On paper, Empanada Joe’s sounds like a great concept: Give classic empanadas a healthful spin with good-for-you fillings, and price them cheap enough so customers won’t stop at one. But the execution at this bright, spare fast-food joint makes you long for greasy street-cart pastry. Lukewarm, chewy turnovers hold miserly quantities of bland fillings like egg and cheese for breakfast, chicken and peppers for dinner, and chocolate-banana for dessert. Because offerings are so inexpensive an empanada here costs less than a frappuccino crowds pack the place nonetheless, taking seats at bolted-down stools to chow down at the stainless-steel counter around the pale-yellow room.
