Reviews for The Local Butcher Shop

Yeah I don't know what happened but I came in to get a leg of lamb. They had some cuts without the bone. I just wanted the whole leg bone in. The guy then gets out the lamb, cuts the leg off, cuts the ankle, de bones it just like I did not ask for, then realized he messed up and wraps the meat around the bone and ties it, hoping I wooudlnt notice. Also charged me by the pound for it like the bonless cut could be... These are your butchers. He had a cool mustache though

Everything I’ve ever eaten from The Local Butcher Shop has been incredible. From Duck confit, to lamb, to sausages, everything is handmade and so fresh. Today we celebrated Burn’s Night for the first time (my husband is Scottish) with haggis and it was delicious. Perfect amount of spice and better consistency than the haggis we’ve had in Aberdeen, Scotland. Thank you Aaron and team!!

I ordered a haggis from Local Butcher for a Robert Burns Day (which we celebrated a wee bit early), as a foodie friend of mine recommended. Coming from San Francisco, it was a drive, and a wondered whether the trip would be worth it. It was.

I spend several days in Edinbugh last year during which I tried some of the best haggis the city had to offer. The haggis from Local Butcher was comparable. The flavor was spot-on and texture was perfect, a good balance of meaty full review
