    I am so glad Open Table suggested Empanada Lady. It was such an unexpected and delightful experience. The food and service were fantastic. I live in VA but I can assure you, I will be back in Baltimore to visit!!

    Came here for Mothers Don’t EVER DO THAT. I had a reservation with the confirmation but when I get here they wasn’t prepared we had to wait another 10 mins to be seated as if they didn’t know about our reservation. The service was poor our waiter didn’t acknowledge us the food wasn’t cooked right. They’re understaffed the kitchen was slow 2hrs waiting for food. We had water on our table for 1hr and half before the appetizer was brought out. The manager then said she can’t take the food we didn’t eat off the receipt.

    The empanadas were delicious and didn’t disappoint. I had the beef , chicken and apple and and was sitting there like a happy fat girl:) The street corn was delicious I just wish it was more. Im glad my calories didn’t go to waste.

    We saw this restaurant featured on 11 News on Sunday morning and decided to take my 84 year old Puerto Rican father there for lunch that day. It was insanely loud with a DC playing music so loud that you couldn’t hear each other talk. It wasn’t even Spanish music. We looked at the menu and there really wasn’t much of anything on it. Sadly, we left so we did not get to taste the empanadas. This place is more of a bar experience. Definitely not a place for anyone over 40. At least that was what it was like on a Sunday afternoon. We will not be going back.

    The service was top tier, and the food was excellent. The drink sizes were a little small. We will be back.
