We like to stop in for the BBQ shrimp po'boy and it is worth a quick uber (about $7) outside of the quarter to come here for lunch. Good gumbo too. Give it a try!

Went on a recommendation and was not disappointed. The food was excellent. I had the gumbo and my fiancé had the signature shrimp dish, both were flavorful and yummy.

Don't get upset about the external look of this place... we were not convinced, but after all the good reviews online we decided to give it a try! And we did good!!! Their gumbo is something I still cannot stop talking about after one month, and the shrimp po boy was delicious too! We were so full but they convinced... More

if you want to eat at a true local lunch spot--this is a great one. The open face BBQ Shrimp Po Boy is legendary and their Gumbo is our favorite in the City....the Bloody Marys are great too.....easy cab/uber from the Quarter (up Esplanade) to this unpretentious gem

Sat at the bar & ordered the BBQ shrimp po'boy. Waitress was kind enough to bring me a taste of the crawfish etoufee while I waited. Both were amazing! Local customers were in & out & staff greeted them by name. Locals were also friendly & chatty.

We were told eating here was a must and it did not disappoint. We had an amazing BBQ Shrimp Po'boy sandwich and even turtle soup. Yes, turtle soup. Everything was delicious and the service was great.

We went to Liuzza's by the Track on the recommendation of a friend for supper our first night in NO. As it turned about it was only about 3 minutes from our excellent Air B&B on Desaix Blvd. It is a small local kind of dinner and bar type place in the middle of a residential neighborhood. One of their... More

I had read all the reviews and had really high hopes that we would have a good experience. We did not. First of all someone had burnt some bread and the whole place was filled with blue smoke, we came out stinking of smoke! The staff were surly. The gumbo was ok, not worth the hype in my opinion. The... More

I've been coming here off and on for almost twenty years and a recent visit proved Liuzza's is still churning out delicious fare. My unabashed favorite dish remains the fried oysters which taste so fresh they could've been harvested that morning. Prior to Katrina, they were served with a wonderfully garlicky sauce similar to that accompanying escargot, but if you... More

I had the BBQ Shrimp po-boy and it was everything I read about and more. The food was prepared after i ordered it and was piping hot with a HUGE mound of shrimp. The sauce was delightful. I sat right down at the bar during lunch hour and was promptly greeted and taken care of. The waitress was friendly and... More
