Long lines here for their iconic sandwich, but they are still fast and fresh. Good bread, Italian cold cuts and cheese, with the olive relish - I liked it.

If there is a line 50 people deep outside an eatery, chances are it's good and the Muffuletta @ Central Grocery absolutely was. I'm a big fan of the sub, love the Hoagie and now am obsessed with this New Orleans Speciality. I can't tell you anything more than these other reviewers or the Tourguide Books, but I will tell...

It is a shop with some space for sitting and eating food. Sandwitch is good (and huge). Taste is particular. If weather is nice, there is a park along Missisipi river just across Deactur str. where one can sit and eat looking at... the brown water and the industrial area! :P Suggested for something quick and easy.

Grab and go - muffelata, Zapps chips and an Abita beer. Perfect for lunch or picnic dinner. I see other posts about it being expensive. Half a sandwich and chips was plenty for two.

The outside is unassuming and the inside of the grocery store (it really is a little grocery store with a deli) looks like it hasn't been changed in many, many years. You don't really go there for the groceries though, you go for the amazing muffuletta! I had been reluctant to try the sandwich because of the olive spread (I... More

Its a nice deli but always busy and can be more expensive for a muffalettea I think given the location.

Waited all weekend for their muffaletta. The olive spread is to die for....if you love olives. I wasn't disappointed.

This is not a sit down restaurant. You get in line and order either a half or a whole. Its a simple concept and the mufallata is worth the price. Very limited seating inside, so take it to go! Staff is very much about keeping the lines moving, so they may seem pushy. Recommend trying this place to develop your... More
