New Orleans Late Night Eats


Juan's Flying Burrito - Closes at 11pm

Juan’s is proof that you can take any type of food to New Orleans and put a creole spin on it. Juan's opened on February 7, 1997 and became the world’s first "Creole Taqueria.” The menu features seasonings and spices you wouldn’t regularly find at a “Mission Style burrito joint.”

With four locations scattered around New Orleans, people can find their way to Juan’s no matter where they are. The CBD (Central Business District) location is perfect walking distance from the French Quarter. Try their signature “Flying Burrito” for a mix of steak, chicken and shrimp that is sure to satisfy any burrito craving.

We Dat's - Closes at 2am

Even though Atlanta is the hometown of wings, We Dat’s can hold it down against the best wing spots in Atlanta. Starting off as a simple food truck, We Dat’s is currently the only black-owned business on Canal Street. The growth of this company isn’t the only thing that’s amazing.

Have you tried their wing sauces? We Dat’s has seven sauce options, including their original Wuzzam sauce. There’s more than enough sauce to cover your wings and your fries. What would usually be “swimming wings” is the default setting at We Dat’s.

You can now visit We Dat’s at their second location in New Orleans East on Old Gentilly Road – so you don’t have to venture into the quarter for your cravings, if you don’t want to!

Bud's Broiler - City Park Location - 24 Hours

Bud’s Broilers is a classic New Orleans hamburger joint that started in 1952 and continues serving patrons to this very day. Described as a “no frills” eatery, Bud’s is the perfect place when you’re craving something simple, filling and fast.

The City Park location is a 24 hour hangout and the usual late night meal after a long night of drinking and partying. My favorite time to visit Bud’s is after Voodoo Fest when the majority of their patrons are still in their costumes, stuffing their faces with Hickory smoked barbecue burgers and cheese fries.

Ben's Burgers - 24 Hours

Ben’s Burgers is a spinoff of Bud's Broiler. When he was 15 years old, Ben Collier started working at the Clearview location of Bud’s Broiler. Ben eventually inherited ownership from his sister when she moved to North Carolina.

A few years later, and we now have Ben's Burgers. The menu is similar to classic Bud's, but includes some new editions courtesy of Collier. He swapped out the charbroiled burgers for chargrilled burgers, and also added sausage, shrimp, chicken and poboys. Did I mention the funnel cake fries?
