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

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

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