We had the Cuban sandwich and the muffaletta, both pressed. Very tasty, a nice twist on these classic sandwiches. Very nice staff who were willing to change up my sandwich a bit because I'm always one of those who doesn't like this or that. Also, the brownie?? To die for. Hmmm...maybe they should press the brownies too. I'd try that... More

Came here after exploring some of the houses in the Gardent District and had some great sandwiches. The two people behind the counter were clearly passionate about the food and helped us decide what we should order. I had to ask a few annoying questions about the special because I'm pregnant. As we were finishing up, the guy behind the... More

Offering some of the best sandwiches and soups in New Orleans The Grocery is located on St. Charles Avenue at the edge of the Garden District. Prices are reasonable, food is very good and you can eat outside on the Avenue or inside (check out the original art on the walls). The gumbo is one of the best in New... More

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.
