No Longer ""ALL OF THAT!""

Like many things these days ... the portion and quality of the sandwich has greatly suffered ... and of course, there have been significant cost increases throughout the past 17 years that I have been going there.\r \r Yes, they used to be ""THE PLACE"" to get a muffuletta, hands down ... but they can't claim that noteriety any longer!\r \r One thing that is for sure and hasn't changed at all in all these years .... view more

Don't waste your money

Forget about trying to give them your money. They are rude and treat you as if they don't need your business... whether that's true or not, you should always make your customers or potential customers feel appreciated and welcome. There are plenty of other places to enjoy great food and amazing service. I can assure that they will never see another dime of my money again. I'm somewhat relieved to see that there a... view more

Thought I'd died and gone to heaven!

I LOVED the selection of Italian coffees, pastas and cookies! And OH, the spices! Next time I'll bring an empty suitcase just for the shopping at Central Grocery!

It's famous

The muffaletta was good and the place is cute in a dirty and dingy kind of way. The guys behind the counter are some of the most unhappy looking people I've encountered in a while. What was surprising to me was that after I ordered my sandwich, I saw swastikas tattooed on the knuckles of the guy who was ringing up my order. If I hadn't been showing a guest from another country the city, I'd have canceled my order. ... view more

Best Muffalatta

This is the BEST muffalatta sandwich I have ever eaten. The olive salad is EXCELLENT! The store is small, so I chose to go and sit in the park and eat. However, the store smells wonderful. I wanted to have some olive salad shipped to me, but it is expensive to do so, in my opinion, and I don't know that I could eat up 4 jars before it went bad. Wish I could just order 1 jar at a time. This is a favorite s... view more

From the mouth of babes

And when I asked my 5 year old granddaughter what she wanted for her upcoming birthday she told me how last year she remembered having the best sandwich in the world while in New Orleans and how friendly the ""sandwich man"" was and how high the stools were that she sat on. She asked for me to take her back again for another sandwich. Yes, Central Grocery--introducing yet another generation of my North Carolina f... view more

I love this place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I only get to New Orleans about once every 5 years, and this is usually the first stop I make when I get to the French Quarter. \r \r We were there at the beginning of January and had to wait in a short line to get a muffuletta It was worth every second!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love the atmosphere in the grocery, and the guys working there always make us laugh. \r \r It just doesn't get any better or more ""New Orl... view more

worst customer service ,don't waste your time or money!

i agree with cajun2008, the customer service here is horrible! I stopped going here years ago-you never get a hello, a welcome, a thankyou- you get nothing but unfriendly arrogant faces-and the sandwich isn't all that much to write about . i got better in my italian aunts kitchen. i can order just about any product they have in thier store online, never have to leave my house and get better ,friendlier customer servi... view more

Not the best Muffaletta, especially when you can't get one because they're out of bread!!!! What are you famous for and you can't keep bread on hand??? We were there on Saturday, December 27th and were told they were out of bread. We were all very upset and the owner had the nerve to tell my husband that ""IT'S JUST A SANDWICH, DON'T KNOW WHY YOU'RE SO UPSET"". He doesn't know or care how many people visit his f... view more
