La Tia Taqueria and Cantina

About Us

This Metairie restaurant was opened in July 2022 by Leo Vazquez and Luis Nava, a pair of 30-somethings who share Mexican heritage and earlier careers in local restaurants.

Vazquez's family is from Mexico City; Nava is from Colima on the Pacific coast. They wanted to bring a more traditional picture of Mexican cooking to the table, drawn with a contemporary hand. The result feels both revealing and accessible. You can come here for tacos and tequila, and you can also try dishes that might become your next obsession.
