Equal parts cafe and butcher shop, Belcampo Meat Co. sources organic meat from its own farm to prepare some of the finest burgers in the city. The hamburger patties are juicy and marbled with the right amount of flavorful fat. BMC's cheeseburger is a standout, sandwiched on a toasted brioche bun with a thick slice of Cheddar, caramelized onions, and house sauce. The restaurant is outfitted with old-school blue leather banquettes made from the company's own cow hides.
One of the oldest butcher shops in California (it opened in 1889 as Fairmont Meats), Drewes offers a wide variety of fresh meats, poultry, and fish.
Trying to decide what to pick up for your barbecue this weekend? Look no farther than "The Griller" at Avedano's: a 20lb assortment of dry-aged, bone-in steak, tri tip, flat iron steak, pork ribs, sausage, half-chickens, and ground beef. While you wait for them to gather your supplies, try one of their sandwiches to whet your appetite.
This butchery is a must-stop spot inside the Ferry Building, offering all manner of sustainable meats, as well as sandwiches and other prepared tastiness (think chili dogs and lamb burgers) if you want to eat something more immediately. There's not much room to sit, but get it to go and enjoy your meat along the Embarcadero. They also order a meat of the month delivery service if you're into that sort of thing.
From beer brats to cheddar sausages to cheddar-stuffed burgers and all meats in between, this Dogpatch butcher shop is filled to the brim with terrific cuts of meat.
Do you like meat? Yes? Oh, well then go to 4505. Seriously, they've got meat galore, from hot dogs to sausages, to gourmet to cold cuts, it's ready to eat or take home to cook yourself. Chef Ryan Farr and his wife Cesalee want to change the way you buy, cook, and eat meat. Allied: Now that you’ve tried literally all the meats, roll to the Whole Foods at 2001 Market St and grab some Smith & Forge, the hard cider that's built strong -- built from Apples and built to Refresh.
