Big Easy Roasted Corn & Churros serves authentic Mexican food in Fat City

Posted By Google on Thu, Feb 20, 2014 at 3:51 PM

Big Easy Roasted Corn & Churros (3517 20th St., Metairie, 504-657-0031) serves authentic, quality Mexican food just off of Severn Avenue, across from Lakeside Shopping Center. Aside from roasted corn brushed with mayonnaise and sprinkled with cheese, and crispy-outside-soft-inside churros dusted with cinnamon sugar, there are tacos, tortas and flan. Spicy mango with lime, cucumber agua fresca, pozole, menudo  and bean soup have all been featured specials. Churros come plain, filled with chocolate or strawberry or topped with caramel. Forearm-lickingly juicy tacos are topped with cilantro and onions, served with a spicy, smoky house-made sauce.

Prices are also very reasonable. For example, an order of three tacos is only $5 and plain churros are only $1 each. The sodas and juices offered are what one would expect at the average taco truck (Jarritos, Jumex, bottled Coca-Cola products) and more than 10 different seasonings and hot sauces (Cholula, Tapatio,Tajin, El Yucateco, etc.) are available — not that diners need them. Al fresco dining is an option also.
