Granzin's Meat Market
I know it's not local, but it's not a big-box store, either.
With the holidays coming up, Granzin's Market is high on my list of stops. If there is someplace closer that is as good, please post away. Until then, It's Granzin's for me.
I recommend anyone who has not been, go check it out. I remember, when I was a starving college student, the best gift I ever got was a fully-stocked refrigerator. So, all you like-minded young-uns, grab mom and dad and take a drive down to New Braunfels and get them to hook you up.
I'll probably be loading up on about $300 worth of awesome steaks to fill my freezer today. Plus some of their bacon, fajitas, franks, ribs...
Mmmmm. Meat is good.
What little room is left is reserved for a stack of pies from Wimberley Pie Company.
I can feel myself getting fat just thinking about it.
