“Best Mufallata I ever had.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2012

I couldn't wait to take my Italian cousin here to enjoy the mufallata. We even bought extra to take back to our hotel. Immediately when you walk in you are surrounded by the aroma and flavors of a good Italian deli. Wanted to stay there all afternoon.

“Really? An Hour Wait for an OK Sandwich?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

Well, we did it. We waited in line an hour to eat a sandwich that was supposed to be famous. More like infamous - dont get what the big deal is - bread, olive salad, one very thin slice of 3 kids of meat and cheese. whooppee. Not inpressed. But - it is an institution, and it is clean, and the service as great once you got waited on, and the staff was friendly and helpful, so......

“The Best Muffalettas on the planet!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2012

Not too many things can beat a Central Grocery muffaletta. If you like olives and good italian meats, you will adore this sandwhich. Pick one up and eat it at the French Market while listing to a jazz band... it will be one of your best memories ever....

“Yeah, go for the muffuletta.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2012

It's in the French Quarter; it's an old, quaint Italian grocery; they make a damn fine sandwich called a muffuletta. Grab a cold root beer, split a sandwich with a travel partner, grab a stool in back, and enjoy. Far from fancy, but damn close to great.
