Incredible Food, Mixed Customer Service

I am giving this restaurant 4 stars because the food is amazing to my surprise. The location makes you wonder but the food speaks for itself. I would have given it 5 stars if they were a little nicer there. I have been here a lot since it was next to my work and every time they are just not friendly or happy, whichever. The girls all have very ugly looks on the face when they look at you and seem to not want to help. It also doesn’t help that they don’t speak English. It is a challenge to order anything due to this and I feel like that could be the one reason they aren’t friendly. Thank goodness the food is amazing and the owner is very nice or I wouldn’t be back.

Their Horchata is the best in Metairie/New Orleans and they also have the best baleadas around. I’ve ordered a number of different plates on different occasions at Los Catrachos and they’re consistently on point.

Stumbled upon this place last friday… Came in again Saturday.

The food was good. First night I had one “baleada de chorizo con todo” and another “baleada de salchicha con todo” for about $7! (Enough for two–I was hungry)

The next night I had carne asada, also good. Beef was exceptionally good.

I gave it 4 stars but really deserves 3.5.

The flour tortillas that wrapped the baleadas weren’t slightly chewy and I can that it came from refrigerated dough. It would break like store bought pita bread.

Then the corn tortillas from Saturday weren’t evenly flattened and not fully cooked.

Dispite all that, they get credit for being a step closer to perfection and are a step above 90% of latin restaurants that are mediocre enough to still be serving bagged, store bought, premade tortillas.

Also … Like most Honduran restaurants, service is friendly but not the best and unprotocalled. Make sure when you walk in, grab a menu, sit down wherever you want. Once you know what you want wave the waitress and go “tsssh-tsssh-tssshhh… señorita” in a loud, noticeable but friendly manner. Smile if you must.

Point at whatever you want and specify the item. The simpler your order, the better off you’ll be.

A common mistake by proprietors of Honduran restaurants (this Included) is that the menu too vast. Whereas in Honduras, most of the best cuisines are specialty street vendors.

Why do I know this?

Aside from being born in Honduras, I’ve spent four straight years after Katrina living there.

Anyways, try the place out. I think its fairly priced, clean, better than most I’ve tried.

I LOVE THIS PLACE. The food is authentic and tastes amazing. The girls are super sweet. And I mean the prices are ridiculously low. 11$ for big shrimp with rice beans a salad and tajadas? Ridiculously well priced. Call and order ahead of time. They take a long time but it’s so worth it
