Great Mexican food

Walking distance from the Hyatt Regency. Casual lunch location. Friendly staff, delicious guacamole. We shared the pitcher of Sangria. Loved it! Citrus-y, but not sweet. We all enjoyed our entrees too. Would definiately go back when next in NOLA

Stopped in for an unplanned lunch whilst walking the garden district. The burritos and enchiladas were fantastic! Far nicer (and more reasonably priced) than any chain Mexicans we've visited. Highly recommend stopping in this place when walking this area!

Everything we had was incredible, from the chips and queso appetizer, and drinks, to the main dishes, we were all very satisfied. There was a 10 minute wait which gave us time to look at the menu and enjoy a drink. Magazine St was a very nice break from the other streets that can be chaotic!

Get the 11 bus from Canal Street and have lunch at Juan's - the "kitchen sink" nachos and the vegetarian burritos are highly recommended and the mojitos and beers are good too. Inexpensive and good rockin' music in the background.

I went for 11:15 AM early lunch. My order was the "Gutter Punk" burrito, which was huge and flavorful, and for $6.95, it worked out very well. The wait staff was fine, and the interior is clean and interesting (sort of contemporary corporate hippie Bohemian). I would recommend it and return. RJT

We wanted a change from creole/cajun food and a friend directed us to Juan's. We shared the guacamole, salsa, and chips appetizer, as well as the "street tacos" and the redfish tacos. We had far too much food, but couldn't quit eating it. The flavors were complex and complimentary of each dish. We also had the "rox" margarita (delicious) and... More

Friends/kids wanted less "New Orleans food" and being Texans we're always up for tacos! My food was good, adequate but not temp hot at all. . . and I ordered fajitas! In Texas they come of sizzling still, whole that's not necessary I do prefer temp hot food. The salsa was fresh and tasty, I'd have preferred it to be... More

We read about Juan's Flying Burrito online, so we checked it out. Delicious food, refreshing drinks, and all at great prices. Highly recommended!

So, my husband and I are from Austin, a city built on tacos. You eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You eat them with eggs. You eat them with pork belly. You eat them with duck liver mousse and caviar. A sub-par taco is sensed from five miles away and destroyed in seconds by hipster glasses armed with lasers.... More
