Reviews for The Local Butcher Shop

A local business with high quality meats and other provisions. They make and sell very good bone broth and sell great tortillas, excellent house made lard based pie crusts (best crust I've had since Andronicos closed which used to sell French Picnic), and avocados. Try their pork broth based Ramen kit - delicious. Their employees are well trained and friendly. Sandwiches, house made jerky, and cookies are absolutely fantastic. Customer service is excellent.

This place should be called "The Loco Butcher Shop". Outrageous prices! Can get the same or better quality meats at many other places in Berkeley at half of the prices charged here. E.g., $33.00/lb for pork tenderloin which had more fat and silver skin than I have ever found on pork tenderloins costing $13 to $15/lb. Since posting my honest review, based on my actual experience with this "butcher shop", they have emailed me "wanting to talk" (I ignored it) and this morning full review
Well, they are pricey, but the meat is amazing and everyone behind the counter is kind and willing to answer whatever question you ask about meat, no matter how small the portion of meat you happen to buy. Also, during our shelter-in-place, they win the prize for the only food shop that has managed to deliver everything in my order! I was able to order for next day delivery, so it seems they still have capacity for delivering locally. The rillettes, the British bacon, the full review
