Wow! A Must try- Bringing the Dirty South To BA

Found this restaurant via Pickupthefork.com (a great guide to BA restaurants) and it certainly did not disappoint. Liza & Francisco who own Nola are incredibly welcoming and warm. Went there twice during our stay in BA because it was so good. Had the fried chicken sandwich, fried sweetbreads, amazing local-brewed beers. Great place to check out in BA!

Went for the famous fried chicken waffles and was so disappointed. The waffle was the best waffle I've had, but the fried chicken was just a fried BONE. To give you an estimate on the size it was like 2 tiny chicken wings you eat at a wing bar... And that 'plate' was 90 pesos. Really? The gumbo I had... More

Cosmopolitan Buenos Aires was lacking Creole/Cajun/Southern-inspired food until NOLA came about. First it was a "puerta cerrada" and then it jumped into serving crowds of local and expats alike when it opened its doors to all. Food (gumbo, chicken sandwich, fried chicken and waffles, "mollejitas" [sweetbreads] as to add a local must have, and the day's specials) is picked up... More

Great place for a summer time beer and fried chicken. Went with friends and loved it. They have a good happy hour too. Do not expect anything fancy in terms of service or the space itself but Nola doesn't need that.

I absolutely loved NOLA. It was one of two closed door restaurants I tried in Buenos Aires. The food was exceptional, the drinks were fabulous and I loved trying the home brew they had! The food was delicious, but pretty heavy, so definitely come hungry. The dessert was sooooooooo good too! Would definitely recommend NOLA and if I go back... More

The new orleans themed food was good but very limited. They had just a few choices avaliable. This may be a better drink/late night food place than a place for dinner. The beer was quite nice as was the wine.

Small menu, easy choices. I'd recommend the pollo frito with a side of red beans and rice. Especially if you're sharing! The beer is delicious and get dessert! The pecan pie and blueberry pie are killer.

The only that saved the evening was the good quality beer (not always easy to find in Baires). It is worth going for a pint but not much else. Nola is small with very poor acoustics so it gets very loud as it fills up. The food is basic - fried chicken, gumbo, rice and beans, blueberry pie - the... More

It may sound strange to go to a New Orleans food restaurant in Buenos Aires but this was one of the best restaurants we went to there. The place is small and it is serve yourself (you seat yourself, order at the bar and pick up your food). The fried chicken was delicious as was the rice and beans, beer... More

We loved all of the steak and red wine that BA has to offer, but when we wanted a change of pace we headed to Nola. They've got a great happy hour from 5-8 PM, 30 pesos for pints of local craft beer, and we really enjoyed their IPA and Golden Ale. Their food was just as delicious as their... More
