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...More

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...More

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.

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...More

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...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!
