This is a no-frills empanada shop, like one that you can find all over LA. However, what it lacks in decor it makes up for it in the quality of the food and the price. Most items are less than $2 and everything tastes fantastic. My favorites are the Cubana and the Hawaiian, and the Elvis dessert empanada. The staff is friendly and quick. They could gussy the place up a little with photos or knickknacks, but you'll be so occupied with your empanadas that you won't even notice. Go now!
