Tracey's Original Irish Channel Bar Restaurant Review

: If it’s crawfish season, this is the perfect happy hour spot to buy them by the pound. And if it’s St. Patrick’s Day, Tracey's is the only place to be: green beer, Irish whiskey (lots of it), jello shots, door prizes and one of the best seats around for the Irish Channel St. Pat's Day parade. It’s one of those neighborhood bars you find in most cities, where the crowd looks pretty familiar on most days. The kitchen offers standout overstuffed seafood po’ boys as well as its real calling card, a roast beef po’ boy. Local delicacies such as fried pickles and boudin balls (boudin, for the uninitiated, is an irresistible sausage preparation) are available, too. The signature dish is gravy fries. Watch the Saints games on big-screen high-definition TVs. The venue is nothing fancy, but its aged exposed brick walls, bright blue chairs and old-style tile floor contribute to its environment.
