Nationally-loved restaurants coming soon to the greater New Orleans area

Posted By Google on Mon, Mar 12, 2012 at 10:22 AM

It seems like ever since the post-Katrina Waffle House boom, with more than five Waffle Houses opening in the greater New Orleans area since the storm, nationally-loved restaurants have been popping up all over. In 2011 alone we added a Jamba Juice, Jimmy John's (yet another reason to love Drew Brees), a DQ Grill & Chill (a Dairy Queen with all menu options including Orange Julius!), two Huddle Houses and two freestanding Panda Expresses. That's in addition to the freestanding Chick-fil-A and two Pinkberry Frozen Yogurts of 2010. So what's next? Find the newest kids on the block after the jump.
