When we travel food is always our number one expense! I can prepare for lodging and attraction expenses but food is always going to be something your travel budget can’t prepare for especially when you’re visiting New Orleans which per capita, leads the nation in James Beard Award nominations.
Juan’s Flying Burrito offers Mexican fusion and creating a unique creole taqueria. They serve burritos, tacos, margaritas are more. With 3 different locations: the Lower Garden, Mid City, or CBD you can stop in Juan’s Flying Burrito on your way to many of New Orleans top city attractions.
Guests can stop in and enjoy some killer nachos like the Hawaii 5-0-4 (pictured below:chips with melted cheese, applewood smoked bacon, pulled pork, grilled mango, pineapple salsa, chipotle sour cream, avocado, and jalapenos. $9.95) or the Red Chile Chicken and Goat Cheese (cheese, chicken, adobo sauce, spinach, goat cheese $8.50).
If tacos are your thing, munch on the Mardi Gras Indians (roasted corn, pinto beans, and grilled squash with jack and cheddar cheese, spicy slaw on grilled corn tortillas $7.00) or the Black ‘n’ Gold burrito (grilled steak, mango salsa, bell peppers, black beans, yellow rice, cheese and salsa rolled in a flour tortilla $10.95) follow with a pitcher of Margaritas or local/imported beer and you’re ready for a fun and festive evening.
Since it was happy hour, we ordered a large pitcher of Margaritas and the Hawaii 5-0-4 nachos on a Friday at 6p.m. My husband and I like to graze at a variety of locations versus having a 5 course meal at one spot. It’s really the best way to enjoy the food selections in New Orleans and helps your travel budget!
We visited the CBD location which is tucked away on Baronne Street but within walking distance from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome or Smoothie king Center. We also experienced zero seating wait-time and close to several hotels and a few blocks away from the Loyola/UPT streetcar! The location and decor is very causal and laid back but most importantly well-priced.
