Main Line Kosher Meats

I just found out that my butcher has merged (or been bought out by, I'm not sure) Main Line Kosher Meats in Philly. I'm not interested in discussions about the hashgacha, but rather about the meat-- is it good? What's particularly good/bad?

  1. I live in NY now, but grew up in Phila and we always got all our meat from Main Line Kosher. My parents still do, and it was fine. The guys did everything to order for us - we called in our order and either they delivered it or we picked it up later on.

      That was probably under the old owners, two cute little old men. It changed ownership and location some years ago.

      Which butcher closed/was bought out by Main Line? Thank you.

        the old men sold the place 15 years ago to the jewish family but one of them still comes to work there sometime.

    2. I happen to LOVE their roast beef. LOVE it!

      1. hey i go to main line kosher meats. The jewish family still runs the place they just lets some other shop move in cause the owner from the other shop is to old he says. I think its great there is more people to help me out and more people that know what they are talking about. I went to the acme down the street from main line and asked them something about the chicken and they did not know anything. Its great having a place to go where the people that work there know what they are talking about.

        1. Ok, so your butcher didnt merge nor was bought out. The butcher from NE Philly closed down and the owners of Main Line Kosher hired him to just be another butcher there. The same family that bought MLKM 15 years ago still owns it.
          I personally shop there several times a week. I havent been disappointed yet. Everything there is fantastic. I couldnt go through a winter without their soups.
