I purchased 2 ribeye steaks from here. The first thing that got o me was that the butcher/employee used his hands to pick up the meat instead of wearing gloves. To me that's discussing because I don't know if his hands were clean or not. Shrugged this off because cooking may kill any bacteria anyways. Took the meat home and marinated it overnight in the fridge of course. Grilled it the next day for me and my boyfriend and about an hour after eating it felt very sick! Luckily I took medicine and made me feel better! My boyfriend then was vomiting about three hours later! DO NOT buy meat here! I usually buy meat from Costco or the grocery store and it's great but I will never buy it here again. I don't know why this place has a good rating. Being a but her shop will make them prone to keeping the meat longer and I probably bought bad meat!

Polite staff. However after buying their prime beef and running in to a significant amount of it that was not chewable I went back in to talk to them. Keep your receipt if you shop there. That probably won't help though.

Just an excellent place ! For the price you will not find better quality meats. The employees are friendly and can cater to special request depending on what it is.

I've used this as my go to meat shop for years & until recently have had nothing but the best service. I cannot say anything bad about the quality, the steaks I've purchased have been of outstanding quality, howeve it's obvious they lack proper customer service. I asked for 1.25 lbs of filet, after 15 mins in the back preparing it and being asked 3 times to verify weight I was given 1.83 lbs, when I questioned it, the response was "it's just a little bit over" sure, a half pound over adds an additional 10$, when I questioned it again I was told "sorry we're really busy" it was obvious they weren't going to adjust the weight so I paid for it and stewed over it for the afternoon. After getting home I noticed they overcharged me 2$ a pound on a cheese purchase too & my meat wasn't seasoned which I had requested. I understand it was busy, but I expected to be treated better. I think future purchases will be made at different shops closer to home. If you want great meats, go to van balls, if you want good service and don't want to double check your charges... go elsewhere.
