El Sur's mission is to bring people together and create lasting memories over shared, authentic food. Not only are our empanadas handmade, we only use the best ingredients from local purveyors who share our emphasis on quality. After we make them, our empanadas are delivered with speed, reliability, and convenience, directly to your door and ready to bake.
