Parking is weak but available. Property is clean. Reception satisfactory. Noise level high. Service above average but not stellar. Menu typical. Food was hot and fresh. Presentation okay. Little light on flavor. Full bar, drinks were good. Flan was good.Little on the high side. Worth trying

We live in New Orleans and used to come here a lot. Ate here Mardi Gras Day to avoid the parades. I haven't been here in many years, and we were in the area so I thought, Why Not? The places is very nicely appointed and clean, and I always liked the fountain in the middle of the room. It... More

No side roads to park and very small parking lot for all of the business housed there. BUT ok must be worth the wait. When we where... More

Always just good quality ad consistent. Thighs is a very popular place. Great value. Mostly the wait staff is very good, hospitable, owners always around and on premises.

This has to be the best Mexican restaurant in Metairie. The chili rellenos are fantastic. Best I've ever had. Sangria is really good full of fruit. The only issue is the parking. Not enough parking for all the businesses in the complex. Friday nights are the most difficult when it comes to finding a parking place. It's still worth going.... More

I honestly do not know where these great rave reviews are coming from, but let's be real....this is not delicious Mexican cuisine. Coming from a restaurant management background, I know authentic and I know fake. This is fake as it gets. My spouse is of Latin descent and I am very familiar with any type of Latin cuisine. Server was... More

Good option for TexMex. Great bean dip and salsa is complimentary with chips to start. Hard to spot in the corner of a strip mall. Service was a bit slow, but it was busy. I would go back.
