In her book "Gumbo Tales," Sara Roahen wrote that going to Liuzza's for your first poboy ruins it for every other place you'd go after that. She described the barbecue shrimp poboy at Liuzza's as the Statue of Liberty, a sandwich that "changes your life."...More

We were advised to come here for the house gumbo, shrimp po' boys, and a beer. Good advice! The gumbo was excellent; ours was almost like a gumbo version of ropas viejas. The shrimp po' boy was huge and absolutely delicious. It was very crowded...More
