My friend was craving seafood so we stopped in and got some shrimp empanadas. They were OK but tasted a little like grease. That might be because we got there kind of late and perhaps it was old oil. There was a decent amount of shrimp in each empanada and they were in a flavorful sauce that reminded me of a shrimp soup broth. The empanadas came with a sauce that looked like mayo-ketchup but tasted as though it had a twist of chipotle. It was pretty good with the empanadas full review

This place is the one I always prefer. I eat in a lot of restaurants but here I constantly return again and again. The stuff is very helpful and the cuisine they serve is so delicious. I never miss an opportunity to have a good meal in this place. I highly recommend this place.

If you're in this neighborhood and looking for good Latin American food, please skip the nearby Tasty Tacos and come here instead. The free chips and salsa (with two types of salsas and ceviche included) are phenomenal and the seafood dishes are unique. One dish, that I've yet to try, is served inside a halved pineapple! But don't worry if you're not into seafood; there are a lot of other options as well, including chicken, fish, and steak tacos that I come for at least once full review
