Taqueria & Mezcaleria


Discover the vibrant heart of Mexican culture in New Orleans at Casa Borrega, a unique dining experience nestled on the historic Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard. Founded by Hugo Montero and Linda Stone in 2013, this eclectic Mexican restaurant was born from a vision to create more than just a place to eat — it's a cultural hub crafted from the ground up with recycled treasures. Imagine dining under wrought iron chandeliers from Mexico, surrounded by stained glass and tin ceiling tiles from San Antonio, while seated on pews from a local church. Casa Borrega isn’t just a restaurant; it’s a living art project that celebrates the rich tapestry of Mexican traditions through its decor and its menu, inspired by the fondas and mercados of Mexico City.


At Casa Borrega, every bite tells a story. Our menu is a tribute to the diverse flavors of Mexico, featuring specialties from Puebla, Veracruz, Oaxaca, Jalisco, and Yucatan. Renowned for our authentic mole recipes, we offer a taste of Mexico City that's both genuine and delicious. More than just serving food, Casa Borrega is a destination for those who cherish Latin culture. Join us for an evening of Latin American live music, vibrant art displays by Mexican-born local artists, and community events that educate and celebrate significant Mexican holidays like Cinco de Mayo.
