You've lived here long enough to develop an aversion to Bourbon Street. But get wise to a hidden gem nestled amongst the bars and souvenir shops with today's deal: Pay $15 for $30 to spend on food and drink at Rita's Tequila House. Rita's specializes in Tex-Mex cuisine and drinks not common among the tourist traps on Bourbon Street. Get started with a plate of Yuca Fries, which comes topped with homemade Queso, sour cream, fresh-chopped bacon, and pico de gallo. The restaurant also serves up a variety of fresh fajitas, quesadillas, and Mexican pizza, which comes piled high with your choice of freshly marinated meats, lettuce, queso, pico de gallo, and black olives. But with a name like Rita's Tequila House, the spirits are the star of the show: This Quarter establishment serves up more than 135 tequilas. Whether you're noshing on some Tex-Mex fare or sipping an exotic tequila, the candlelit courtyard is a world away from the rowdy Bourbon Street scene.
