Best Bet for Tallahassee Butcher?

trptcase Dec 1, 2007 10:35 AM

I'm having a dinner party in three weeks for I'm in need of 16 cuts of filet mignon. Is my best bet Publix or Fresh Market? Or is there a local gem that I am missing? Tallahassee seems to be lacking in this area, but perhaps I am mistaken. Thanks!

    Yes, Tallahassee is lacking a good butcher. I've been to a couple of paties where the meat was purchased from a butcher on 90 east as you go into Monticello. It might be worth a try.

      I've actually had pretty good luck at Star's on Tharpe.

      I've been meaning to try the place in Monticello. I go by there a couple of times a week. I'll try to stop in there next weekend. A friend gave me some bacon from there and it was great.

      Thank you - we've got some friends in Monticello who just told me about that place. I will check it out.
