I stopped by here for lunch after a kayak trip as it was recommended by locals. This was my first ever visit to New Orleans, and at first glance some neighborhoods look a little sketchy, this place looks no different but is an absolute MUST! It was just wonderful inside, and I think I had the best sandwich of my... More

The service is good but the food is not good. If you are traveling and looking for good NOLA local food- looks somewhere else. L prefer Liuzzas on Bienville St.

We took friends from out of town, and it couldn't have been better. Lots of choices of New Orleans classics, done the real way, cooked and served by true New Orleans people. Our friends were not only bowled over by the food, but three different people who worked there came over with little samples of food for their baby, so... More

Love, love this NOLA secret place. It's off the beaten path just off beautiful Esplanade Avenue. It's between French Quarter & City Park right by fairgrounds where Jazz Fest is. BBQ Shrimp are amazing! egg plant is delicious! Everything I've ever tried! darn good gumbo too! 😋😋😋

Great roast beef po-boys, and beer in a frozen mug is awesome. If you happen to be in the area, worth stopping in for a frozen beer...

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.
