CHEAP meat in Long Beach [surrounding]

Hello everyone...I recently moved from NYC to Long Beach and am having trouble finding cheap meat in my new city. Specifically I'm looking for chicken legs, thighs, backs, pork necks and assorted "weird" animal parts [hearts, liver, lungs, kidneys....]
My dog eats RAW and I always found plenty of these cheap meats for him at markets near my old apartment in Queens. 39-59ยข a pound...I haven't found anywhere in LB that cheap. I'm hoping the saavy people of chowhound can give me some options...
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I don't mind a little bit of a drive into the surrounding areas if the market is good.
Thank you in advance!

  1. Gonzalez Northgate Market is your best bet for Cheap Meat that is decent. There are some smallish Asian Markets on Anaheim, but their meat always looks a bit shaked. Gonzalez is your best bet...

    It's on Pacific a bit above PCH...


    1. I would try Food 4 Less. Their meat (especially chicken) is usually very cheap and I've seen all of the "weird" stuff there too.

      1. there are several mexican/latin markets in LB. One on Cherry and 10th and on Long Beach Blvd. there are a few, Superior and I can't think of the name of the other big one.
