this place is now closed down. they cut the price in half, along with the size of the empanada. I think this was their downfall. Oh well, onto the next restaurant.

The BEST empanadas we've ever had! Such an interesting variety too. My husband loved the Sunny Goat while I thought the Spinach was the best.

When we travel to the east or west from the Midwest we like to eat good empanadas. Papa Luna's definitely fit the bill and has three locations. The average empanada is $4 and two empanadas is just about right.

My wife and I love empanadas. Tried this place when it opened on Colombia in downtown SD. The empanadas are great. And they are baked, not fried. I had jamon y queso and the beef empanadas. My wife had the corn and the vegetarian empanadas....More
