Really enjoyed the ambiance here as well as the down-home food. But beware, this low-country food isn't for everyone. Terrific po'boys and great beer mugs!

The BBQ shrimp po ' boy was among the best meals we had in New Orleans (and when we go to NO, it is a feeding frenzy). Pls. note--in NO, BBQ shrimp means it's been baked in a buttery sauce--not a red tomato-based sauce. The po' boy was overloaded w/shrimp -- I couldn't eat them all -- and they were... More

Visiting from Miami and saw this place in the frommers book. I also had a local recommend this place to me, and I was so glad that frommers and the local made this suggestion. The location is perfect for those without a car rental. Its just a five minute walk from the popular city park and cementary. My wife and... More

This Mid-City restaurant near the Fairgrounds was the first place I went after a 6-hour flight and renting a car. and has a lunch special with a po-boy and gumbo combo that allows you to try two of their favorites. There is a slight upcharge for seafood po boys but that was not enough to stop me from getting the... More

I love Liuzza's!! This little corner bar is in an often missed neighborhood in New Orleans...off the beaten path. The place is always hopping and well it should be--the food is excellent. They're famous for their shrimp po boy--don't miss it! The bbq shrimp is out of this world, tucked plentifully into a baguette....oh my goodness, it's good! The sweet... More

My wife used to go to this place as a youth, and it still offers a great combination of value, atmosphere and authenticity. The service was reasonable given the crowd, and the portions were generous. The tables are pretty close together so it gets a little noisy, but to me that adds to the atmosphere. Order a variety of items... More

I wanted true Cajun food at a reasonable cost. Liuzza' is the perfect neighborhood cafe offering great creole/cajun food at a reasonable. Ambiance is of a small cafe/bar. We started with a cup of gumbo, which was the size of most bowls, followed by the smoked oyster with garlic po'boy which was wonderful. The server gave our sweet potato fries... More

This was our best meal while in New Orleans. The gumbo was to die for, the bbq shrimp poboy was great, and the breathtaking beef po boy was amazing. Super friendly service, clean bathrooms, etc. I can't say enough good things about this place.
