--garlic oyster poboy from Liuzza's by the Track, N. Lopez St.

That's 12 but it's NOLA . Oh, one more, Bloody Mary (extra spicy): Commander's
My family has eaten at Bozo's for 4 generations. Starting with the original location on St. Anne's. Chris' fried catfish is also hard to beat. He used to boil up some great crabs when I was a kid, and the fries were not frozen back in the day, but it is still a great place.
I used to love the roast beef po boys at Ciro's in Metarie, and Messina's Italian in Kenner.
I still love Tony Angelo's.
