Went here for lunch one day to get a Muffaletta and man was it worth it! you can either get a whole or half and if you are not sharing with anyone I strongly suggest the half because it is quite large! the store gets very crowded and there is limited seating but It is definitely worth the visit!!

loved the different taste of each item in the sandwich! The sesame seeds on top of the bread gave it such a better taste. The olive salad used to top he meats with were fresh tasting.

I was so looking forward to returning to Central Grocery for a muffelatta again. We got there around 10:30 AM. There was no line.

We popped in here and grabbed a quick Muffuletta and beers to enjoy at the park. The service was fast and friendly and the Muffuletta was GREAT!

Amazing muffulettas. We just had our order to go, so we didnt stay long. The grocery store is more specialty and high end items.

The muffuletta us the best of any in New Orleans. They are perfect. There are other foods, but the sandwich is it. The place is clean and the staff is wonderful. I wondered how it would be after hurricane Katrina. It's was back and busy.

Although known for their muffalato sandwiches, Central Grocery had an unbelievable selection of food goods. It was fun shopping here.
