      I got one of the best steaks of my life at Ziers: dry-aged bone-in ribeye. Incredible.

        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.

          Jerry's is what used to be E&M on Dempster. (Jerry was one of the butchers at E&M(. It's my go-to place. Great meat and great service.

            I'll second Jerry's. Great quality and Jerry will really take care of you. Probably the best skirt steaks you'll find anywhere. For a real treat try the skirt steak burgers when they offer them. You'll find them in the freezer case.

          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.
