Inside the Kitchen: Lazo Empanadas

Lazo Empanadas has been feeding Denver, Colorado with delicious empanadas since 2016. Inspired by the owner’s Argentinian roots, the empanadas are perfectly cooked and baked with love.

The Restaurant

Lazo Empanadas started in 2016 by founder and CEO Francois Saber after he noticed that empanadas were becoming trendy and there was a gap in the Colorado market. Lazo Empanadas originally started out as a wholesale company that distributed their empanadas to local businesses but quickly grew once customers got a taste of the delicious food. As the company continued to grow he decided to branch out and started offering the empanadas at local events, where the feedback was overwhelmingly positive.

After seeing the rave reviews, Saber decided to open restaurants that specialize in serving customers with their famous empanadas. They currently have one location in Denver, Colorado but plan to expand. Located on 22nd Street, this is the perfect spot to stop on your way to a game for a quick meal that isn’t like traditional fast food filled with preservatives. People don’t just come for the food, Lazo Empanadas also has a friendly staff that makes you feel like you’re sharing an empanada with family. Open 7 days a week, the quaint restaurant is definitely a must try in Colorado.

The Food

All the delicious food is made from scratch and locally sourced but based off of traditional Argentinian recipes offering lots of meats, cheeses and fresh vegetables. The menu highlights their variety of traditional Argentinian empanadas offering steak, chicken, ground beef and vegetarian options like mushroom or spinach and cheese. The empanadas are a little taste of home for the owner Francois Saber as he imports the dough from Argentina to make sure the crust is perfectly flaky and baked with love. Craving something sweet? Lazo Empanadas also offers flavours to satisfy your sweet tooth, like Nutella and banana, caramel, cream cheese and peach and Dulce de Leche. They also have a small dessert menu with delicious treats like Pastafrola, flan with Dulce de Leche and homemade Dulce de Leche alfajor.

The vision of Lazo Empanadas is good food made simple and that’s exactly what they’ve done. People from all over Colorado come to Lazo Empanadas to share a delicious meal together and feel good knowing that they’re eating farm-fresh, non-GMO empanadas. Whether you dine in, take out or choose to have your food delivered, Lazo Empanadas is the perfect go-to spot for your next meal.
