Go-Go Fresh Food Cafe stands out in South Beach as a healthful and affordable option. Go-Go has a pretty simple menu: mini salads, big salads, homemade soups that change daily, and the famous Go-Go Pies ($2.50). The stuffing of these pies, also known as empanadas, is vast with options ranging from classic Argentine to Philly cheesesteak to Thai peanut chicken to eggplant parmigiana. Each pie has perfectly flaky crust and is stuffed to the brim with flavor.

You can also build your very own salad with more than 60 ingredients to choose from, that they will toss for you on the spot. In this fast casual restaurant you can be in and out quickly with delicious healthy and fresh choices that won't harm your South Beach bod or break the bank.
Tips from foursquare
This place rocks! Soup, Salad, & Empanadas (pies) are all delicious. The must try salad is the "Shrimp Mini", it's delicious.
This place is actually at 926 Alton Rd, on the west side of the beach.
The best empanadas on the beach!
One of my favorite placed to eat on south beach. Empanadas are amazing, my favorite is the spicy thai peanut..give it a try
Hands down the best empanadas in South Beach! The Thai Peanut Chicken, Meatball & Provolone, and Nutella & Banana are not to be missed. They also have an excellent salad menu - shrimp mini FTW! #CPL8
