Recommendation for a first-time customer

“The two things that everyone really likes, one, would be our bacon. Once people try that, it’s pretty much over for them, that’s it. And then the ground beef, those are probably the two once people try those they kind of stick with them.”

Our customers say it best...

“Meats by John and Wayne is hands down the best butcher shop in Fargo-Moorhead. Fantastic service and great products at responsible prices.”

“If you are a vegetarian stay away! This is a meat lover's old fashion meat shop minus the sawdust on the floor.

Stop for one thing and walk out with a half a cow thats how it works there. This is one serious meat shop so give it a try.”
