For the most delicious empanadas and pies in Chicago, head to Empanada Mama and the Pie Man at 2933 N. Broadway!
According to the website, the spot’s owners — Oreste and Deon — use only the freshest ingredients in their daily baked pies and empanadas. The duo sources ingredients locally to offer “clean, delicious, homemade food.” They’ve been baking empanadas for seven years. And after trial and error, they’ve perfected their homemade pastry.
On the menu, look for a wide variety of empanadas, savory pies, and deep dish dessert pies. Additionally, the menu offers cookies and beverages. Try the Curried Chicken empanada, which features rotisserie chicken in a rich garam masala curry sauce. Or, go for the BBQ Pork Mac & Cheese pie, with pulled pork in a barbecue sauce on a bed of mac and cheese. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, try the Lobster Mac & Cheese pie, which boasts a large helping of lobster “sandwiched” between macaroni and cheese.
For dessert, don’t miss the Chocolate Pecan & Coconut pie! PPM residents get free whipped cream with every whole pie purchase. Or, get a free Spindrift with every $15 purchase! For more information, check out the website.
