Lunch: On a busy corner of South Broadway, Maria Empanada is an oasis of deliciousness and charm. Empanadas come from the ovens morning to night, both sweet and savory. The menu also includes veggie-filled "tartas" made from an old family recipe, as well as Spanish tortillas made with organic eggs. There's a limited selection of wine and beer to pair with these Argentine delights. Nothing fancy here–the empanadas come in a basket that you take to the table yourself. The whole place opens up to the sidewalk and there are tables outside, though the traffic somewhat diminishes the appeal of sitting there. Nothing, however, diminishes the excellent empanadas and friendly ambience of the place.

Local Expert Christine Loomis Says:
Lunch: "If you're next door at Former Future Brewing Co., you can order empanadas to eat at the brewery's airplane-wing bar."
Best Restaurants: "It may not look like a place that serves wine and beer but it does, and both pair beautifully with the savory, fresh-baked empanadas."
Best for Lunch Because: Maria's focuses primarily on one thing, empanadas, and does so with artistry and perfection.
Recommended as Best Restaurants Because: Not every great restaurant is upscale and pricey. Maria Empanada offers excellent food and service in a low-key atmosphere at a very affordable price.
