best mexican food in NOLA

I realize there is an older thread about Mexican food in the area, but I really think this restaurant deserves it's own post. 'Salsas por el Lago', located at 124 Lake Marina Drive, was incredible. The place is owned by a couple and made everything fresh for us. The cost was unbelievably reasonable and the food was top-notch. This was very authentic Mexican food, not Tex-Mex nor an Americanized version. The chicarones, pastor, carne desebrada, camerones and enchiladas were all delicious. They made the chips fresh when we got there and you absolutely have to try the 6 or so seven salsas they have. We ordered the mild (which was fresh and good), but we also got the 'hurricane' which was an amazing hot, green salsa.

I just want to see this restaurant make it. In talking to the owners they said they've been open for a year and a half. Right now it's a hassle to get up there with the construction going on along Lakeview, but totally worth the trip.

Jackson restaurant. Who has been?

Went there for the first time last week and I was really impressed with the food and the service. I went back last night, and though they had just closed, the owner, Marc, remembered my name and offered us drinks at the bar. The food was fantastic and it's definitely worth checking out. The prices definitely were completely reasonable. It's nice to have another good option on that part of Magazine.
