Where is a good independent meat market in Dallas?

I live in the Lake Highlands area, and ever since moving to Dallas recently have been on the lookout for a good family meat market. Central Market has good meat, but oh my! The prices are out of this world!

        Yep. Rudolph's is an excellent choice. Also Kuby's in Snider Plaze in Highland Park.

          I generally get my meat from Sam's or Costco as I think you get the best bang for the buck. I do make the trek to Rudolphs every so often to pick up some links of their polish sausage. Some of the best I've ever had.

        If you're going to Plano to try Hirch's (which I also recommed), try Ye Olde Butcher Shoppe, it's on 15th, East of 75 about five blocks. I like Sprouts as well, the selection can be limited but I've liked just about everything I've had there.

      2. Is Halal or Kosher of concern?

        1. I second the recommendation of Rudophs. I would also add Koster's to the list, they are located in the Farmer's Market near the mexican food restaurant just north of the sheds.

          There were 4 or 5 "meat" vendors at the market last weekend as well.

            Kubys for just about any cut of meat. Jimmy's is also a good spot especially for their Italian sausage.

          2. I have to third fourth or fifth rudolphs. They are really authentic too, it is an experience with their history in deep ellum.
