El Meson is kicking off Labor Day weekend early by hosting Empanada Fest at its restaurant on East Dixie Drive in West Carrollton.

Starting Wednesday, and continuing through Saturday, Sept. 3, guests will have a chance to try a variety of housemade empanadas.

“It all started when we were serving Bacon Empanadas at Kettering’s ‘Bacon Fest’,” said Bill Castro, owner of El Meson. “We started thinking about all of the other creative empanadas that we could make and decided to create this limited special menu for everyone to try this week!”

From a “Bacon Empanada” to a gluten free “Colombian Veggie Empanada” the restaurant will be offering a total of seven different empanadas in addition to their standard fare.

“We have had empanadas on the menu for a long time, but we were excited to take this Labor Day weekend as an opportunity for our chefs to get creative with this customer favorite item,” Castro said. “We’re very excited to serve a large variety of different empanadas, both meat and vegetarian, for all of our guests to enjoy.”

Guests will be able to order empanadas for their table or they can create a meal for themselves.

Empanada Fest starts at 4 p.m. daily. Reservations are highly encouraged.
