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.

Love both locations slightly different menus, and I guess owned by different families, the gumbo and etouffee is excellent. The BBQ shrimp po-boy is tremendous, the shrimp tender and clean tasting, better shrimp than I had at Commanders., keep in mind the BBQ isn't really BBQ, it's baked with butter and seasoning. Potato salad is very good, mashed potato style.

Stopped by Liuzza's before going to horse races at the fairgrounds because of the reviews on Tripadvisor. A relaxed neighborhood hole in the wall atmosphere. The oysters on the poboy were fresh and the sandwich was very good. The gumbo was good although not the typical brown base I expected. My husband's fries were okay but were not hot. It's... More

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
