    Although pricey, it doesn't matter what you pick out. This is probably the best butcher in the city with very knowledgeable employees. My personal favorite are the fresh Hungarian sausages.

    Great butcher shop and store. Expensive, but well worth it, for quality meats and homemade sausages of all types. I'll shop again!

    Your focus goes immediately to the divine sausages tucked into homemade bread; the chubby ground beef patties oozing with fresh, mild cheese; and the hearty bowls of bean soup.

    If you don't need butcher services, you don't have to take a number! Just go right up to the register and they'll check you out.

    Favorite butchers in the city. They're old, kind and more knowledgeable about meat than you.

    The Lamb sticks are awesome, the jerky is the best I've ever had. Get a rack of lamb cut into chops. Best meat market in Illinois.

    Jerky is cut to order, the best stuff in the store to snack on. Ask Brian to cut it to order, he knows his stuff.

    There is an entire cooling case devoted to Bratwurst. Think about that for a moment. Their Tomato/Basil Brats are divine. Read more

    Their sliced-to-order beef jerky is insanely good. It falls somewhere between dried beef and traditional beef jerky.

    People leaving a tip like "too expensive" - as compared to what? Jewel? You're buying high-quality (sometimes prime) meats. You get what you pay for.
