Lorraine Heisel

Good quality &service

Lauren Pardee

Awesome food, great selection and all fresh. Definitely check out the sandwiches or order them for pick up before 3 PM. We bought the stuffed pork chop and it was delicious. The kielbasa snacks were amazing and the kraut with kielbasa was delicious. So much more to try out, only day it is closed is Sunday. Great place to buy dinner and have a sandwich at. Plenty of desserts as well.

Lauren Duquette

Incredible meats and salads to take away.We had a sandwich for lunch-veggie pannini for me, which was amazing ! I love the eggplant and fresh mozzarella. And my father enjoyed liverwurst on rye. Both came with delicious chips and a pickle-reasonable price and way too much to eat ! Always a treat when I'm in the area !

Paul Rickershauser

Great German Deli

John Chomiak

Mike Mozal

Best place around

Bill Hughes

Buying meat for the grill? Skip the supermarket chains, this is the finest butcher around. The staff will suggest cuts you will enjoy and that will delight your guests. They will offer you a dry rub and grilling tips. The deli section is superb!

joanne weigel

Beautiful cuts of meat, great prices and once you try it, you'll never get meat from a grocery store again!!

Richard Greene

Great food, great staff

Tommy RKaid

Food is pretty good. Staff could be friendlier. Eore took our order. Oh bother.

Guenter Timm

Have shopped there for 15 years. You are known to have a very large selection of German cold cuts and specialties preferred by old customers. The last two times we bought our favorite sausages we noticed a difference in flavor, more an absence of flavor. Perhaps some newer customers don't like the original spices that are used in the art of German sausage making. Or those spices have become too costly. It will keep us from buying Wieners, Frankfurters, Jagdwurst and Liverwurst. The smoked flavor is also missing. My friends now shop in Union County. The difference is remarkable. What we still like is your homemade Salami. It is still excellent. Will things change? G. T.

Steven Loures

Large selection of meats and butchery but staff and made to order food is lacking completely. The staff isn't helpful unless you're a regular and the made to order food is really just not good. The only reason this place is so popular is because there's no other competition in the area. Go if you have too get some specialty meat, but don't stay too long.

Donald Schon

If you like German food is the only place to go

Stephen Nagy

Always busy!

John Artois

No doubt the only place with the quality of products and service anywhere around. Not worth buying meats anywhere else. The reputation here was earned and well deserved. Thank you to everyone at the German Butcher Shop.

Joe Donnelly

I enjoy Saturday breakfast. Today I had pancakes and sausage. Very good. I also like the Jamaican coffee.

Michael Steinicke

Great butcher/deli, and food for lunch

Dawn White

Love this place

Ed Loegel

Reasonable price for lunch, great food.

Eden Dog

My favorite place for lunch ever. If I could pick one place to eat lunch in the entire country this would be the place (and I've lived all over the country). Excellent. Try them out, you won't be disappointed. When I was expecting my last child I'd nearly cry (ok, maybe once I really did cry) when my husband would surprise me with a sandwich from the German Butcher :-) This place is what food cravings are made of!! Highly recommend

Jennifer Reilly

Always delicious.

Mike Sanders

Hands down my favorite butcher shop in the area. Their meat is quality, and not that much more expensive than you could find in a grocery store. Their brine pork chops are simply out of this world. There's also a dine-in area, which can get a little crowded - but that's honestly just because of how great their food is!

Rosemary Schilb

They have the best of everything I love shopping there olive loaf I have ever had and all the meat and salads I would give a 10 if I could

Daniel Miller

Best deli in new Jersey love this place

Brad Sabo

Simply outstanding!!!

Tina Cheney

We had agreat lunch at Forked River German Butcher there was 6 of us ,and we all brought food for another meal

Regina Rush

A+ product, organized service, as they are extremely busy. A great variety of German and also eastern European foods in an area that is lacking in comparable options. I love the bread too!

kayt dodaro

This is an awesome shop!! Not only is it really pretty and unique, the food is exceptional and they carry cuts of meat I’ve been unable to find elsewhere. We just moved to the area and started shopping here a few months ago, but I’ve always been so impressed with it. Today I unwrapped meat I bought Friday and a portion of it didn’t look good. Initially I threw it out but then I called just to see if there was anything we could do to maybe replace the product. The guy I talked to was so nice, calm, and accommodating, but also explained what had likely caused the issue and offered me my choice of replacement or store credit. I was really happy with the way the issue was resolved and the professionalism of the person I spoke with. I have absolutely no negative comments for this butcher and recommend it every chance I get!

Diane Bottino

James Anne Reyes

Dorina Plesca

Best food and service!

Robert Norton

Delicious, fresh meats and food along with amazing service make the German Butcher the best butcher in the area. Their cold cuts are great for lunches and their flat iron steaks with dry rub on the grill makes for a savory dinner. If you're hungry when you go, they also have an eatery. The eatery is open 7am to 3pm but the rest of the store is open from 9am to 6pm.

Cyndis123 Stockhausen

Great service and great food

Rebecca Gee

Best Kielbasa you can get! Always friendly service and fast despite the lines. Even grabbed some fresh Jersey corn at check out.

Brad Coale

Awesome place for good quality meats, sides and breads, so if you're going to grill out it's by far the best place to stop in the area. They even have a small, but good quality selection of seafood (scallops & shrimp my last visit). You can also grab a bite to eat there which has always been good too.

melindaam1183 .

Jam packed butcher shop with a fantastic selection of meats and a bakery. Vegetables were available for purchase as well. Even though there were a ton of people around looking and buying, our number was called rather quickly too. Nice place to get your next dinner :)

Glenn Ascough

The Forked River German Butcher is a great destination for a delicious and filling lunch. Large portions made to order in just minutes await you taste buds. The location offers an exceptional menu at bargain prices and a friendly staff. Get there before lunch service ends for a true treat.

jailranger18121 .

Always have a good time here. Food is always fresh. I got some Landeager it a type of beef stick but it was overly spiced this time with liquid smoke very disappointed. Although this is the first time so I'll call the store tomorrow and see if they have any recommendations.

Tony A

Very nice place to shop and good staff

Dennis Dow

Good quick service and good selections

Chris Devita

Excellent sandwiches! We had the Italian pork and the roast beef panini. They were delicious. The brown gravy on the Italian pork sandwich was so good I could have licked the plate clean. The selection of pre-made foods was very impressive and let's not forget the fresh breads cooked daily. I got few items from the butcher shop section that I am looking forward to trying over the next couple of days.

Bob Berzito

Very good, quality. Nice people too..

Thomas Gilligan

Good food nice people

Carrie Gaboda

Huge variety of deli meats, sausages, prepared foods (pasta & potato salads etc), chicken things, beef, pork, stuffed get it. Pot pies and ham n cheese bread are A+, but everything I've had from here is excellent. It's "take a number" style service and you can start at one end of the store and go down the case to the end.

John Stracensky

Amazing food!

A great German butcher shop and a place to grab a bite

John D. Crosby

Great deli, bakery, and lunch counter.

David Benjamin

Took my dad there today for lunch. We both had the Reuben Panini (I also ordered a jalapeno hot dog just cause I had to). My only minor gripe is as I've read. If you've never been there and you walk in to eat there, you have no idea what the procedure is to order food. Long story short, they are busy and that's a good thing. BUT, there should either be a sign on the table saying "order at the counter, OR an "ORDER HERE FIRST" sign as no waitress ever comes to the table. I had to ask a passing person how it works. THAT being said, our sandwiches were very good. I wish I had more time (and hunger) to try the Weiner Schnitzel. All of their other meats and cheeses looked very good, as I've heard. Good time and Good food just the same. I will be back again !!

Sara Golzio

Love the meat and I will always go there to buy it because of the quality- but often they lack in the customer service department and you feel rushed all of the time.

steve macdougall

Food rocks at lunch counter and the butcher shop is awesome.
