We just moved here and I am having a hard time finding good quality meats (other than driving out and paying an arm and a leg at Whole Foods). Kroger and ValuMart just aren't cutting it.

Any suggestions within a reasonable distance from Cherokee Triangle? I found a few fish markets (the one in St. Matthews) but no butchers.

PS -- I would prefer naturally raised meats, if at all possible.

Burger's Super Market at 1105 Ray Ave (actually on Grindstead Drive, across from Cave Hill Cemetary) and Kingsley Meats at 2701 Taylorsville Road... good stuff, though may not be cheap.

Frank's on Preston Highway near Audubon Park/Fairgrounds is kind of a dumpy looking place but his meats are AWESOME! He also has great lunch specials where he gives you massive portions for around 6 bucks. You may also try Kingsley on Taylorsville Road close to Bardstown Road and Karem Deeb's is another kind of dumpy looking place in that area that is still good. If those three fail, get back to me and I will ask around. Seeing as I live downtown close to wonderful restaurants with nice meat specials, I rarely cook myself!

Ha, I am no Hannibal I do enjoy the fine dining of Louisville's downtown restaurants though! Speaking of which, I never get excited about chains, but I think the new Wolfgang Puck's Express will offer a nice new fast casual and cheaper option for downtown residents besides some of the pizza and ethnic eats/bars that are the mainstay of cheaper restaurants downtown in the evening. I can't afford a 40 dollar steak from Ruby's or an innovative Salmon dish from Proof every Tuesday night I decide to eat out!

Do these butchers/meat markets sell ham bones? I mean the actual bone with scraps of meat attached. They provide good seasoning when cooking bean soups. Many thanks!

If they have them, I hope they aren't expensive. The last ham bone I bought at Giant (grocery store) cost $8 seven years ago, which I thought was awfully pricey.

Last week, I thought I'd check to see if I could get a ham bone and asked the meat dept. at Safeway if they were selling any this year. They explained to me that they didn't do the actual chopping of the meat back behind the counter (as in hacking and whacking at sides of meat hanging from the ceiling). If I had had any dignity, I would have been embarrassed; but being who I am, I wasn't. I settled for ham hocks. Maybe it's only Harris Teeter up here who has a butcher on the premises. I thought they all did, but apparently not.

So you all can snicker: Hams at Safeway were running $18, $20, and $25 depending upon size. No siree, Bob. Pass.

Thanks for all of the wonderful suggestions! I went to Burgers and loved it! It is really close to my home.

I believe so, my husband gets them for my dogs. I bought a whole country ham recently for about 20.00 at Pic Pac.

FYI, for future reference, all food related questions should be posed on this the forum at:

LouisvilleHotBytes.com

I can't emphasize how knowledgable these foodies are and many of Louisville's top chefs are also posters. I browse the site often to get word of new places and general eats talk.
