Shalhoob Meat Company 220 Gray Ave., 963-7733
“Nice,” said L.J. Shalhoob, co-manager and grandson of the founder of the meat business begun back in the 1970s, which now seems like it’s always been here. “That’s part of our secret; we totally take care of the people in our backyard,” he said, pointing out Shalhoob’s involvement in events like high school football snacks-that’s them on Friday night Don home games. “I like the fact that people can come in here and get just one steak from a million-dollar business, and we deliver free for $50 orders, which doesn’t make us any money. But I’m pretty sure the quality doesn’t hurt us either. We’re totally glad we won,” Shalhoob said.
