Not a large place but if you have to wait well worth the wait. Very eclectic. Don't miss the guacamole to die for. Had the "wet" " Flying Burrito" loaded with shrimp chicken and shredded steak. My wig had shrimp fajitas. We will be back for sure. Don't pass this place by.

Went for a quick lunch, but boy, was i surprised! I did not want to leave. We got just at the right time when Margaritas were 2 for 1! great start. I ordered a fajita, it was sublime, absolutely delicious and extremely generous portion (well for us Europeans most American portions are too big!). Service was excellent and the atmosphere... More

Juan's Flying Burrito in Mid-City New Orleans offers: decent Mexican food; colorful, tattooed, efficient, friendly servers; an interesting mix of very loud music, and five or six off-street parking spaces. Our favorite menu items are Juan's Flying Burrito, Hawaii 5-0-4 Nachos, Taco Truck Tacos, Super Nacho Grandes, the "Trio" Starter (chips, queso, guacamole, & salsa), & Juan's Taco Salad. I... More

This is a very good Mexican restaurant that also has some Southern and Caribbean influences, such as applewood bacon, jerked chicken, and mango salsa. They have a couple of locations around the city, and offer a wide range of food, including for vegetarians (tofu tacos for instance). They have a full bar, good atmosphere, and a very clever name and... More

This might have been the best taco I have ever eaten in a restaurant. The house margarita is full strength and delicious. Service was good and we had a great time!

We ordered two of the flying burritos via UberEATS and they were very good! Would definitely order again!

$1 cans of PBR, $2 cans of Tecate during happy hour ... can't beat that! Non-happy hour beer prices are also pretty cheap. Ordered the taco salad, nice portion ... needed a bit of hot sauce but tasted pretty good. Service is fast and servers check up on you to make sure you have everything you need. This place is...

Juans is my favorite Mexican restaurant in New Orleans. I do however have a love-hate relationship with the place. Most of the time their food is delicious however it seems like when they're breaking in a new team of cooks their food is a little off. Also the service is consistently slow. I've noticed lately they have tried to be... More

The prices are too high for the food which doesn't taste good. Texas coast restaurants have better fish tacos. I definitely won't be back
