Juan's Flying Burrito Restaurant Review: New Orleans is rich with a number of small Mexican joints, but Juan’s Flying Burrito has withstood the test of time, and slowly keeps expanding to various parts of town. The casual, funky environment fits the place, and be prepared, the music is loud. Styling itself as a “Creole taquería,” the restaurant serves overstuffed burritos and tacos that sometimes showcase an inventive Creole touch. Try the Juana roll, a Mexi-roll with grilled Creole chicken, cream cheese, sliced avocado, and jack and cheddar cheeses. Fish tacos field crunchy blue corn tortillas and mahi mahi; platters of nachos are piled with toppings. Juan’s has perhaps the best quesadillas in town; try the ground beef and shrimp version. This is also the place to go for industrial strength margaritas. Don’t expect too much for dessert; if you’re lucky, there may be a plate of cupcakes or some oversize cookies available. Also located at 4724 S. Carrollton Ave., Mid-City, 504-486-9950.
