Good news in Gustine: Wolfsen's Sausage returns July 3!

Per the Modesto Bee today Wolfsen's will return next week after burning down in 2005. Their website: http://www.wolfsensausage.com/

I think their stuff approaches that of Lockeford Meat & Sausage located east of Stockton and Lodi.

      They open Monday, July 3. Article from the Modesto Bee: http://www.modbee.com/business/story/... reports that they now make 62 kinds of sausage but I am not sure about the Portugeuse type. However that part of Stanislaus county does have a large population from the Azores so I would guess they may have it. Give them a call- they are wonderful people.

      Yes they do have linguica. It is to die for. I have tried it from many other places when they were down due to the fire and theirs is by far the best.

      They also have a few sausages that you can't find anywhere. A few of my favorites:

      Spicy Hawaiian
      Jalepeno Cilantro
      The also have an arthichoke one that is very good.

        My sister lives in Gustine finding Wolfsens was the best thing that could of happened. When they burned down, our flags were flying at half staff, it was a tragedy. I live in San Jose and make 2 trips up a month just to stock up on sausage and meats. Not only do I go for myself, I walk around the office and take orders for sausage. We recently tried:
        smoked cranberry and turkey with basil - AWESOME one of the best
        still can't beat the smoked ham/swiss or the cheesy bavarian.
        I don't leave there without spending at least $100.00. And so worth it, the ribeyes you can cut with a fork-no knife needed.
        If you are driving on 5 or even 152, it is so worth the detour to stop and grab a sandwich(turkey sandwich toasted)or pick up some sausage. They just recently started making bologna(my boys love it).
        As you can see I am a HUGE fan of Wolfsen's, I am so glad they are back up and running.
