Johnny G’s Butcher Block has been an Austin tradition since 1980. Our Texas born and raised family has owned it since 2000.
Our meat market offers a retail counter, wholesale (restaurant/catering) business and wild game processing services. Because of this we try our best to meet each of these needs.
We are limited to what we can store for individuals and what we can fit in our smokehouse. Because we are a wholesale and retail haccp plant we need to follow certain procedures that others may not be required to. We have an inspector here Monday through Friday. In regard to wildgame, we have a minimum order because we do not mix your animal with others. We are required to have tags when bone in. Game wardens come in and check.
We offer briskets, rib-eyes, t-bones, fajitas, hamburgers for the grill, tri-tip, flat iron, fresh (never frozen) natural whole chickens (fresh each Friday and kept on ice), local eggs, whole pigs (security deposit required) or cabrito/(young goat). Our butchers cut the counter each day and to your liking.
Our grocery store can help you complete the meal. Come on in and check out our Hot Sauces, Salsas and Rubs made in Texas.
