5. JUAN’S FLYING BURRITO….supporting the 504 in the 504
This is serious people, how often do you get to eat a flying burrito and get a margarita to go? Not only is Juan’s Flying Burrito delicious authentic cuisine but it is a 504 borrower in the 504. That’s right while you are visiting all the amazing things that the 504 area code has to offer, you can support some 504 borrowers. While you’re yumming up on the nachos, tacos, enchiladas and burritos at Juan’s don’t forget to pour some 504 Bulliard’s hot sauce on your tasty treats. Still not convinced that Juan’s is all you needed and then some, then check out their MENU for further inspiration.
