I used to go to Juan's often, but I was tricked and made a fool of, so I'm not going back They add a 20% "gratuity" for parties of 6 or more (which I'm OK with), but the check does not reveal this and has a line for "tip" (NOT "additional tip" as is customary, and which lets you know... More

After walking all over the Garden District of New Orleans, meeting neat people, strange, foreign and lovingly local, we assuaged our hunger dropping in to Juan's. Way in the back we got a smal table--proving great for people watching and just below the noise level. The food we enjoyed. I hadgoat cheese and spinach on something. no I'm not wavering--I... More

This wonderful, inexpensive restaurant offers an excellent selection of "Creole/Mexican" burritos, tacos, and enchiladas that can be eaten in or taken home. Very generous portions. The Blackened Red Fish Tacos were tasty and filling, as were the "Flying Fahitas". This place is always busy, always a good sign.

Great food for a decent price. I had the Flying Burrito, which was great. My wife had the spinach & goat cheese quesadilla - which she raved about. Solid.

Family came in town and wanted a taste of Mexican. Heard about Juans and decided to try it out. 1st. the waitress was not friendly, 2nd. the food was horriable, enchiladas was burnt and didn't have any shrimp like the menu stated, one person chewed on a piece of plastic in their burrito, the cokes were flat, the tea wasn't...

When I first walked into this place, it was packed and I was inclined to just turn around and leave. It wasn't the cleanest of places, and it had that hole in the wall vibe to it. But we sat down, ordered our meals and I was pleasantly surprised. I made a joke when ordered something to the effect of... More

Quesadillas were fantastic. Huge, full of flavor. Super chicken burrito was delicious and hit the spot. Margaritas were fantastic, got me a touch drunk. Strongly recommend the place.

Average but I've had better burritos. Lots of locals there. The food was not worth taking home leftovers. We went for lunch

Staying in Garden District

Neighbourhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
