Description

OC Weekly's Description

Empanada Man prepares its steaming eponym upon order, so it'll be a while before you can start debating whether to order a fourth or fifth one for the journey home. Chicken and beef empanadas are mini-stews of joy, the meats moist and accompanied by corn kernels in the former, hard-boiled egg slices in the latter. The spinach and potato selections are the edible equivalent of Argentina's gold-medal-winning Olympic soccer squad: rough, earthy, at first unimpressive, but ultimately a winner. And the tangy dance the ricotta cheese empanada stomps upon your palate is worthy of a Gardel croon.

    Good empenadas. Try a selection as 14+ different ones on the menu. Excellent BBQ pizza with cilantro!

    This place has excellent food! I had three different types of empanadas today, but they have sandwiches, pasta, pizza, and tons more stuff. Gonna go again for sure!

  • Jazmin C. on 05/25/13

    No delivery 'til after 5! Go for the saltenas.

  • Holly W. on 10/24/11

    Italian wedding soup is a bit bland
