Popped in with grumbling hungry tummies on our way back to the Metro nearby. The selection is excellent, both savory and sweet choices. Plus carne and veggie fillings. Service was helpful and kind, place was clean and bright. Perfect!!!!

Well decorated, small empanadas shop in DuPont circle. Our hotel was a few steps away. Stopped in for a combo. Well priced. Good variety. Drips (dipping sauces were yum too). Will def stop by again the next time I'm craving empanadas. Cheers!!

I went here because I had never heard of Empanadas. It was not busy on an early weekday evening so service was rapid. I had the 4 Empanadas combination meal which was just about right for dinner for one. You order by the two letter abbreviation of the fillings that you want (there are both savoury and sweet). The same two letters are printed into the pastry so you know which is which.
The fillings were variable - tuna was great, as was the beef. However the ham and cheese had absolutely no ham at all. They were tasty and seemed to have good ingredients. The Empanadas are cooked from frozen - three were piping hot, but one was still cold in the centre.
So definitely and interesting dining experience which I enjoyed, however although nice it was not gourmet in my book. Will go back if I am passing and in need of a snack.

We tried a few of their empanadas and all were quite good. They are on the small side so you may need a few if you want to fill up, but they offer combo meals.
They also have fresh juice. We tried the Lulo which is supposedly a kiwi like fruit. It was very good. The customer service was also great. We would definitely go back.
