    Combining all sorts of flavors and ingredients into normal Mexican dishes like tacos and quesadillas, Juan’s also offers regular happy hour specials on margs and mojitos. [Eater 38 Member]

    Came to NOLA for vacation and stayed a few blocks away from here. Ate here a whopping three times in 5 days. Absolutely delicious. Red fish tacos are amazing. Get the Texican. You know you want it.

    Pork fanatic like myself? Want a change from the Pork 'n' Slaw tacos? Try the Bacon Azul quesadilla and substitute the ground beef with pork. Only $1 more and you'll likely have left overs. High five!

    Love the pork & slaw tacos. A little heat! The specials are always good. Sweet n green -yummy veggie option! Same with Mardi Grad Indian tacos and the redfish tacos. Very eclectic menu!

    this is thee one place where I didn't receive warm southern hospitality. filled with grungy hipsters that are too cool to crack a smile at a family having a good time at dinner. food was great though!
