THEY SELL HOME MADE SOUPS AND SOME GREAT DEMI GLAZE. THEIR USED TO BE AN E&M FANCY FOODS IN SKOKIE ON DEMPSTER, BUT IT MOVED TO EVANSTON ON CHURCH STREET AND ..???
Yup. Zier's is my go-to place for the very best meats in the area. You can get a standing prime rib (prime grade) that beats the quality of the best restaurants. Great steaks, etc. They do their own smoking of meats, and they have various cuts of game in the freezer. They get busy right before holidays, when it pays to call ahead.
Zier's is about 3/4 mile north of the CVS pharmacy at Central and Crawford in Evanston.

Zier's and Jerry's are both quite good. I'd add Al's in downtown Wilmette, just east of the train station. They've got a good selection of meats, including dry-aged steaks, as well as one of my favorite delicacies, scrapple.
