Hansen's had good sno-balls, and we were happy to wait in line at this NOLA institution. However the menu is confusing and hung all over the place. The worst offense though...the place is dirty. Really dirty! We were left wondering if it was safe to eat here. Clean it up just a bit and I would have said 4 stars.

You don't want to miss this one! Best snow cones in New Orleans! It was great standing in line, talking with the locals - college kids, executives, kids with the moms and dads, grandparents taking the g-kids for a snow cone after school. And oh those snow cones! Like they used to be made - with all sorts of specialty... More

Prepare to wait a long time with a bunch of noisy kids at this tiny place, but it's worth it. There are so many great flavors to choose from and several sizes. Don't miss it!

We happened upon Hansens when a family member recommended it during our vacation in NOLA. I have never been a snowcone fan, but this was not your average snowcone. They had tons of flavors, and the finest shaved ice I have ever seen. They will even put a scoop of ice cream in the middle of your sno-ball and flavor... More

Exceptional snow cones! The way they shave the ice makes it uniquely smooth. Extensive variety of flavors. A must stop on a hot summer day.

It's all about the fluff in the ice and then the many many decisions you have on favors. My family and I truly enjoyed our visit.

I was pretty confused by the concept of snow balls as I had never had one before visiting Hansen's. It was explained to me and I thought "shaved ice with flavored syrup? How can that be amazing?" But, we took the cab ride over to Hansen's and I was VERY pleasantly surprised! They have hundreds of flavor combinations and truly... More

As a child I would make occasional trips with my parents to visit friends on the West Bank. For me, no trip was complete without a poboy and a trip to Hansen's. So, 50 years later I find myself in NOLA on a hot Saturday afternoon, needing a treat, so we headed to Hansen's. It was just as I remembered... More

great place for a snow ball, but lack of a comprehensive menu leaves the first time visitor wondering what to order, also the line of people waiting is deceiving-inside there are at least 10-12 people waiting-if you drive by and see no one in line stop in-they do have the best shaved ice-if you see a line go to Plum...
