My experience is outdated, yet nonetheless impressive. While away from New Orleans during the Katrina scare, my family and I resided in Lawerenceville, GA. As we traveled to and fro the agencies set up for evacuee assistance, we always passed the Great Western Meats store. One day the ladies in my family stopped in to take a look...and oh boy did we act like children in candyland. As it was in New Orleans (pre-Katrina), it's not common to find a meat market in GA, so running up on Great Western Meats was a wonderful find for us Southern cooking folks. Just today as I was suggesting a dinner menu to one of my sisters, who now permanently resides in Lawrenceville with her family, she asked if I remembered the name and location of the meat market we visited three years ago. I never forgot the name, Great Western Meats; and the location came clear after doing an online search. Thanks Great Western Meats for listing your business, and much more for the feelings of home when we needed it most. We enjoyed every kind of meat from cuts of beef to fresh cut oxtail...and everything in between needed to make a New Orleans style dinner in a home away from home.

I'm not sure what the previous reviewer experienced but I've been to Great Western Meats many times and have always been treated very well. They have by far the best meat in town and are reasonably priced. Try a steak from them and the same cut from any of the local supermarkets and you'll be amazed at the difference in quality. They also have excellent pork and chicken.

I waited in line and placed an order. The guy looked and me and told me that it would take a while. I said that would be fine. He proceeded to not work on my order. I was confused but continued to wait. Other customers one by one came in and he attended to them. I waited while he held long conversations about her divorce and move to FL. His child support and not having visitation with his son. He took another customer after her. After about 15 minutes on this he looked at me and said yours will take a while. I asked him what that meant. He said a while. I asked him what exactly that meant. He said another 30 minutes. I left. I was shocked and confused so I returned to get clarification. He said that he was in the one in charge and that it would take that long to get my order together because the meat was not prepacked. The only problem with that explanation is that none of there meat is prepacked and comes out of the display! The way that I was treated was not only rude but illegal!

I always get my steaks here as the quality seems to be better. They also have a good variety of your typical "butcher" cuts that Wal Mart and the chain grocery stores don't seem to have. Their prices are also great, sometimes a lot better than what you find in regular stores.

You never know what you are going to find here, frog legs? You bet! Their meat cuts are fresh and of great quality. If you want a huge T-bone better than what the grocery stores can get you, come here, they are the best.
