Kentucky is known for bourbon and barbecue, and while there are many places in the Bluegrass where one can go for a killer bourbon margarita or even barbecue tacos, our state isn’t exactly known for classic Mexican cuisine. So when we say we’ve found the best empanadas in the state — at a Northern Kentucky tiki bar of all places — you know it’s a dish worth seeking out.

Have you been to Kon-Tiki on the Levee before? Did you know this Northern Kentucky tiki bar served the best empanadas in the state? Ché’s empanadas are truly on another level, and the perfect compliment to a tropical cocktail!
