Empanada Guy

JPKNJ | Jun 4, 2014 04:20 PM

Empanada Guy makes decent empanadas. They are expensive but wife liked them. I have gone there for the last time. Jump off Parkway to bring home some dinner and no truck there. This isn't the first time he was a no show. The point of a lunch truck is to be there for lunch. Went to the restaurant in Freehold three times. Was only open once. I find out he closes to attend festivals. I understand the easy cash but to hurt your regulars doesn't make sense to me. Complained to him on his Facebook page his customer service was even worse. Removed my post and banned me. Said he needed to stop the snow ball effect. Then told me to show up and confront him in person. Not really a smart way to deal with customers. Back to Karini in Perth Amboy or El Familiar in Toms River. They both have treated me well.
