New Orleans, better known as the Big Easy is full of some amazing food, live music and culture. The Big Easy is known for some of the best Cajun food you could find too. From the best seafood to the best jambalaya, New Orleans has some of the best eeeeats in the entire U.S., which are some big shoes to fill. Sure you could spends lots of money trying to eat everything in NOLA, but you could also have some of the cities best eeeeats for cheap.
Here are some of my favorite cheap eeeeats in The Big Easy:
When in New Orleans, you must have a po-boy. At Johnny’s, you will find some of the city’s best. At Johnny’s, they have everything from Alligator Sausage Po-Boy to my favorite the Shrimp Po-Boy. At Johnny’s most of the po-boys are under $15 dollars, which is a huge win. When in NOLA, make sure to visit Johnny’s, your stomach will thank you! [Photo : Instagram]

Gumbo and jambalaya is a must in New Orleans. Lucky for you, one of my favorites is in the French Quarter and they are both at Coop’s Place. At Coop’s Place, they have some amazing Cajun Fried Chicken for under $15, but you must get either the gumbo and jambalaya, both priced at $7.75. Don’t be scared by the Rabbit & Sausage Jambalaya either because it will blow your mind. [Photo : Facebook]

Falafel is a big thing in New Orleans. One of the city’s most popular food trucks, the Fat Falafel, now have a brick and mortar. Most of the menu is just $11 and under, but what they are known for is the Falafel sandwich. This sandwich is amazing! The best part is that the sandwich is only $6!!! So do yourself a favor and visit 1000 Figs and get two Falafel sandwiches. [Photo : Facebook]
