Crowded hole in the wall, getting it's name from the horse racing constantly on its wide screen. Best gumbo, Po-boys (oyster or shrimp) and shrimp Remoulade we tasted anywhere. Of course there are plenty of beer choices.

This placed reminded us of Wagner's Pharmacy next to Churchill Downs in Louisville. We have the Barbeque Shrimp Po-Boy, slaw, fries and schooner of beer and some ice tea. What a great authentic NOLA place. Must see and do!

As a group of four, we wandered into a mostly empty dining area for an early dinner. The bar stools were full and obviously most knew each other. The locals and staff watch Jeopardy together over a beer, etc. Great fun. I had a cup of gumbo - delish! and Shrimp Remoulade because I wanted shrimp, but not fried. My... More

It's an old school bar filled with locals so don't expect anything fancy here. We ordered Gumbo and the shrimp Po-boy. The Gumbo arrived hot and delicous with just the right amount of heat and plenty of sausage and shrimp to ensure at least one of each with every spoonful. .......When I bit into my Po'Boy, the first words out...

A little less than a half-mile walk from City Park, we stopped by for lunch after visiting the Sculpture Garden and the Botanical Gardens. This is clearly a local establishment in the residential section not frequented by tourists. We had a beef po' boy and gumbo, both of which were really good and reasonably priced. I can see why we...

I stopped by for lunch before going to the track and was not disappointed! Had the 1/2 oyster po' boy and gumbo and it was exactly what I craved. I will absolutely return next visit.

Red beans were so smoke flavored that I could not finish them. Gumbo tasted like it was frozen, the fried food was not flavorful. Staff were not very kind. My husbands lasagna, I believe, was about the only thing worth trying out of everything and still I was not that impressed.

Luizza's was one of best lunches I have had in a few months. I highly recommend the half po boy, half soup. The Gumbo was delicious! A fanastic start to lunch! The po boy was equally as good and capped of the meal deliciously! Highly recommend!

We visit New Orleans at least once a year, and Liuzza's by the Track is one of our favorites. We usually are the only tourists in the really small place. The po'boys are excellent! I love the gumbo, which is sort of "brothy". You just can't go wrong here.
