As the coronavirus pandemic has forced restaurant shutdowns across Dallas, it has also caused many to cook at home more even as restaurants are open at 50 and soon 75 percent come this Friday. Luckily, local Dallas butchers have adapted to various changes—shocks in the meat supply chain, for one—and kept offering as many types of meat as possible. Even though they cannot always guarantee certain meats will be in stock, these shops continue offering a wide selection with curbside, delivery, and other pickup options. For an extra-special Father’s Day, order grill boxes now.
They remain open seven days a week, offering curbside pickup, drive-through, and delivery options. They source from family farms, which allows them to continue offering fresh meats. Call to order burgers, hot dogs, brats, or one of their famous cheesesteak sandwiches. 20 S Harwood St, 214-655-6328; Downtown
Bone-In Butcher Shop
John Sayklay and his son, Jake, are delivering custom-cut meat through their newly launched, web-based Bone-In Butcher Shop. They source beef primarily out of Texas, the bulk of which is corn-fed, corn-finished, and wet-aged 28 days. But you can also spring for wagyu or grass-fed and grass-finished beef, along with lamb, pork, and chicken, in a panoply of options that range from burger patties to combo boxes ($200–$876) with impressive tomahawk steaks.
