Something the locals really enjoy is Herman Meat's traditional Saturday barbeque. They grill hamburgers, sausage, franks and ribs. Locals bring lawn chairs, chat and enjoy a good meal. The ribs were fine with a nice dry rub that was delicious workout being to spicy. Yum!

It's not every day that you find a place where you can buy frog legs, rabbit or alligator bites. I used to buy all of my meat here when I lived closer. Every Saturday they offer some grilled/barbecued food on their outside cooker. It's a real yummy lunch.

Hermanns is the old school butcher shop you grew up with. Fantastic meats, house made hot dogs, sausages, kielbasa and baked goods. Better quality than the big supermarkets and more personalized service.

This gem is hidden in a neighborhood but well worth the hunt to find it! Realitively new owner Dominic stocks the freshest meat and poultry and the pricing is very good. Come Saturday and enjoy the BBEdit hotdogs and brats from the grill outdoors. Oh.... Home made sugar free pies and cookies. Deli offers everything! We are here weekly! Try... More

Herman meats get's it right. They have a fantastic variety and even some exotics that you rarely find. Always fresh, no problem with special orders and great customer service.

Do you want a place where you can still walk up to the meat counter and find a nice man named "Domenic" and ask him about the cuts of meat, or to prepare a tenderloin roast for you and give you his opinion, only when asked, on the best way to cook it? Then this is the place to go!... More

Many people seem to rave about Herman's. They offer a wide selection of meats and deli items, but I found the store to be rather dirty and dated. They were grilling sausages and selling them, so I decided to try one. The flavor was good, but the texture was like sawdust.

Being new to the neighborhood, I had to stop by to see why there are so many good reviews. It was like a visit to a local meat market and grocery from long ago. Excellent meats, local vegetables, and even a little deli. I brought home some sausage and some fresh Chicken. They made wonderful meals.
