Place that specializes in only empanadas

I've been looking for a restaurant that takes empandas seriously. Kinda like Sarah's Empanadas in Durham, NC (http://www.yelp.com/biz/sarahs-empana...)

They serve the empanadas as a main [plus rice/beans] rather than an app. Is there anywhere in Chicago that does this?

      A few blocks south of 5411 empanadas on Clark St is Lito's Empanadas. I think the empanadas here are Colombian vs 5411 which is Argentinian.

        Mekato's Bakery on Lincoln Ave. has great Columbian baked goods.


        And then you can make rice & beans at home . . . .

        Great place. Just wanted to mention it, even tho it's not precisely what you asked for.
