50 reviews for Alexander's Prime Meats and Catering
My new go to butcher. BBQ for my team at work, pre ordered beef ribs added pork butt and chicken. Biggest beef ribs I'v ever seen. Great selection of seafood too, helpful staff. Highly recommend.
Alexander's is A+ when it comes to the best meat and seafood for sure.
My 5 stars however are for the exemplary customer service I received from an employee by the name of LUIS (I hope I'm spelling it correctly). He assisted me 3 (yes that's how good this place is) days in a row. I had an issue with a purchase from my second visit and he seamlessly handled my transaction with a smile and perfect customer service. Thanks Luis for your great attitude!
Thank you, Tony and Butch, for your professionalism and warm sense of humor. The entire staff comprise of expert knowledge and pride of what they present and serve. Keep up the excellent customer service.
Friendly staff and a good selection makes this place a must for your ingredients or your lunch/dinner grabs!
Just the best meat. Period! They know their stuff! They are friendly. They have great seafood. They have Shelton poultry. ...Should I keep going? Just try them, you will quickly become a fan.
It was a hit and miss from calling in to place a order to picking up the bone-in "prime" grade rib roast.
I needed a roast for friends-giving and ordered a 3 rib roast to season and cook for friends-giving and I called Alexander meats. The gentleman picking up was kind of rude as it was my first time ordering the roast and he was being impatient with just one or two questions i had. Any one after him was pleasant except one could not understand English?!?
I ordered 3 rib bone in prime rib roast from the loin end to be trimmed of excess fat and bone removed but tied back on for easy cutting. I got back a nice rib done the way i asked except it was covered in fat and was from the middle ribs instead of the loin end. It was also not trimmed correctly at all.
Other then that the quality was good. I still docked a star for not getting what i asked.
These guys have great quality meats. I've been here twice now and have tried the NY and the ribeye. My favorite is the ribeye, but my SO really enjoyed the NY. Steaks all came out tender and juicy. Glad there is a family run business like this. Will be back for more!
I stopped ordering steak from restaurants. Why? Because of places like Alexander's. The quality of meat you can get here is bar none. I can do a far more better job grilling the steak than any restaurant. I don't have to deal with the pressure of ordering expensive wine or corkage fees. I've gotten prime rib eye, tenderloin cap, new york steak, catered for a party of 40, and don't forget their weekend tri tip sandwich special for just $6.99! You can't beat it. Highly recommend.
Super friendly service with super high quality meat!
I heard about this place way back, but never had a chance to go. Then there was this one day where it HAD to be a steak typa night. Decided to finally drop by and check out their meat selection.
Alexander's undoubtedly carries the best steaks out of any place I've tried. I've purchased steaks from many different butchers throughout Los Angeles and Orange counties and though there are some really good steaks out there, Alexander's still reigns supreme. I've even done side-by-side tastings with steaks of the same cut from other places and the steaks from Alexander's always end up being everyone's favorite.
To top it all off, the people who work there are great. I don't go often enough to have established any sort of relationship with any of them, but they treat me and everyone else the same every time I go. They're always helpful and very friendly. I can't say enough great things about this place and can't wait until I go back to pick up my next piece of prime rib eye steak!
Lived in San Gabriel for 5 years and down the street was Howies. You will always receive a nice warm welcoming and amazing service. Got all our meat and chicken here and always got compliments when we hosted parties about our food.
This place is great!! This is my favorite place to buy cuts of meat and seafood in the area. The guys behind the counter are also great.. old school butchers who know their meat and how to cook it. I usually get the Harris Ranch filet mignons.. they are excellent! They also have good roasts, fresh cut bacon and a good selection of seafood. I have also called ahead and ordered peeled shrimp. All of the meat looks fresh and clean there.. it is a nice treat to visit this great meat market compared to other local super markets. You wont be disappointed!
Alexander's provided amazing food and service for an event of 100 guests. The setup and presentation was very elegant. We received many complements from guests. Denise, Mike, and their staff were absolutely wonderful.
