Butcher Boy Meats North Andover, MA
You're doing the cooking but when you are in need of restaurant quality beef and you live within ice cooler distance of North Andover, MA, make the trip. This icon lies at the junction of Rte.'s 125 and 133 and has grown over the years to the size of a small supermarket. Upon entering, you stare an "acre of beef" in the face. Tremendous porterhouses, bone-in sirloin, club sirloin, New York sirloin, ribeyes and filets. They also grind fresh "kima", (triple ground top round prepared to be eaten raw in an Armenian dish)that I use to make steak tartare for lunch all the time. The butchers where lab coats and shirt and tie, as they are all top notch professionals. They also have select pork cuts, steakhouse fresh calves liver and really, really good house made Italian sausages. Full liquor license, gourmet and regular groceries, and their own tabbouleh and baked beans stand out in an excellent prepared foods section. They also stock premium chunk hardwood charcoal so you can cook your steaks right!
