Surprisingly good!

Needed a quick bite between errands in an unfamiliar part of New Orleans and pulled up at Izzos out of shear hunger and urgency. We were totally surprised at the great quality of fresh ingredients and the cooked-to-order shrimp quesadillas. Thoroughly recommend it!

Always friendly service-= and the freshest ingredients! I typically get the salad, but nachos and quesadillas look good too- all meat choices are delicious and they have vegetarian options, which is nice. Fresh brewed iced tea and generous portions! Go try it today!!!!

The set up is pretty much like a cafeteria assembly line, but the food was pretty good. :) I ordered a burrito bowl and tore it upppp :) Would definitely go back for a quick lunch.

I was very disappointed with the bland food at this burrito shop. It's just as disappointing as Moe's. Don't bother, nothing worth eatting here.

This is a typical "eat on your lunch break" or "stop while you're shopping" eatery. It is neat, attractive, busy, and fairly fast. The food is good and reasonably priced. I had the ground beef (medium-sized) burrito ($7.99). It was delicious and filling. I would go back and recommend this place to others. RJT

Went for lunch. I like that each employee changes their gloves before they build your burrito. I dislike that they use their hands over the spoons and scoops for the toppings. I don't do dairy and felt like I needed to skip everything after the cheese to avoid cross contamination.

This is your basic burrito joint, like Moes or Chipotle. The food here is good, it was nice and hot. I found the service a bit disorganized. There were 7 people running around bumping into each other in one corner of the line, while the rest of the line was empty. It was kinda slow too. I expect all these... More

This place is really impressive. The sauces and any item you get is above the average of like places. Food is high quality. You always leave satisfied with the flavor. The only thing I object to is the added charges for certain items like mushroom, etc. This should be included in the initial price. It's not like these items or... More

We really liked the Izzo concept and the food. The night we were at this particular location they were badly understaffed and getting our orders took longer than expected. Unfortunately we were in a hurry so it was a source of frustration That said - the food was good the options were wonderful and we would definitely go back again.
