What IS a snowball?? Is it, as the locals adamantly declare, NOT a snow cone? This is the question.Upon review of the snowball experience, I submit to the world that that a snowball is in fact a child of the snow cone family. Not a cousin of the snow cone (snow cone adjacent) but in fact lives clearly within the immediate family of the snow cone, if perhaps as a rebellious young teen questioning their identity.A cup of shaved ice with flavored syrup poured over top is a snow cone whether it is made in NOLA or New York.The snowball does in fact have some unique distinguishing features. Most obviously, the condensed milk drizzled on top (which does add a lovely touch of creamy sweetness!). Also it is claimed that the snowball consists of a finer, softer kind of ice than the snow cone, though those claims must only hold true for particularly course snow cones, for I found the consistency to be consistent with my general experience of snow cones across the board.This place I appreciate for its reasonable prices and food including chili and hot dogs! I would recommend to tourists to also walk down the street to see the shops and coffeehouses along the way :)

My first time there. I will be back. That stuffed snowball is next.

I wasn't impressed!! My review is based on the sugar-free flavors- I've tried four flavors- Spearmint, Wedding Cake, Bubble Gum, Ice Cream, and all taste like flavored water. This last trip I added ice cream and condensed milk for added flavor and still was not impressed. Additionally, I waited at the window for nearly 10 min despite there only being two people waiting for a Snoball on a Sunday and received no acknowledgment despite locking eyes with the worker when I first got to the window. I gave two stars as my review is based only on sugar-free options and given the lines I've seen in the pat I can't help but think the sugar options are good.

Great tasting Snowballs! We had never had a Snowball before until visiting NOLA and this place came recommended. We tried five different flavors and I loved all of them except for one (which was just a personal preference). The staff was friendly and polite. Orders are ready really quickly. I highly RECOMMEND giving them a try.

Prices are higher than many other places. The flavor was not strong on the snowball. Lots of syrup on the snowball but the flavor wasn't great. Service was great.

Long lines come with great snowballs. Worth the wait.

I see why this place has been in business 51 years! $7.50 for two big snow cones is a deal. Huge menu of flavors including cream, they have regular concession food too such as nachos, sausage, etc. They use a lot of flavoring on their cones too.

Had 4 grandchildren visiting from Ohio and introducing them to New Orleans snowballs was a must for their visit. They thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

They have one of the most important ingredients to a great New Orleans snowball : Fine Ice!!! Melts as it hits your tongue. Prices a great.

Customer service was great. Stand was out of sample cups and offered no other solutions such as spoons instead. Papaya was a great bit in the weaker side, lacking flavor to be an exotic fruit. Tasted like dragonfruit instead, flavorless. However, I'm willing to stop by again and try something different.

Delicious, Great Customer Service, Gives Teens a job, quick order line, long wait line. Took maybe 15 minutes to receive order due to popularity of business. Affordable Prices, great flavors

My son's favorite after school treat. He always orders a "rainbow" snowball and I ask them to put in a big cup! My usual order is a cherry snowball and nachos with extra peppers! So New Orleans!

Orchid snowball was ok. The vanilla soft serve was really good. Cash only.
