My son and I tried the chicken and cheeseburger empanadas, they were so big and so good! We also ordered a side of sweet potato fries. Delicious! Definitely will be back for more and this place is not too bad of a drive from St Pete.

As a Cuban-American girl I love a good Cuban Sandwich. What is even better than a Cuban Sandwich? One with all it's ingredients in an Empanada! It is simply heaven to my tastebuds. And, let me also mention the tacos. The pork ones are savoring with flavors! I cannot visit Armature Works without getting me some food from Empamammas! Always my first pick when, I am hungry. Beyond delicious!

Every time I go to Armature, the only place I go to is Empamamas! The Bang Bang chicken tenders meal is so good! You get huge tenders and plenty of fries to fill you up! This meal is truly worth every penny. The staff is so nice!

Omg the absolute best thing I ever tasted!!!! I first discovered this heavenly place by reading an article on Narcity USA. Being a Florida native I could not pass up the opportunity to try a CUBAN in empanada form, YUM! Not only is the atmosphere of Armature Works unique and intriguing itself, now I get empanadas?! I couldn't decide so I tried the cheeseburger in paradise as well, let's just say they definitely lived up to the hype!! I drove milesssss for this and worth every second of it!! So happy they are still in business despite our current covid pandemic. Why are you still reading this?! Go get yourself some EMPAMAMAS!!!

Bang Bang Chicken

This dish was absolutely yummy! I do not have anything bad to say about it. I used to love to go to a chain restaurant to eat their Bang Bang shrimp, well about 7 years ago I developed a shellfish allergy and was no longer able to enjoy. I was ecstatic when I saw this dish on IG, when I asked about shellfish and I was informed no seafood was cooked in the kitchen I was overjoyed! I live in Ocala and every couple of months I drive to St. Pete to get my hair was the day I made the stop in Tampa to try out Empamamas! So glad that I did! We ordered the BangBang chicken and ate it there and brought home 1 of each empamamas! Can't wait to try them in a bit....I know I won't be disappointed!!!! I will definitely be back!!

These empanadas are other-wordly! Even if you've never had an empanada I highly recommend Empamama's as a first try! Every time I order the food is hot and the service is friendly - delivery and pick up. The bang bang chicken is fantastic as well. Cheeseburger in Paradise is #1! Keep it up cuties!

Bang Bang Chicken

I'm at Armature a lot and often get asked to recommend a booth. The first one out of my mouth is always Empamamas and I always say not to sleep on the chicken fingers. My go to for sure. If I could live off them, I would. One of my top Armature stalls for sure!

Tampa Girl Empanadas were fabulous, have had them several times, never tasted anything like them. I grew up in Miami on Cuban Sandwich's, and these are even better, also the seasoned fries were perfectly crispy and every time I go to Tampa I ask my daughter to go there.
