Visiting NOLA, Grab Lunch Here!

We were visiting New Orleans for only 4 days, but I came across this little place on Groupon. Turns out, it was one of the best lunches we had in the (entire) city! The restaurant is very small but has all the character and friendly service you need. We ordered their famous BBQ Shrimp Po'Boy... read more

Great local charm and great service. Our group of 16 had a New Orleans experience at this restaurant near the fairgrounds. Some had their first Po' Boy, some their first Bloody Mary, either way the food was amazing. BBQ Shrimp Po' Boy wasn't as expected but was really good (think lemon, pepper and garlic instead of traditional char marks). Cool... More

I was so looking forward to having this po-boy, but was not impressed. When I think of bar-b-que shrimp, I think of Pascale Manale's or Mr. B's. This serving was more like butter shrimp. There was no Worcestershire sauce in the mix, and maybe they make it this way, but it wasn't good at all. I was starving and I'm... More

Gumbo was great! Prices felt a little High. Was excited for BBQ Shrimp Po Boy, plenty of shrimp but was disappointed they were tiny shrimp. Seems like the interior could be cleaner.

Stopped here after a family member recommended it. The BBQ Shrimp Po Boy was the best we had in NOLA. The gumbo was excellent too. Service was great too!

Small spot by the race track but worth the trip. We found this place when we purchased a few Groupons for New Orleans. I'm glad I took a chance on this place. The staff is friendly and helpful. The waitress suggested my husband and I split my appetizer and entree because they have large portion sizes. Portion sizes are large... More

I visit here each and every single time I am in NOLA! The Oyster PoBoy and the fried eggplant are absolutely divine!! Small old school neighborhood bar/restaurant that has the tastiest food around! We love you Liuzzas and will visit each time we come back!

OMG go to this place, get a cup of gumbo (delicious), their BBQ shrimp Po Boy (out of this world), and a cold beer. That's all you need to know. You will not be disappointed.
