The empanadas are made to order. Fresh, piping hot, absolutely delicious! Golden brown crust, light and soft with a Lil crunch on the edges and the fillings are just as tasty. Ordered the spicy chicken, spicy beef, plain beef and beef and cheese, beef and potatoes. They were all equally delicious but the spicy beef was my favorite. The ladies who run the place are lovely and very efficient, the wait was not long all. And you can watch them prep the empañadas right there! I'm definitely going back.

Stella's is a quaint little spot that we visited the first time today. My wife and I got broccoli and cheddar, mozzarella, spicy beef, buffalo chicken and chicken and rice empanadas. Everyone of them was delicious. They were also filling too. Great food and very friendly staff. My wife and I were very happy!

If you want a spot with great Empanadas that are worth your time and money, look no further. Plenty of variety for whatever tastes your look for. They also present a solid variety of vegetarian fillings. As a tip, if you see their tres leches empanada on the menu, don't pass it up.

Nice workers. The empanadas were a little dry and on the small size for the price.

HEALTH ALERT!!! The foam from the container they use melted on the French fries. This releases toxins on the food. I tried letting the owner know there was a problem and she was rude and dismissive. She yelled and hung up the phone on me. She obviously does not care about the safety or quality of their food. The chicken was not edible it had massive amount of tendon. I felt it was my responsibility to let the public know and to warn people of the health hazard they are being exposed to. This is unacceptable! Never again!! Shame on this business!!

Went to our local farmers market (Ramsey NJ) and bought a half dozen chicken and cheddar empanadas. So good!! Definitely will be going back to try others.

I'm on an empanada kick. So, for me it's hard to get a good crispy crust with a perfect moisture filling. Well this may be the place that has the perfect balance. I ordered several different meat, Mac n cheese, and corn. I loved them all , but especially the corn. The sweet corn mixed with the creamy filling and flaky crust could turn me into a vegetarian! Don't forget dessert...
