Stopped by to get some t-bone steaks for a family gathering... the gentleman who helped me cut the steaks right in front of me, then trimmed them. I grilled them last night, and WOW! Tender, juicy, and absolutely delicious. Everyone loved them and wanted to know where I got them from. Thank you for providing such amazing meat; it brought my family together and was the highlight of the evening. Mike from West Orange, NJ

I've been picking up my Thanksgiving turkey from John's Meat Market for the past 20 years. They always have the freshest and best tasting meats. Service is impeccable, and I usually end up with a pie or two on top of that!

Chris Paola

Dwight Gittleman

Went to John's with my best friend Chris.We bought 2, 2 inch thick bone in Rib Eyes and 2, 2 inch thick NY Strip. Nick and Vinny and all the guys were very accommodating. They went into the dry age cooler and let us pick out the steak we wanted and cut in to order for us. By the way we got there 20 minutes before they closed and couldn't be happier to help us. I have eaten Johns steaks before and I will tell you it's not just a steak it's an experience! We can't wait to grill these bad boys up and savor the flavor! Thank You Johns for the great steaks and great service. Dwight and Chris

Outstanding quality steaks and very knowledgeable staff.

Kasey Thompson

Excellent service, friendly staff, and I've never run into the problem I've had in other places where I've been condescended to or outright ignored while an employee spoke to my boyfriend instead of me

Daniel Greenspan

I was told their briskets are prime. Bought a bunch this summer. Always comes out dry. Thought it was me. Till I bought a prime brisket from creekstone and it was amazing. Went to Johns today to pick up some food. Brisket was in original wrapper and it said choice. So I’ll never be back. Overpriced and a bunch of liars.

Chef Chrissie Lapidow

Unbelievable selection, great service, friendly staff. Well worth the drive! They custom cut the meat I needed (and couldn't find anywhere else) and had fresh prepared foods and boars head cold cuts! I can't wait to go back.

Peggy Slough

Faron Kastner

Very well pleased with this facility. The seasonsings are very good for meat processing as well.

John Gibson

Peter Mui

Great meat. Excellent aged steak.

Robin Musso

There is no better place to get the best quality meats. The guys behind the counter are the nicest and most knowledge staff in the area. From cuts of meat to cooking instructions, John's maintains an expert staff. The prepared dinners, chili and side dishes are fabulous. The marinating and BBQ sauces are better than any supermarket brand. One stop shopping and the friendliest staff make John's a unique store.

Amazing quality

My "big son" moved to Colonia and mentioned John's shortly afterwards. On my way to his house in July 2015, I picked up the 3 LB Burger Special ($11.79) and splurged on a 2 LB sirloin. They call it "The Peter Lugar Steak" (or something to that effect), which is probably not so accurate, the explanation was that Lugar got the right (or was it left) quarter of the steer and John's took the other. But it was GREAT! $17.95 per LB and well worth it, as is the hamburger. I picked up another 2.5 LB sirloin and some hamburger last month that my big son, my 8 YO and I shared as "the girls" were at a baby shower, along with some hamburger. We all had 1 burger (big son had 2) and the steak, even "the little guy" asked for "more" 5 times. I can't believe that we atel the whole thing! No complaints, maybe I'll try a rib eye or a strip steak next time, but man-o-man, that sirloin is the bomb! Both steaks blew away some Piedmontese Sirloin that I brought over, which is also outstanding, but no comparison to John's Sirloin. Maybe Peter Lugar should start advertising theirs as "The John's Meat Market Sirloin".

This is a great meat market, especially the Butcher Vinnie, My parents lived in South Carolina where you just could not get good prime meat, so i would order it from them and have it shipped. Vinnie took my orders and did the shipping and I know my parents enjoyed it as they live in a gated community where the only butcher store carries 'choice' and smoked everything. I stop sending meat down when my dad died 2 years ago but will always be grateful to Vinnie and the whole staff for making it possible for my dad to have super-quality meat in the last years before he died.

Edward Zazzali

By far best butcher in the state

Jeff Frasco

I have been to multiple butcher shops over the years. Bought Three Ribeye's for $120.00. The quality of the meat wasn't that great for the price. I will go elsewhere.There were no quality rubs or marinades like other butcher shops. Price was too high for the quality.

Don Fodor

Great quality and equally as great service.

Superb Service, Quality, and Selection. I was looking to make a traditional roast dinner for some friends. I gave Brian the recipe I had and he trimmed and tied the perfect piece of prime rib for me. He and Vinnie gave me great tips on making the gravy, and on roasting the meat to perfection. I even got some great advice on the Yorkshire Pudding recipe that I was going to attempt! This butcher shop is very clean and the selection of meats is fantastic. Vinnie, who I assume is the owner, takes great pride in continuing his father's legacy in the business. The dedication to offer only the best selections shines through in the excellent attention to customer service. I left with a wonderful roast, and the confidence to prepare a great dinner. I prepared the roast according to their directions, FANTASTIC! My friends loved the roast and raved how delicious it was! the meat was tender, flavorful and with great advice from Brian, I was able to make the most delicious gravy from the drippings! Awesome meat = Awesome gravy! Thank goodness for the Yorkshire Puddings so not a drop of it would go to waste. You'd be hard pressed to find a friendlier, more helpful, or better butcher shop and I consider the half hour drive to patronize John's well worth the trip if it were twice as far.....Plenty of free parking on the street is a bonus. We have found a gem in Scotch Plains and our new "go to" butcher!

John Doe

Quality meats. A little pricy but old school quality and practice. Beats some mass produced junk meat any day. Great steaks.

John's is an old-style butcher with fantastic quality meat. The butchers work with you to help you pick the best cut for your purpose. Whenever we want really great meat for entertaining, we go to John's.

We purchase fine meat products here all the time. Today, I had interaction with Nick, one of the owners, and can personally attest to the top notch customer service he bestowed upon me. I highly recommend, and will continue to do business with them in the future.
