We've had our share of empanadas, and these are some of the better ones we've had. The tango and mushroom ones were our favorites. Two make a nice lunch. The alfajor was very yummy as well. There is a good maté service as well.

Really - these were the best empanadas I have has in a restaurant. Quality ingredients, friendly service, and wonderful dipping sauces. We took 6 adults and 6 kids - all agreed that Maria Empanadas was the best around!

One of my favorite spots. Ordered beef, ham&cheese, corn, spinach, mushroom. 1 per person would be enough, I ate 2. I especially like corn!

We came to Maria after having empanadas and alfajores in Boulder. I don't know which is more authentic, but the other place was better. Just more flavor in the empanadas, and the alfajores were hard and the cookie to dulce de leche ratio was off...More
