THE BEST OF LATIN AMERICAN CUISINE
In the wake of tragedy, the Mambo family is extremely blessed and grateful to be part of such a closed knit local community.
Your support throughout the years have been a driving force to keep us focused and determined to keep improving and giving back.
In the early morning of May 13th, there was a serious fire next door to our mother restaurant, Mambo Tea House which caused significant water damage and some structural damage. Due to COVID-19 paired with the tremendous damages, we made the executive decision to close our doors permanently.
To keep our staff working from Mambo Tea House, we decided to combine both restaurants talented chefs & kitchen staff to better served you at Mambo Empanadas!
This also led to an expanded menu that features many of the popular entrees that Mambo Tea House has offered over the years! We are very excited to see where this leads us!
Thank you again for showing us your love and support during these very difficult times.

LEARN ABOUT MAMBO EMPANADAS AND LATIN BISTRO
Your next meal away from home will be a real treat when you dine on flavorful and tender rotisserie chicken and much more at our Latin American restaurant. The idea for the restaurant came to us about 13 years ago, with the goal of offering more cultural diversity to our town. We focus on empanadas because they are a staple of our native country. What’s different about ours, though, is that we infuse them with ingredients and flavors of the Caribbean and non traditional American (think Mac-n-Cheese and Cheeseburger)!
To provide our customers with great-tasting food, we purchase our produce from local farmers’ markets and always use fresh ingredients that are in-season. We marinate our meats for days to make sure they are flavorful. Stop in soon for great flavors and amazing service in a very cozy and friendly atmosphere.
