This place was a nice break from all the Cajun cuisine I had been eating. The food while not outstanding was good and full of flavor. Some might compare this place to Moe's. However, that would be an injustice; Felipe's is way better. For those in the central Florida area, it reminded me of Tijuana Flats. Like TJ's, Felipe's has... More

We sat at the bar and sampled their house margarita. Wasn't bad but it wasn't particularly good either. Food looks like a Mexican version of Subway. But with one extra, you can season at will at the condiment station with a selection of peppers and whatnot. Prices looked reasonable and servings looked large. I was most impressed by the large...

Amazing food, I am not a fan of "subway" like restaurants but this is great food! Lots of locals so you know its not too pricey, excellent menu - fish tacos were amazeballs. Taco soup spoke to my soul, the deep fried chimis were a delight to my tastebuds. Clean, family style or you can take your food upstairs to... More

Kind of crazy to eat Mexican food while in new Orleans but....we had been walking all day. It was drippy and raining and we were hungry but didn't want a lot. Happened to walk by Felipe's and thought of tortilla soup called us in. Quite satisfying and flavorful. Nice chunks of fresh avacado. Just what we needed.

My husband and I ordered the tacos. My husband ordered 3 and I ordered two. I was initially concerned about the small size of the tacos. They are the smallest I had seen. But they give you 2 corn tortillas per taco and fill them generously. My husband ordered 3 different meats, al pastor, tandi chicken and chorizo. He said... More

This place is excellent! Found it by mistake but couldn't be better! We all had burritos packet full of ingredients. I had a super burrito with the spicy chicken. I particularly liked the cilantro and onion mix. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone, and will definitely make this a repeat stop on our annual trip to Nawlins

Have heard great things about the margaritas for years, but never stopped in. We had no idea what we were missing. Fish tacos were great, guacamole chips and salsa tasted fresh and fixin bar was nice addition. BTW...try the margaritas

Everything is basically ala carte which we didn't realize until after we got our food. I only got 2 tacos for $6 and had to go back and order chips and dip because I was still hungry. Also you stand in line while you tell them what items you want on your food. My tacos were really good but won't... More

I would have given Felipe's five stars if the bartender remembered to bring us some water. Otherwise, what a great surprise!!! If you have been to Moe's or Qdoba and stood in line to order, that is the same deal here. But, it is real Mexican. The super burrito with carnitas is excellent. And, they have a full device bar....
