Juan’s Flying Burrito is a hole-in-the-wall, Tex-Mex joint with tattoo-covered waitresses, quasi-alternative rock music and a menu that juices up the taste buds.

It’s one of the few Tex Mex eateries in New Orleans – and the food is great.

After chips and guacamole, I sampled a Jerk Chicken Burrito ($7.50) laden with beans, yellow rice, salsa, sour cream, avocado and pieces of chicken spiced right. It was enough for two.

Juan’s offers salads, quesadillas in a wide variety, tacos with just about anything, fajitas, enchiladas and, of course, burritos stuffed with beef, pork, chicken, shrimp … and more. The good news is Juan’s also caters to the vegetarian with dishes such as Super Green or Wicked Punk burritos, Wicked Garden fajitas and other veggie delights.

The restaurant is filled with people of all ages (there’s a kids menu too) out for a good time, fun food and the company of like-minded patrons.

Full bar includes Margaritas and Mojitos. Inexpensive. Another location at Mid town. Service: Good. © 2010 All rights reserved.
