Our Story


DelSur Empanadas, the Twin Cities’ first Argentinian Empanada restaurant, opened for business on Thursday, November 8th 2018.

Owned and operated by Argentine natives Diego Montero and Nicolas Nikolov, also owners of the successful DelSur Empanadas and Lomitos Food Truck since 2014.

Nico and Diego have shared a friendship for many years, but it is their passion for their culture that inspired these two friends to bring to Minneapolis a piece of their beloved Argentina through its cuisine. 

Their background in traditional family owned neighborhood restaurants back home in the cities of Cordoba and Buenos Aires respectively, give Diego and Nico the perfect balance of formal culinary education and experience. 

The best of South American cooking, right out of the oven, with fresh dough made daily, DelSur’s empanadas are completely made from scratch, handcrafted individually, and freshly baked.

The menu features a a base of 10 standard empanadas (including gf and Herbivorous Butcher vegan) with an additional 5 or more that rotate throughout the seasons. Argentine’s favorite, the Filet Mignon sandwich known as “Lomito” along with the chorizo delight “Choripan”, a variety of salads, desserts and beverage options which include beer and wine complete the menu.

The Empanadas


Empanadas are simple, tasty and convenient. Their popularity has spread beyond the traditional countries like Argentina to become truly international.


Wherever you travel in Argentina, you’re never more than a few yards away from an empanada and you’re all the better for it.


Empanada literally means “wrapped in bread” but this description does not do justice to the wonder of this Argentine staple. But don't make the mistake of believing all empanadas are created equal.


With fresh dough made daily, DelSur's empanadas are all made from scratch and handcrafted individually, meeting the highest standards of quality, freshness and seasonality while combining modern-creative and traditional Argentinian styles of cooking.
