Van Hanson's is a wonderful meat market in the Twin Cities. Their products are fabulous and I highly recommend them to anyone Needing products from a Butcher, but as a restaurant you may need to bring your own grill and cook in the parking lot (probably not allowed).

Von Hanson's is the place to stop for the best selection of fresh cut meat and a wonderful selection of sausages and sides. I make it my stop for special occasions and when I need to serve the best potato salad and cole slaw at a family gathering. Their support of local organizations is terrific and I always look forward... More

Over priced with questionable ratings on its beef. Some beef sold is commercial quality and sold as choice. Nothing here you can't get at Cub or Byerlys for less.

When we're smoking a brisket, this is our first choice. We also love their meat sticks and jerky. We sent a care package to a Navy friend, and apparently it made for some excellent currency! They have a nice selection of complementary breads, buns, produce, and sauces. Their house BBQ sauce is excellent and very reasonably priced!

I always enjoy shopping at this place. For grilling or entertaining, you can't beat the selection of sausages and cuts of meat. They also work with community organizations to sell hot dogs in front of their stores.

We come here at least once a week for their meats. The family favorite is the sundries tomato basil chicken. Everyone is friendly and good at recommendations. If you're looking for something to throw on the grill worth your money-- go to Von Hansens!

I stopped for a few steaks and ground beef, but added the chicken fajitas since they were sale priced and I had a BOGO Free cpn. I figured I couldn't go to far wrong if VH sold them. I love the superior taste and texture of meats that have not been frozen, and the prep of onions and peppers with... More

Go to Von Hanson's! The courteous, friendly and personable service reminds one of a time past, when people knew and trusted their neighborhood butcher to give them helpful tips on the best cuts and ideas for cooking them up. It is a little more expensive than going to a chain supermarket, but it's well worth the extra money to get... More

Very nice meat markets throughout the Twin Cities. Good meats, nice jerky, decent selection of many varieties of meats,cuts and processed products. Little more expensive than I would like but the products are of quality you can taste over supermarkets. I pop in anytime I am close by!

Most of the home made products from Von Hanson's contain MSG. Ask butcher if products contain MSG before you buy.
