I became friends with two sisters who came from Argentina when I was in college. They brought homemade beef empanadas in for our Spanish class a couple of times, and I thought they were the best thing I'd ever eaten. Ruben's beef empanadas were virtually identical- delicious! They have several other flavors including chicken, sausage, and various vegetable & meat combinations.
I've visited the Ruben's on Fulton and also on 8th Ave. in Chelsea. Both places are very small, and aren't fancy in any way. I understand that there are a couple more Ruben's in NYC as well. The place on 8th Ave. has a couple of different "Happy Hour" (evening) combos that include and empanada & salad, or an empanada and a glass of wine.
