Awesome bar, great selection of tequila. The music is too loud but great place and cool ambiance. Their margaritas are very good as well.

Myself and husband love Tequila so the name caught our attention, and we weren't disappointed. We ordered the Chicken Nachos they were delicious and the portion sizes was huge.

Rita's specializes in Tequila. It ranges in $3 - $90 per shot. I only drank beer and had Nachos & Tacos. The food was excellent for the price. Service at the bar was fast and very friendly from Antonio..

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
