Ok, please do not turn around and leave when you walk in this place. Their food is very good for what the outer appearance may tell you. I had to walk up to the guy behind the counter to tell him that the gumbo I had ordered was the best I had eaten in our one week trip to New... More

There is a sign right where you order your food that says "if you receive your food in 15 minutes it will be a miracle"! They are right. Although it is a busy place, it should not take 40 minutes to get one BLT sandwich! People that walked in after me were receiving their food! The sandwich was very puny... More

I must confess, I’ve not eaten here (other than a bag of chips to go) as we always tend to stop after eating at Commander’s Palace. I can say all of the sandwiches I’ve seen made from here look great and the people I’ve spoken with say they are quite tasty. We tend to stop here to have a beverage... More

After a morning of sight seeing we had worked up quite the appetite. We found "The Grocery"on Google. The Grocery is small, has about 5 inside tables and about 5 out side tables. It is located next to street car stop. They had a small but good selection of cold adult refreshments. Their Gumbo was great. Sandwiches are made to... More

Never been there before, so had them coach us. We ended up with a paninni like muffuletta, delish and a roast beef poorboy that was outstanding. Not sure which was better! Very friendly, answered my questions and gave a good recommendation for tomorrow breakfast.

I work close by and need to get in and out quickly. They are always ready to take care of that with a smile and great sandwich.

I got the muffalato (sic) and cream soda before garden district tour. Sandwich was made panini style (pressed). Very good. The place is like a corner deli. Funky artwork on sale hanging on walls. I would go again.

We spent a very HOT morning wandering around the Garden district and then stumbled upon the Grocery deli so we stopped on to cool off and grab some food. A relaxed, chilled out place. Great pressed sandwiches and shakes. They signs say, be prepared to wait so we did. It was worth the wait. Some times you need to stop... More

We had heard great things about this little place, so we made our way ove. It took an hour to get four sandwiches and many people that came in after us left with food before we got ours. We finally gave in and ate our chips because we we're so hungry. The place wasn't that busy.

My husband and I stood in the long line for a muffaletta and this small deli. The line went quick, however and was a pleasant experience. We ordered a whole muffaletta to share. It was huge, so good thing they cut it in quarters so it was easier to eat. I loved the olive spread on the sandwich, but my... More
