Amazing empanadas! More so the gaucho (meat) ones, the Cuzco (veggie) ones are mostly corn, so if youre not a fan of corn, pass on them. Sauce served with them is great, and empanada dough tastes amazing! Very good take on Argentine empanadas!

This place had the best empanadas! The store was no too busy when we arrived and the food came out quick. The owner was extremely nice and helpful. I highly recommend!

I ate here in December. The service was fast and friendly. The empanadas were great for the price. Easy to eat for cheap here :)

Based on everyone's reviews, we were expecting more. The restaurant itself is not that great (lack of space, an old fast food restaurant), but I figured the food would make up for it. The flavor combinations were a bit bland and odd and tasted like American food more than Argentinian empanadas.

I drove right by this place far too many times.What I found when I finally stopped ....yum. The best meat sandwich in the Treasure Valley. Buy a Gaucho when you're hungry and the comfort food memories will flood your mind. Then do an apple for desert ...oh my!

This is easily the best value for indulgent food in Boise. I have eaten here several times, tried several empanadas, and have loved every delicious bite. They do have sandwiches if you are with a group and want something not deep fried. I have never tried them, because their empanadas are so frickin' good! If you try nothing else, you... More
