My daughter and I stopped in after a walking tour of the Garden District. I had read they had the best grilled shrimp Po Boy, but didn't see it on the menu. I asked, and he said they could make their pressed sandwich with grilled shrimp, which is on French bread. We halved that, and it was so delicious with... More

We were so hungry after tooling around in the Garden District and touring the cemetery and homes for about 3 hours. The Grocery popped up as a close by lunch spot, so we looked past the somewhat ramshackle conditions inside and ordered. Had a very good muffuletta and two vegetarian sandwiches, plus the brie and mushroom soup was surprisingly amazing.... More

We had a roast beef with gravy po' boy (per recommendation) and gumbo and it was one of the simplest but best meals we had during our whole visit! The gravy made the sandwich super sloppy but we were licking our fingers by the end. Gumbo was also hearty and with perfect spice.Great way to fill our bellies before walking... More

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
