    I could live in this grocery store! Amazing staff, great selection of everything you can think of, & fresh squeezed juices. Take advantage of free samples. They're EVERYWHERE.
  • Bernabe C.
    Large store with perishable amenities. Not structured like a regular supermarket, so no pharmacy type stuff to be found here.

    Central Market in general is fantastic, but the layout of this one sucks. Frantic, stressful, crowded.

    Great place for breakfast and lunch. Breakfast portions are generous. Great place for the family. If ordering waffles for the kids, I suggest a half order as the waffles are the size of the plate!

    This place is amazing. Anything you could want in a grocery store. Meat and seafood are especially fresh with actual fishmongers and butchers. A good amount of local produce, too! A true Texas gem.

    For people buying "natural" "organic" foods and such. They sure do give off bad energy. Like store. Hate the people. Even the employees (cashiers ok) more of the floor people are pretentious as FUCK

    Whole Foods is great...but Central Market gives them a run for their money. The butchers are always very helpful...call ahead if you need them to prep a special cut for you.

    Ok BBQ should only be consumed at a place that specializes in BBQ especially brisket. It just lacks that flavor to be good BBQ. Stick with what they do well burger, pizza etc when ordering.

    I saw a six pack of Faygo in bottles for eight bucks. That sums up my experience here. Why subject yourself to such prices? Just go to Whole Foods if you're that pretentious.
