The empanadas were really good especially the de carne. We tried a few kinds and they were good but that was our favorite. Also the desert empanadas were good. The service was good. We had a great time and will come back

We had a great time at this new spot in OTR. Our server, Betsy was wonderful and helpful with the menu. Plenty of food, not small tasting plates as so many OTR restaurants have that leave you hungry. We will be back. Management efficiently handled a situation with a loud bar patron and assured us a pleasant evening. We appreciated how quickly they handled this situation quietly.

Wow to the empanadas! Our waiter, Mack, was awesome and had so much energy! We can’t wait to come back and have Mack sing us some Frank Sinatra over Korean BBQ and Caprese.

Really enjoyed our second time in two weeks. I had the Che Burger and really liked it. My wife had 4 empanadas + side and could only eat three. Great value for the money and really cool ambiance. Hint: If you like more environment, upstairs is your place. We ate downstairs this time and really liked the quieter opportunity. Thanks!

A fun experience. Empanadas need more filling of substance. The Caprese empanada tasted good, but had no hint of tomato, and the filling cheese was cream colored. Mozerella is white, not yellow. Unfortunately, they had run out of the Crab Rangoon one, which is what we wanted to order. A price of $ 4.50 each for an empanada is a bit too high for a small item. Brunch offers 3 for $ 12.00, but not at other times. Should stick with that on all their menus. They sell more and make more money that way. All the serving staff was warm and welcoming. Service was great. Ordered a cup of soup, but received and was charged for a bowl. The container was small for a bowl, so we didn't realize that until the bill came, so we didn't say anything. Very good soup, though. Décor is rustic and fun. We'll try it again, but it is a bit pricey for what is being offered.
