Default Best Butchers in Dallas?

The Chicago thread asking the same question got me wondering. I always use either the grocery store or Costco and would like to know if someone has a better option. Thanks

I went to a "butcher shop" on Preston in Plano, but it was mostly high end, dry aged meats they were promoting. That, and their store made sausages and fine wines. It was a very "boutique" shop with prices to match.

I am going down to Kuby's near SMU this week to get some authentic German stuff for Oktoberfest cooking. They have a meat market that is supposed to be good. I know they make great sausages.

I hadn't seen this. Not in Dallas but Hirsch's in Plano has some good stuff.

Thanks for the responses. I am in N Dallas so I might have to give Hirsch's a try. I also saw one (online) in Frisco called Matador Meat and Wine that is close to me.

Caseydog I will be looking forward to see what you do with that German food. I am a big fan. I head over to Germany once a year and can't get enough of the food.

Dickie's Meats in Lewisville is the real deal. I have relatives nearby and have cooked some of their stuff when visiting.

Matador is the one I mentioned earlier. It is actually in Plano, not Frisco.

Is that the same as Old Town Market?

Hirsch's is a good bet on the north side.

Rudolph's in Deep Ellum has great beef and has been around forever. As a bonus it is few doors down from The Mozzarella Company that has a good selection of locally produced artisan cheeses.

I've been there. (Actually it's in Plano off Preston south of 121.)

It's ok but I prefer Hirch's.

Whoops just saw Casey's post regarding Matador.

Germandeli.com in Colleyville imports authentic German food. Love their Nurenberger brats.

Yes, I believe it is. It has been a few years but I really liked their selection of meats.

Hirch's is pretty terrific. Last time there I picked up a Wagyu tri-tip that was pretty reasonably priced and melted like butter. If you go, leave yourself some time to visit with the staff - they know and love what they do.

That settles it, I am walking into Hirch's on Friday afternoon with an open mind and leaving with something I can't get at the grocery store or Costco. Thanks for the responses.

I agree with everyone on Hirsch's. Before we had access to RD, they were my go to meat market.
