Very small place and we had to wait outside during lunch time hours until a large table for four was available. Our waitress seemed a little stressed but warmed up a bit later. My seafood gumbo was tasty but I have had better. The Abita...More

It was a rainy Saturday and we needed gumbo. Though I lived in New Orleans years ago, I had never been to Liuzza’s. The gumbo is more brothy, and it’s not heavy on rice. It’s full of goodies, and so flavorful!

Restaurant Liazza’s by the Tracks is situated close to Esplanaza Avenue just outside Nola city centre. The establishment offers simple, yet good food, mainly classical American and Cajun dishes.

If you're in the area of the race track do yourself a favor and stop in Liuzza's for a bbq shrimp poboy! It is how shrimp should always be prepared. The beer is ice cold and the staff treats you like family.
