Best Meat Counter

Hanlen's Meat Shoppe

Driving down always-hustling-and-bustling Manchester Road, it's easy to cruise past Hanlens' storefront window. Meat lovers, however, have a bloodhound's nose for the place, and they flock to the Kirkwood meat counter for slabs of ribs, packages of farm-fresh bacon and the occasional bundle of organ meat. Dennis Hanlen and his crew prepare everything from kebabs to salsiccia in-house, and the store's catering division will keep your guests sated. With a well-stocked selection of gourmet spreads and rubs (as well as Hanlens' own housemade barbecue sauce) and a decent selection of wine and beer, the butcher shop serves as a one-stop shop for an evening of meat, merlot and merriment.
