughter we drove to Mesa to eat at this empanadas restaurant I had seen on an episode of DDD. I had told my daughter about it and she tried it out last year and said it was good. I was not disappointed!...More
