“Grill Em”
Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

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!

“Chicken fajitas a wonderful surprise of flavor”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

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 perfectly seasoned marinade made them ideal for my needs. They were fabulous; definately comparable to good restaurant-level meal!

About FALSE WARNING of MSG: The MSG myth is just that, primarily myth. MSG is the sodium salt of glutamic acid, one of the most abundant naturally occurring non-essential amino acids. It enhances flavors so that less salt is used in foods. Researchers have found no definitive evidence of a link between MSG and headaches, hot flashes, or other symptoms of illness. Every product that contains MSG has that ingredient clearly labled on the food. There is no need to post false "warnings" unless you are attempting to hurt a legitimate business.

“If you want a good steak...”
Reviewed March 7, 2012

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 quality meats.

“great meat market”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

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!

“Good products, but made with MSG (monsodium glutamate).”
Reviewed October 28, 2010

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