Moved to Forked River recently and everyone recommended going to the German Butcher. First of all, when was the last time you even went to a Butcher Store for your meats? Maybe 25 years ago because no one patronized them in North Jersey. I was amazed! Beautiful cuts of meat; delicious prepared foods; bread from North Jersey and you can... More

The prepared dishes are delicious with a lot to choose from, from potatoes and vegetables to cooked meats and chicken. The steaks are tender as well as the chicken. Also have seafood.

Never had a bad sandwich, and their market is chock-full of wonderful prepared foods in addition to traditional butcher items. An endless selection of wursts, dogs, salads, and more. Give yourself the night off from cooking. Yum!

This is a German Deli with table service. Pick your sandwich or entree and they bring it to your table. Everything looked so good and it was! Hot sandwiches were outstanding! Also there is a store section with all kinds of goods to take home. Highly Recommend!

When we first moved to Forked River, all we kept hearing from my Uncle was "The German Butcher". You would think he was a paid advertisement for this place. When we finally went, I quickly realized why he bragged about it so often. Anything you want or need could be found here. Not to mention, they have awesome lunch specials... More

This is possibly the best German Deli I have ever been to. I could say a lot of great things about it. They would all be true. You absolutely have to go there and experience it for yourself. I like the home made liver worst and the home made salami. The prepared food delicious, and the meats fresh and cut... More

Being on the west coast now I have dreams of this place. Fresh rye, fresh meats, and all the different 'wursts I could ever want. I came here all the time with my Oma and it's one of my favorite places in the world.
