Vast display of meats & smoked wurst--one of a kind place. Buy a sandwich or take home meats, chicken, pork & beef for dinner. They smoke their own meats.You'll consider it a real find & will be eager to return.

We shop here once a week for sausages, and other specialties as needed. Always top quality meats, you don't have to be knowledgeable to enjoy well made special items here.
