The Meat House...Summit

A franchise known as "The Meat House" has opened in Summit...they are all over the country but I've never been. Has anyone else? I'm skeptical, and the name is terrible. Franchise butcher shop.

  1. I visited on their opening day and was very impressed. The staff was very knowledgeable about their products, and they were all very friendly and enthusiastic about the store. We talked a bit with one of the butchers and despite his youth, we (dad and me) both agreed that he seemed to know his stuff. He said if we ever need a roast or anything else specially cut, he would be happy to do whatever we needed, and even went so far as to say, if we weren't 100% happy he'd cut it again. The prices aren't cheap, but they are not out of line for the area, and were actually a bit lower than I expected. They gave us both a free sample of their marinated steak tips (raw) to take home and grill. Based on those steak tips alone, I will definitely be going back.

    1. I also went on opening day. Again the staff was very friendly and Knowledgable. Theres not a lot of butchers around anymore so this will be nice to grab a cut of meat on the way home in the summer for some grilling or smoking.
