Whenever in NOLA I have to go to Liuzza's by the Track. I have reviewed the BBQ shrimp pistolette before, which was fabulous... and is still one of my favorite, can't miss, meals in NOLA. There really is nothing on the menu that's not great. The shrimp remoulade is fantastic and the gumbo is amazing. Don't miss out just because... More

We specifically went for their Gumbo which was recommended to us as "the best in Nola". I can't attest to that, but it was good indeed. Our waitress was rude from the get go and kind of spoiled the whole experience for us. We also ordered a BBQ shrimp Po'boy. The BBQ sauce was delicious but then we noticed some... More

Luizza's By The Track is the perfect dive - and that is a rare and well-deserved complement! Situated in a neighborhood outside the clamor of the French Quarter, Luizza's offers a full-service, full-length bar and one smallish dining area. Waitstaff was extremely attentive and friendly. I sat at the bar and was waited on by Meredith who was outstanding (even... More

We found Liuzza's after looking up several gumbo places outside the french quarter (to avoid the tourist trap). We ate there after visiting Noma and the city park. Really convenient as it's only 10 minutes away. The food was delicious and rather cheap. The place is laid back and the staff friendly and really effective (the food came 5 minutes... More

This little bar is an absolute gem. Reasonably priced, delicious food and quick service. We visited City Park and the Sculpture Garden, then walked along to Liuzza's for their great lunch menu.

I love this place. It is a great corner bar with fabulous food. I had a couple of beers with their BBQ shrimp po boy. Absolutely fantastic. I could eat here everyday.

Great low-key local place. Not spectacular (by New Orleanian standard), but still great seafood and would come here again and again. Service is so-so though.

As a native Louisianan, I've enjoyed my share of bbq shrimp, and this is by far the best I've had. The shrimp is served the right way - swimming in buttery New Orleans style bbq sauce with a hefty portion of French bread. Venture off the tourist-beaten path and taste authentic New Orleans!

It wasn't enough that the food in New Orleans was already good and that I had probably gained 5 lbs in two days. But the Uber driver just had to recommend to me that I try Luizza's or Luizza's by The Track for good local eats. I dismissed it after a little thought - too far off the well beaten... More

Stopped here for a po boy lunch upon the recommendation of our airbnb host. It did not disappoint!! Best catfish I have ever had. Super laid back environment. Family friendly.
