Posts from past two years come up with the answer that a) there's not much, if any, b) only Hispanic markets, and/or c) this one:


Are there any other butchers south of Tustin and outside of a high end supermarket?

Any reviews of El Toro Meats?

    Are you looking for something in particular that the high end supermarket butchers don't have? I have friends down that way that swear by the meat department at:

    Pacific Ranch Markets
    7540 E Chapman Ave
    Orange, CA 92869
    Phone: (714) 639-9792

    One other thought:

    Beef Palace Butcher Shop
    5895 Warner Ave
    Huntington Beach, CA 92649
    (714) 846-0044

      What are you looking for, meat wise?

      El Toro Gourmet Meat is awesome. Great premarinated carne asada, among other things.

      You might check out Ranch House Meats, which is a small independent butcher shop / gourmet grocer. It's behind the Shell station on RSM Parkway, next to the toll road.
