  1. I would like a bone in prime rib suitable for 5 adults I would like a fat cap for this prime rib for Christmas, can this be done?
    Jim D.

    1. Yes, that is do-able. Just make sure you tell the butcher at any of our 2 locations how you want it, and he can accommodate. 🙂

    1. Well you can buy it now and freeze it until a couple days before. Then let it thaw for two days. But if you want it fresh, 3 days in advance is okay.

  2. Is it possible to buy a 2-3 pound beef tenderloin? I am having a small dinner party – 4 people. I would like it trimmed and tied. And how much is it per pound?

    1. Yes we can do that for you. Just tell any of our butchers that you want a 2-3 pound and tell them you want it trimmed and tied…they will gladly do that for you. See our weekly specials for more info.
