This place IS the place to get real empanadas when not in Argentina. They are totally how Argentine empanadas Buenos Aires style are supposed to be! Authentic tapas de empanadas (the dough part), and baked, not deep fried :-)
The service is very good every time I was there! The parking is something to frown about though, but hey, we're there for the food, so...
Oh! While there, might as well pick up some Argentine foodies and snacks (thy also go auth deli meats, cheese, etc). They also got Yerba Mate, and the last time I was there, I bought bombilla to sip mate (or any loose leaves tea). But the bombilla is just a nostalgic side note, heh heh. But the empanadas....YUM!!! I've been empanadas deprived for a very long time, then few weeks ago when I went to LA and just had to stop by. The food quality is still as GOOD (yes, it's THAT good). I so wanted to buy all the empanadas there to bring back home ;_;
* for those reading this tip and noticed something familiar. Yes, I reviewed this restaurant on Yelp before :-)
Relaxing Atmosphere, good food – This is a down-home feeling place. It is Argentine, but any Latin American will feel at home. At first I got irked there, by the slow service, but you can bring your own wine, theyll give you an opener, and no corkage fee. Ive never had the pasta, because I go straight for the rib eye steak for $12. Its nice quality and very enjoyable.
Make sure you know the hours of operation. They won't take orders for steak after 7:30 most nights, and 4:30 on Sundays. If you get there after that, you'll have to order an empanada or something else from the deli.
