This is a thriving business that makes empanada's. These are yummy hand held entrees. I would love to give this a 5 star, however, felt the price was a bit expensive for what you get. The empanada's are freshly made and many to choose from....More

I enjoy the empanadas very much at Maria Empanadas. Having traveled all over Argentina, these are quite authentic and very good. Their location on S.Broadway is charming, and the restaurant is quite popular. The only suggestion I have is for friendlier service at the counter.
