Reviews for O'LaLa Empanadas

Service is basic. Food is overpriced. Waiting time is ridiculous!!!!! I ordered two empanadas and veggie arroz chaufa. Was told waiting time will be about 10 minutes. 40 minutes later and I am still here! Of course waiting is annoying, but it’s worse when you tell me 10 min and is not.

I was pleasantly surprised. I ordered one cheese, one chicken and side of plantains. The chicken was delicious, it was juicy and seasoned well. The cheese was just okay, it didn't have a lot of cheese so just kinda tasted like fried bread. The plantains were hot and delicious, they were also big in portion size. My only regret is that I didn't order 2 chicken instead of the cheese. I would definitely order again.

First time here and I'm in love! I had the Mardi Gras empanada (Cajun chicken) and El Coqui (pulled pork and sweet plantain) empanada, and my mom had the Greek Goddess (spinach and cheese) empanada. Soooo good! Everything tasted amazing, and I love the dough they use for their empanadas. We also tried the Caribbean Sensation which was Mango & Passionfruit juice - so delicious. Definitely recommending this place to anyone looking for a quick but very tasty bite!!
