I was surprised by the good to great remarks about this establishment! Unfortunately the meat did not look that good. They carry only 'choice' quality, and for that I can go to a supermarket. Asking for a beef tenderloin I was told to buy a whole of about 3 Kg! Asking for a nice and thick porc chop, I was... More

Michigan transplants own this shop, and have very good butchered select from the case meats, deli meats, cheeses and salads, pies and desserts, condiments, etc.. They are very friendly and accommodating. No problem getting a single cut of meat, which is nice for single individuals. They will even bacon-wrap your fillets for you.

They are accommodating and the meats are delicious & will just melt in your mouth. You will pay a little more than at the supermarket but well worth it if you want... More

This is a butcher shop we have been going to for probably 30 years. Awesome meat and prices. Tastes great. The people become part of your family.

This place is really great. The owners have fresh meat that can be ordered - such as the whole leg of lamb with bone I ordered for Christmas dinner. They have homemade soups, salads and desserts, too.
