Restaurant details
Reviewed 14 April 2017

There were two great things about Churro's: the food and the staff. The restaurant itself is nothing spectacular, in a strip mall. It is small but clean and appealing. The staff was hilarious and could not have been friendlier, I felt like I was at a relative's house. There were three of us and we ordered two sandwiches plus a starter. They cut the sandwiches in three for us and didn't skip a beat when we ordered something to go. The croquettes were yummy to start, four of them. The Cuban sandwich was not greasy and very light yet there was more cheese on here than other Cuban sandwiches I've had. Same goes for the ropa vieja which had a delicious, tangy flavor. Perhaps it was cooked in a light tomato sauce? There was a considerable amount of meat on this sandwich so when I picked it up I expected it to be heavy and greasy and it was exactly the opposite. Delicious. We went on Saturday for lunch and were seated immediately but I hear if you try to go on a weekday for lunch it will be very crowded.

My wife and I had a great time. The lady who served was wonderfully friendly.

My wife had the Picadillo a lo Cubano with sides of Congri and Tostones. I had the Lechón Asado with white rice and Maduros Fritos.

Everything was delicious.
I finished it off with Pilón Cuban coffee. Now I'm wide awake!!

Will definitely come back if I'm in the area.

This is one of my all time favorite restaurants in Nola. It's small local owned and family operated. They have a lot of pride in what they do down to their homemade ketchup. It is consistent you always know what to expect. It's a little pricy but worth every penny. Try the ropa vieja, arroz con pollo, or albóndigas. Save room for dessert the churros are delicious. The soups are some of the best I've ever had and my go to when feeling under the weather. If you haven't been here it's a must try!

It is a bit pricey, but delicious. The pork is amazing as well as the beef. The tostones are some of the best I've ever had. Yucca was delicious. Cubano was superb and more reasonably priced than some other options. Service was very good. We did not have to wait long as some have reported. We felt compelled to order churros, but we could have skipped that. Decor is simple but comfortable.

Very good Cuban food! So happy to find this in Metairie :) Food did take a little while to come out but it was acceptable because what you got to experience was a home cooked Cuban meal and you can't go wrong with that! If you like pork, do yourself a favor and order El Lechon Asado
