Casa Garcia, Metairie, LA Report #280

  We’re still navigating our way through the Coronavirus apocalypse, so every restaurant that is open only has pick up and delivery.  I’ve heard great things about this place for some time now.  I hate going to a new place and judging them based on take out food.  It seems to me a restaurant can’t… Continue reading Casa Garcia, Metairie, LA Report #280

Mais Arepas, New Orleans, LA Info Report

My daughter told me she had the Arepas here before and they were good, and she wanted me to try them.  We’re still going through the Coronavirus apocalypse, so every restaurant that is open only has pickup or delivery.

Shake Shack, Metairie, LA Report #276

If there’s any other street in the New Orleans Metro area with more burger joints than Veterans Memorial Blvd. in Metairie, I can’t think of it.  You’ll also find Atomic Burger, Lee’s Hamburgers, Mooyah and New Orleans Hamburger & Seafood on this strip, and that’s just the ones I’ve tried!

Margaritas Mexican Cuisine, Gretna, LA Report #275

For some time now I’ve said El Paso was my favorite Mexican restaurant.  Well, after an excellent meal here tonight, El Paso has a challenger!
