This was a great discovery. Small market that makes giant muffulettas that pack incredible taste. Truly one of the best sandwiches I have ever had. Centrally located in the French Quarter. A must must stop... If u like tasty sandwiches packed with olive goodness.

Always try and make this my first stop in the quarter and the quality of the sandwich has remained constant throughout the years.

Cool old store in the French Market area of the Quarter. Best known for it awesome muffuletta sandwiches, had one at the open top tables in the back of the store (with a cold beer of course!), magnifico! Be sure to throw a little Crystal hot sauce on the thing - Bam!! I even got a half sandwich to go.... More

Had been trying to get to this place for a while and check out this sandwich. Was well worth the walk from my hotel to get here. The only think in my opinion is it could have used a little more meat. Love it!

This place has the best Mufaletta in town! Right near the French market. Old historic store so don't be afraid to try the sandwich. You order at the checkout counter, they have sandwiches ready, they hand you one. They have counters at the back of the store, you can grab a stool and eat right there. They have many good... More

I had seen Central Grocery on TV several times, and REALLY wanted to try the original "Muffuketta". What a sandwich. I got a half for around $9.00, and I could not eat it all. The large round fresh bread, loads diced olives and deli meat. Makes me hungry for another just writing this review!

This place has the best Muffaletta in town! The grocery store itself is very interesting with many products I had not seen before. But the best part about this place is walking towards the back, ordering a Muffaletta and sitting down on one of the bar stools at the counter for this treat! A neat way to experience a New... More

This place is known for this one sandwich and they do it well. Initially taken aback by the price ($18) we realised it was all worth it after it fed 2 of us for lunch and dinner and was delicious! The front of the shop is a little grocery store with some lovely food, only wished we'd been here first... More

Known for its muffuletta, it's so much more. Get in line and check out the grocery while you ponder which sandwich you want. They have their own olive dressing which is a must. It's the main ingredient in their muffuletta and is also great on salads. Grab some canned goodies to take home if you don't have an Italian grocery... More

this is a great deli that served one of the better Muffaletas we had on our trip. this is definitely not a dress up place..... you sit in a long row on a crowded bench- but well worth it. We wanted to go back a second time !
