i went through hell and a handbasket to ask for something with no cheese, no dairy, no animals, and when i finally got the spinach/tofu empanada and took it home dude gave me the broccoli with ricotta and mozarella. come on!! also, those little things are way overpriced.

This food is authentic and very close to the empandas made in southern america I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves spanish food

In a word: flavorless. For people who know what empanadas are, don't go here. For people who don't know what empanadas are, please don't think that these empanadas are representative of the real thing.

just had this 3 nights ago after a 2 year hiatus due to moving out to the burbs and was pleased to see that the quality hadn't diminished. going again tonight!

I went into ruben's empanadas on Fulton, and although their menu states the veggie chili is vegan, the cashier told me that there is egg brushed onto all the empanadas, and that there is butter in the dough, has anyone else had this problem? They shouldn't advertise falsely if this is true.

its a new location, big spot, but happens to have the poorest of the franchise food. dont get me wrong, i like reubens a lot but this spot is definitely not one of my favs. i prefer the soho location, even the location closer to the seaport because you get a homey feel and more home made taste. everything about this location screams fast food especially the fact that you see them microwave your order and the empanadas look nothing like the other locations.

I had wanted to try these crusty little dough pillows for awhile, and finally had my chance, choosing a spinach, tofu, and nutmeg empanada for a price that was pretty decent (a bit more than $4) but a little irritating when I bit into a cool empanada (despite its having been placed in a heater). Oh well, for what it's worth, I could taste the nutmeg, which I wasn't expecting, and the dough was good too. I think I'll pass next time, however.
