The best steaks I've ever had were cooked by the great... ME! I've been to my fair share of steak houses, and I've generally had great experiences with them. But when I brought out my cast iron and put the rib eyes from Alexander's, my mouth was overwhelmed with flavor and goodness. The Rib Eyes I bought here were expensive. Very expensive and typically out of my price range. ~$30/lb. I bought a good amount to cook for my family and we all agreed that it was the best steak we've ever had. I didn't change what I normally do, so I have to give my props to the quality of the meat. There was copious marbling, which resulted in a juicy tender steak. The meat was very fresh, which led to honest flavoring and great aromas. Do yourself a favor. In the wise words of Tom Haverford in Parks and Rec, TREAT YO SELF.

WOW! WOW! WOW! Everything was extraordinary. Food, service. I cannot thank you enough as well as Mike, Susie, Jesus and the rest of the crew. All our guests were extremely complimentary. I am thinking of an excuse for another party so we can do it again.

Before we got a Costco membership, we were looking for a nice butcher shop to buy Prime steaks and came across Alexander's. It was a little far to drive for a couple of steaks buttttt.... as much as we love steak, it was totally worth. We went straight to the meat counter towards the back of the store and was helped by an older gentleman immediately. He picked out two very well marbled strip steaks for us and weighed them up. The prices were reasonable, it came out to be roughly $38 for two 14-16oz steaks, and rang us up. They don't let you take the meat to the front of the store to pay. I guess someone's stolen something before?! You can buy the rest of your groceries here too, although the produce wasn't w0w fresh. It looked like any grocery store with slightly inflated prices. We actually turned the two steaks into the hugest burgers (I know, we're idiots). Boyfriend couldn't stop saying they were the best burgers he's ever had, so flavorful with a lot of the juices from the meat running down our hands as we ate. I'd come back a lot more if we didn't get Prime steaks from Costco now, and if it was a little bit closer to home.

Every cut of meat I've purchased from here turned out great when we cooked it. Great quality with people who know their stuff. It's a little pricey so there could be some worry about messing up the great piece of meat you just purchased. I'd probably recommend going for the cheaper cuts from there or even in other stores and make this a special occasion treat due to its price, but it's definitely worth it. Nice staff and are helpful with any advice you need in preparing your meats.

I hate to shop. I have to say that "Tony, the butcher" makes it very a pleasurable experience! Thank you so much for your hard work and your great smile, laughter and superb service! See you soon! Keep up the great work! Thanks again Alexander's Prime Meats and Catering!

Five star for the service I just received from the butcher. First, I was coughing and throats was dry he gave me water which helped. Second, my credit card didn't work due to me purchasing out of the norm, I live in OC and drove up to SG to get the picanha cut. My bill came out to around $56.00, I only had $53.00 in cash, I offered to return the smaller cut of the meat so I can pay for it without owing them money, he told me to just give me $53. This alone will have me driving back up to purchase more meat from them. Plus, they also have Harris Ranch beef. Can't wait to try the other cuts of meat they have there.

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!

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.

High quality food. Love this place. Ask about the dry aged beef. They can get just about anything

Super friendly service with super high quality meat! 

Was making Gordom Ramsay's beef wellington and it came out perfectly. The beef filet just melts in your mouth with each bite. 

Definitely will recommend this place if you're looking for high quality steak/meats.

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.

I'm a rib eye type of person so I asked them I would like a riby eye. Please suggest a good cut to me. I do a rough idea which would be a good steak. He mentioned to me would you like a leaner type or more of a fatty piece? Definitely a nice fat distribution to meat ratio please I asked. He looked through a few pieces and said this is the best they got at the time. I approved and it was wrapped in butcher paper. It felt like a meat butcher place which is rare in the SGV area.

He notice that I was wearing scrubs and asked about what I do and what not. We talked about for 10 minutes about his past experience in the medical field. Pretty amazing, this place you build that connection with that staff that makes you want to come back.

The steak I cooked was perfect. Insanely tender and juicy. I say I got the quality of steak for half the amount at a pricier steak house. I still think about it today.. Maybe its time to make another visit.

Yes I will be coming back!

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.
