A small restaurant with much Latin flavor! These empanadas are delicious little pockets of amazing. No need to snack off the chips and salsa; it's not worth filling yourself to not be overfilled with this menu. The spicy chicken has just the right amount of kick and the beef are fully seasoned with just a hint of juice. The spinach and feta is creamy and truly watering to the mouth.

Empanadas Mama is definitely one of the must-east of Hell's Kitchen. I've never tried the dine-in experience, but their empanadas are just great. The Shredded Beef empanada is simple, but delicious; generally every empanada I ever tried was consistently good. If you're looking for a tasty snack or meal at very reasonable price at impossible hours, Empanada Mama will not fail you! The only thing to factor in, is the wait: there's a constant line of people waiting, especially on popular nights (Saturdays and Fridays).

Delicious empanadas. The menu is amazingly extensive with different empanadas and they're all tasty (or at least the ones I've tried). Very casual feel to the place, which is nice for a quick but still sit-down dinner.

My first visit there was good. Waited a lot longer than told. Then empanadas were definitely delicious. They have the best apple cider I've ever had. Arepas were also very good! I ordered 7 empanadas to go, they brought the wrong ones, they corrected it and when it was too late I realized they had only made 6. Definitely will come again but the service should be improved on.

I'm so addicted to their Passion Fruit Juice (w/ water) shake, arroz con pollo or shrimp, chocolate empanada and guava & cheese empanada for dessert!!! Hummm I would totally recommend this place to anyone! :P~~~~

The quality of the food is fantastic (you'll know this because there's usually a line waiting to get in) , but the portions are way too small for what they charge. I had my meal (arroz con pollo) and half of my wife's meal (thankfully she wasn't too hungry that night) and I was STILL left feeling unsatisfied. Not cool. For $20ish per entrée, I expect to be full. Definitely try their hot apple cider.

This 24 hour spot is always good for the late night cravings. Not so quick service but amazingly tasty food. The staff is just as spicy as the ingredients in the food.

Restaurant. Best for late night drunk food. Empanadas are pretty decent even when you're sober though. 2 of those and sharing a chips and guac will do the trick. Tips: *Tip was automatically included the last time, in a state of inebriation Shuyang tipped on top of the existing tip. Try not to repeat his mistake.
