Meat is excellent, everything else is ok

After hearing people rave about this place, I finally decided to try it. I just found it ok. The meats were very good, but the rest was just ok. The bread was just regular boring bread, almost on the sweet side, and I think the bread is what makes the sandwich. The servings were big and the value... read more

From the outside it looks like an old country store, when you open the door you smell seasoning! Great! The list of different sandwiches are a lot with a great selection. The Tide and Tiger are good or the Goldenburg or the Fantastic Fred's. If you buy meats there, be sure to let them season them.

There is no better butcher anywhere in the state of Alabama. The filets dry-rubbed with Mr. P's seasoning is better than any restaurant at which we've ever eaten.

Butcher and sandwich restaurant in one. Order at the counter. Sandwich meat is fresh and bread is also fresh. Great lunch spot. Keep meaning to order for the butcher shop. Great marinade and good wine selection.

I found Mr P's by chance while I was working in Homewood. I used to take the long way home once a month or so to stop in and pick up one of their monthly special meat packages. For $99, you end up with a box full of freezer ready meats that will feed a family of two for most... More

The sandwiches here are amazing. The meat is also good if you wish to bring some home with your groceries. The staff is very friendly as well. I visit here as often as I can.

The best sandwich in town. The selection is great, I've tried the Cajun ham and turkey, the turkey and chicken. The butcher shop is over the top and the prices are very competitive. Worth the drive.

My husband and I go to Birmingham quite frequently to visit the "grands" and Mr. P's is one of our favorite spots to enjoy lunch. They have a good variety of sandwiches on their menu to enjoy right there and you can also get good quality meats to take home. Also, Pelleteri's original marinade and rub for meats and vegetables...

First, this is what I would've expected to find in a small hometown butcher shop and deli. This is my go-to place for lunch on Saturday (or anytime) and my go-to place for meat. The sandwiches are excellent and there are several combinations (meat, cheese, bread, sauce, etc) to choose from. You can also purchase anything you have for lunch... More

Went here multiple times when my friend was in college...awesome butcher shop that serves sandwiches during lunch time. Mr. P the owner is usually there to greet you with a smile. The "Papa Jake" is my favorite. Cajun Ham, Cajun Turkey, and Pepper Cheese. SOOO Good!!
