Everything at this place is sooooo good. Their stew meat is the best, their snacks like string cheese, happy sticks and jerky is hands down the best of anywhere. Hamburger is awesome. Its the only place we go get meat and have for years. Ben eating meat from this place for at least 25 years. The price is good and hope they don't charge a thing.

Fantastic meat market! Stopped by to stock up on sliced cheeses - swiss, super hot, havarti dill, cojack - smoked cheese sticks, sliced ham, smoked ham and fresh herring. Looking forward to enjoying these tasty and reasonably priced favorites! Check the hours to be sure they are open and allow some time for the line tended to by the friendly and helpful staff while enjoying the rich aromas in this Main Street shop.

Wow this has to be the "Best Family Owned and Run Meat Market in America"! Bob & Mary carry on the multi generational family traditions of this long time family owned business. They have a Wonderful Staff that is always happy to see and help us! All of their Meats are Fresh Cut every day! They are always happy to help you with special orders too!

You just expect places to be open at noon on a Wednesday. I have tried multiple times to go to this shop but it is never open. A business that is only open 3 days a week cant expect much business or customer loyalty. Afraid i am done trying.

Ryan Doliber

We've been going to Elk River Meats for 10+ years for steaks, bacon, and burgers. The staff and food quality is always great. I enjoy supporting this small business and bringing my kids to get "happy sticks", string cheese and root beer.

Bejay Rahn

They make some delicious beef sticks called happy sticks, also sell smoked string cheese. Bought some polish sausage links which are smoked. Just have to heat and eat.

Great prices for phenomal quality. It feels like stepping back 50 years in time. Customer service and quality is number one. I have tried just about everything there and it is all better than you can get at any grocery store. For a treat try the jerky. It is unlike any other that I have had.

Neale Haugen

I come here all the time! The meat is from local sources, and the quality is out of this world! Sometimes I go there just for the delicious smell of smoked meat. You've gotta try the smoked pork-chops!

I have waited to post my review because because I secretly hoped that the Yuppies with their Platinum cards would not find out about this meat market. Thanks WCCO, you screwed that up. Possibly the best meat market in the Twin Cities. Customer service is through the roof. Steve

Alexander Bazant

This place is a classic. When you walk inside, you feel like you took a time machine back to the 40s. Everybody there knows each other, prices are great, and food is amazing.
