The BBQ Shrimp Po’Boy At This Legendary Tavern In New Orleans Is What Dreams Are Made Of
There certainly aren’t any shortage of restaurants that serve a good po’boy around town. This iconic sandwich is found on just about every menu in the city, and every restaurant puts their own twist on it. This particular corner restaurant over in Mid-City has one of the most unique BBQ shrimp po’boys you’ve ever tasted, and it just might make your taste buds explode.
Located in the shadows of the New Orleans Fair Grounds, Liuzza’s by the Track is a local Mid-City neighborhood joint that’s also one of the best hidden gems in the city.
It might not look like much from the outside, but this corner restaurant is packing some serious flavors on the inside.
This casual Cajun eatery is a popular stop for many looking for a hearty meal that won’t break the bank.
It’s also a great place to grab a drink.
Speaking of drinks, their Bloody Marys are legendary.
Start your meal off with one and you’ll understand why. It’s the perfect balance of spicy, tangy, and citrus without being too overpowering.
If you’re in the mood for a po’boy, then you’ve come to the right place.
From roast beef to fried catfish, you’ll find all the classics on the menu here at Liuzza’s by the Track. If you’re a fan of oyster po’boys, we’d highly recommend their garlic oyster po’boy (pictured above). There are many, many places to get an oyster po’boy in New Orleans, but none have the distinctive flavors as this one does.
But their signature BBQ shrimp po'boy is by far one of their most popular menu items.
This one-of-a-kind po’boy features a hollowed out French bread pistolet that’s overflowing with shrimp and drenched in their incredible barbecue sauce that’ll have you wanting to lick the plate. Luckily, you’ll have tons of bread to sop up all of the deliciousness.
Their other secret weapon is their gumbo.
Many locals will swear that it’s the best in the city, so don’t pass up the opportunity to get yourself a bowl.
