A LA experience

This place is very popular. I waited in line for over an hour. It was cool to read the articles about the history on the wall. The snow cone was good- should be part of your New Orleans experience, but not worth the wait.

We took a really roundabout way to get here during our afternoon on Magazine Street, and it seemed pretty scary for a while. My daughter was not at all impressed with the outside of the place, and pretty upset that we had to wait to get in (they open at 1 and we got there at 12:52). We were 4th... More

This is a nice small shop with tons of history. Lines can be long, as each ball is made "to order" as it were, but worth the wait. Some things of note: -a small is plenty. Anything larger and you'll get "sugared out" by the syrup. -I would ask for just half the amount of syrup they put in...yes, it's... More

A really long line to get a really sugery treat. I ordered the blueberry special, and it was tasty, but so sweet I couldn't finish it all. My granddaughter got the strawberry shortcake with condensed milk drizzled over it, which made it richer, but still overly sweet.

This place is real New Orleans, an institution. It is slow and inefficient, you stand in line (which can be long), the place is creaky and hasn't been redecorated in years, and the tastes of the shaved ices are divine. There are thousands of combinations, with various fruit and non-fruit flavor options, as well as additional toppings (such as condensed... More

A New Orleans local told us we had to visit Hansen's while in town and boy was it worth it. We waited about 30 minutes and became friendly with the people in front of and behind us. There were so many flavors to choose from it was hard to decide, but as we learned you can't go wrong with anything.... More

I am a native and just went here for the first time, and I can say this is the best snoball in the city. Waited in line for 30 minutes in the July heat and it was 100% worth the wait.

The original Sno Ball Stand, but it is so dirty inside it was a complete turnoff. We returned here for my dad to reminisce about his childhood days. I would go elsewhere.

It's a bit of a wait, but it was well worth it. My boyfriend had a cherry and grape mix--I liked the cherry, but didn't care for the grape (personal preference). He loved it! If you're not sure what to get, ask for recommendations from the staff. I had the cream of chocolate topped with condensed milk. As a previous... More
