Liuzza's by the Track

Best shrimp po' boy. <periodThis place is another reason why New Orleans is a favorite city. The po boys (BBQ shrimp and Fried Shrimp) and bloody mary's here are the best we've ever had (so far) and well worth the trek out of the French Quarter.
For another wonderful po boy? Try Domilise's.
And just fyi - both these places are tiny. Domilise's at least you grab a number and squeeze to the bar (for a surprisingly good bloody mary) while you wait for your number to be called to order. Liuzza's you have to put your name on the sign up sheet by the door.
We also went to Willie Mae's. I'm not going to post separately as it's already been posted so many times. I thought it was going to be overrated (as many things are). But in this case the reviews are correct. It's the best fried chicken we've ever had.
Fair warning, unless you get there when it opens, be prepared for lines. All are worth it though!!
