Liuzza's by the Track Restaurant Review

: Liuzza's by the Track is aptly named as it’s adjacent to Fair Ground Race Course. The moniker also differentiates it from the unrelated Liuzza's Restaurant & Bar located less than a mile away. Familiar fare from the casual Creole canon is done better than the norm and includes a few distinctive house specialties. Most prominent is the po' boy stuffed with New Orleans barbecue-style shrimp luxuriating in a butter and pepper sauce. Oyster po' boys get the addition of enough garlic to blow a safe; the seafood gumbo, for which shrimp and oysters are cooked to order, should be a requirement for every diner; and bread pudding satisfies even the strongest sweets craving. Although you can get a decent glass of wine at Liuzza’s, this is more of a beer and bourbon shooter type of place. Note that Liuzza's by the Track closes at 7 p.m. Mon.-Sat.
