Meat and or fruit/cheese filled empanadas in/near Pomona/Chino area, the Covinas, East SGV, or IE. I already know about Portos, all of them and worldempanadas.com. Driving to East Valley or ELA or Glendale not always an option.

Maybe a Mexican/Latino bakery that might make them. Those of you who have had empanadas know what I'm talking about.

Looking forward to fruitful replies.

        It's a market... a few supplies, meat counter, soda case, deli, and great empanadas. I'd definitely give it a shot. The only knock I have with them is it seems like they raise their prices every couple of months.

          I think because the title of thread does not clearly state what you are looking for, people aren't clicking on it. I know I didn't want to. I hate being"forced" to decide if I want to read a thread. It's possible someone with extensive empanada knowledge just isn't clicking this thread because they don't know what it is about. My two cents.

              Baja Ranch Market in Monrovia have both the meat and cheese/fruit ones. They are good. I am currently in love with their Cuban black beans & rice and their Chile Colorado!
