My companion said that Juan's was the best burrito she'd ever eaten and she's half Cuban. Delicious.

Upon tasting the Flying Burrito, my mind suddenly came to comprehend string theory and quantum mechanics in a way no human ever has, for I truly fell into 11 dimensions of flavor. I succumbed to a trance state beyond time, where I lived the totality of all possible lives in a flurry of parallel worlds. Eons passed, stars died and... More

Tried Juan's tacos and was very pleased. Soft tacos with shrimp and veggies. Chips and queso was satisfying before meal. Good Neighborhood atmosphere. Pricing was fair. Help was pleasant. Overall a good experience.

Service was ok and atmosphere was fun but a little cramped feeling. The margaritas were just so so. The food was great and the hot sauces and salsas were top notch. I would definitely go back again, but it's not like I am craving it and wishing they had one in TX.

Great spot, large portions, excellent service! We sat at the bar for lunch to get seated more quickly. I sometimes find food service at the bar is not the best - but not the case at Juan's. The bartender entertained us some during lunch too, which was fun.

Let me preface this review. I lived in southern California for 20 years where the US brand of Mexican food is better than anywhere else in the country. Don't get me wrong. The food here is good; it's my favorite for Mexican in New Orleans. But if you've had Mexican food in Miami, New York or California, you'll be thinking... More

Juan's was less than average. They claim to be Tex-mex... But miss the mark. Me and my husband got burritos and the separate flavors combined within the burrito were overwhelming. It seemed that the beans were straight out of the can and did not nice well with the other ingredients. The flavors did not compliment each other and mine was... More

Best margarita in New Orleans! We got there too early fro their happy hour which offers a double at the single price. And we did have every intention of walking back for another round. But catching a bus sometimes means catching a bus. The Magazine Street route number 11 came by at the other end of the street.

I thought Juan's was good! I had eaten here before years ago and it was good then as well. It was jammed packed on a Friday night as to be expected if the food in a restaurant is good. The staff was nice as long as you are polite as well. There were homemade sauces on the tables. There was... More
