What does this place sell? Tortas and jugos, you fool. It’s right there in the name, and when you walk inside, you’ll see walls plastered with descriptions of various juices and sandwiches (as well as other stuff like tacos, burritos, and chicken nuggets). Order your food in the back, then get your juice and pay for everything at the register up front. If you do this correctly, you should wind up with a quality juice topped with a chunk of pineapple and a dense, steaming torta packed with various types of meat. Eat here several times a week.

Suggested by our writers
As we’re all well aware, Mexican food in Manhattan generally blows. Empellon hasn’t come to save the day, but it isn’t adding to the problem either. While nothing blew us away, the food was solid with the good outweighing the bad.
