Liuzza's by the Track Review

Fried-oyster po'boys drenched in garlic butter, bowls of sweet-corn-and-crawfish bisque, and grilled Reuben sandwiches with succulent corned beef are some of the reasons you might decide to tolerate the poor ventilation in this barroom near the racetrack and Jazz Fest grounds. The Creole chicken and sausage gumbo with shrimp is always good—thin on body, but heavy on spice (the shrimp is cooked to order and can be left out if you have dietary restrictions). But the pièce de résistance here is a barbecue-shrimp po'boy, for which the shrimp are cooked in a bracing lemon-pepper butter with enough garlic to cure a cold. The kitchen closes at 7 pm.

    Liuzza's by the Track Review

    Unlike the previous review (crazy talk), I LOVE this neighborhood eatery/watering hole. The BBQ shrimp po-boy is to die for. It is one of the best meals in N.O.. I return time and again to eat and drink in this wonderful neighborhood spot.

    Ate lunch there today AWFUL

    AWFUL!! I am a native of South Louisiana and have lived in NOLA for 30 years. Always stop here for cocktails pre Jazz Fest, never eaten here. GUMBO is TERRIBLE. Oyster po boy had no flavor. Really dissapointed.
