I got a craving for nachos while on our New Orleans adventure. We read the reviews and decided it was worth the cab ride over. It absolutely was! The nachos were perfect. The staff was attentive without being rude. The pricing was dead on. If you need a break from the standard NO fare, take the drive. Your stomach will... More

Stopped here for lunch on Sunday and loved everything about it. We were quickly seated and our waitress visited almost immediately. We ordered drinks, queso, and salsa and had them at the table within just a couple of minutes. Between the three of us, we tried the Flying Burrito, Fajitas, and Mardi Gras Tacos and everything was fantastic. For the... More

Some people have called this "edgy", I would call it hipster...but in a good way. The steak/blue cheese quesadilla is amazing (has bacon as well).

It's not exactly traditional tex-mex but this joint hits the spot with an edgy atmosphere that will fill the appetite of the hungriest foodie. Typically the music is loud and you will get service from a sassy tattooed waiter that will get the job done. l always enjoy the drinks as well as many of the food items including the... More

Excellent burritos, nachos and tacos. Juan's got a nice vibe and friendly helpful staff. For a vegetarian in New Orleans it's a blessing!

We went to Juan's on the recommendation of my son who lived nearby. The food was tasty, quick, and in very hearty portions. Loved the jerk chicken nachos and quesadillas. Will be back! Only drawback was the meter out front on Magazine Street. Make sure you put enough coins in the meter. Meter maids are out and on the ball.

Excellent burritos and other food, made from fresh ingredients. During our 4 day stay in NOLA we ate here three times even though it was not near our hotel, as we enjoyed our first meal a lot. Try the sangria or other drinks.

This is one of my favorite places in NOLA. Best value (quality vs cost) that you will find in the city. Menu is varied, typical Tex/mex items but with the local cajun & creole influence. Everything tastes fresh. Drink list is exciting. And so is the restaurant with its young, hip vibe. An obligatory stop if you're in the Garden... More

Here's what we got and our thoughts: Bacon Azul (3 big quesadilla triangles) - DELCIOUS & mouthwatering Flying burrito - my boyfriend's entree (devoured it, so I'm assuming it was equally DELCIOUS) Triple dip combo (salsa/guacamole/queso)was good - def finished that off easily! Also got crawfish queso dip, which was awesome! What could be wrong about crawfish and cheese?!? Haha!... More
