New Orleans Bars with Food 

Many local bars keep the cuisine simple with hearty and affordable options for a meal or to refuel after a night out.

Liuzza's By the Track At first sight, one might not guess Liuzza's by the Track has a kitchen. The unassuming corner bar is tucked behind the Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots and there's limited seating. The bar is known for its Bloody Marys and serving iced schooners of beer. But there is a small kitchen and it delivers a tasty menu of local staples with a few twists. Highlights of the menu include a garlicky oyster po-boy and a unique barbecue shrimp po-boy. The shrimp po-boy features a hollowed-out pistolette filled with shrimp in peppery butter sauce. There's also fried seafood po-boys, Creole gumbo and plenty of neighborhood regulars enjoying the fare. 1518 N. Lopez St., 218-7888

Banks Street Bar Patrons at Banks Street can get pizza and Italian fare from Lazaro's, located at the back of the neighborhood bar. 4401 Banks St., 486-0258; www.banksstreetbar.com

Bruno's Tavern Just blocks from Tulane and Loyola universities, Bruno's serves burgers, po-boys, salads and fries loaded with toppings like roast beef debris, bacon, cheese and sour cream to college students and neighbors. 7538 Maple St., 861-7615; www.brunostavern.com

Buffa's Bar & Restaurant Better burgers than Port of Call down the street? Some swear by the grub at Buffa's Bar & Grill, where you can eat in the small bar up front or the non-smoking, Eugene O'Neill-esque back room (open Wed.-Sun.). 1001 Esplanade Ave., 949-0038, www.buffasbar.com

Ernst Cafe Since it's a busy downtown lunch spot during the day, it should be no surprise this corner bar serves reliable burgers, wraps, salads and more. 600 S. Peter St., 525-8544; www.ernstcafe.net

Markey's Bar This busy Bywater corner bar has plenty of sports on TV, pool tables and a shuffleboard game and a short menu of hearty fare. 640 Louisa St., 943-0785; www.markeysbar.com

Ugly Dog Saloon This saloon has a smoker on site to slow-cook meats for its slate of barbecue sandwiches and platters and the tasty coleslaw. 401 Andrew Higgins Blvd., 569-8459; www.uglydogsaloon.net

Wit's Inn Pizza is the specialty at this neighborhood bar, but there also are spicy wings, salads, calzones, sandwiches and subs on a menu full of Italian accents. 141 N. Carrollton Ave., 486-1600; www.witsinn.com
