If you’re really good at something, why not be the best? Lito’s Empanadas knows what I’m talking about. Empanadas, a South American turnover stuffed with a variety of fillings and cooked in oil, are Litos’ sole specialty. The small menu may only consist of eight different kinds of empanadas, but surprisingly, that’s more than enough variety to keep you coming back for more of these addictive things. Particularly tasty are the spinach, filled with spinach, mozzarella, and onion; the chicken, filled with chicken, tomato, onion, and rice; and the barbecue pork. There’s even a chocolate and banana version for dessert. Even better is the fact that they are really filling and pretty cheap, so for $5, you can grab a couple of empanadas and stuff yourself with goodness.
