Thank you New Orleans for your support over the last decade. The past ten years have been filled with food, drinks and memories that would not have happened if it were not for you. We are throwing a party to celebrate Felipe’s 10th Anniversary!
Come join our fiesta Monday, November 14th at Felipe’s Uptown (6215 S. Miro Street). We will have a live Mariachi band from noon to 2 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. There will be free tamales, complimentary drinks, hourly giveaways, and more!
At Felipe’s Mexican Taqueria, our philosophy is simple: ingredients should always be fresh and the recipes authentic. We cook all of our food from scratch continuously throughout the day. The Felipe’s family is proud to be based here in New Orleans.

One of our favorite holidays, Día de la Independencia (Mexican Independence Day), is almost here! On Friday September 16th, the Mid City location of Felipe’s will be featuring drink specials from 5pm to close to celebrate. In case you need a refresher on the history of Mexico’s Independence from Spain, here are a few reminders:
- Spain conquered Mexico in the 1500’s.
- It wasn’t until the early 1800’s that the Mexicans decided to rebel and fight for their independence.
- Father Miguel Hidalgo led the revolt with his army of Mexican civilians and poor farmers, and is known for the speech that he delivered known as the Grito del Dolores (“Cry of Dolores”).
- The Cry of Dolores took place on September 16, 1810, and was Father Miguel Hidalgo’s way of announcing an uprising against the Spanish.
- He is also known as the Father of the Nation as his actions led to Mexican independence.
Come kick off your weekend with us on Friday in Mid City!

Stop by Felipe’s French Quarter this Thursday, September 8th for a refreshing daiquiri. The whole month of September will be Tales of the Cocktail’s first annual Daiquiri Season! Felipe’s is excited to participate and will be featuring the “Rumskull”, which is made with Black Magic Rum; and Tiki Tolteca will be featuring “Tequila’n Me Smalls” with Lunazul Blanco Tequila. Come on by and celebrate Daiquiri season with drinks and live mariachi music presented by Aces de Louisiana from 6-8 pm on Thursday, September 8th. To get you excited for Daiquiri season, here are three fun facts about the popular drink:
- National Daiquiri Day is July 19th, but now you have an extra excuse to drink one!
- The Daiquiri didn’t become popular until World War II when whiskey and beer were not as accessible as rum.
- The Daiquiri was Ernest Hemingway’s favorite drink.
