We’ve had filets at Frankie’s, Ruth’s Chris, Chicago Chop House, Morton’s, Vegas and throughout Europe. None better than those we had tonight from Yard Bull! And that’s without even mentioning the scallops.

My family has always been picky about meat and for years we tried looking for the right place to get it from. We tried several local farms but it was never to our satisfaction.We started buying our meat at yard bull meats a few months ago and we are so happy that we go nowhere else.The eggs are cheaper than the “fancy ones” at supermarkets and they are wayyyy better. No foul smells or taste.You can also do special orders and they will do the best to accommodate your needs.Some of our favorite items are Italian Sausages, Aged Ribeye and Filet, Pork shoulder (I’ve made the best pulled pork for NY!), black mussels, trout, etc… Haha We pretty much tried everything and so far there’s nothing we didn’t like!The staff is always super friendly and so is the owner. He helped me carry my order to the car today without me even asking and that is something that I really appreciated. Knowledgeable people but yet down to earth. Always a smile and a greeting when you walk in.I highly recommend this place to anyone that is looking for good quality.

The food is fantastic. Though when you speak to the manager of the store ( maybe he is the owner IDK ) he will speak down to you if he thinks you are not upper middle-class. When asking about ground beef be sure and articulate yourself correctly using proper English and do not call it the southern "hamburger / ground hamburger". He will quickly correct you to make sure you know his superior intellect. If you are any type of prepper or a country person who knows how to jar things like eggs they do NOT have unwashed eggs. When speaking with the gentleman about said eggs, when I inquired about if he could order some I was quickly told to seek eggs from one of the "many farms with fresh egg signs". When I stated I wanted to give him my business he scoffed and stated that he does just fine without it. While I was there I witnessed a man and his children come in for a large order. The manager waited until the man got there to inform him that he was not able to complete the order due to machine problems. He apparently did not even give this what appeared to be well off man with a large order a courtesy call so he would not show up at the store.The quality of the meat is great. We tried the steak and ribs, both of which was well worth the money! The quality of the service however is not. I do not recommend coming here due to the fact of how you are spoken to by the gentleman. I have given three stars because it would not be fair to give one or two stars based on the service alone. All in all I just wouldn't give my business to someone who does not seem to care about it.

My family and guests raved about the NY strip steaks we bought from here - some said the best they ever had. The salmon was also amazing. We will go back! Staff was super helpful and friendly.

Great selection of meats. Everything is prepped and made in house. I got a little sample of each of the meats and sausage they make for a lunch snack it was delicious! Can't wait for them to start up their classes in the new year.

Went today to check it out. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I bought some bourbon maple bacon and some sausages. I had no idea that bacon could taste that good the sausages were incredible. I can’t wait to try more. Roanoke is lucky to have you guys.

We visited for the first time this morning. Elliot and Jordan were so friendly and welcoming. We bought two gorgeous filets for dinner. They were absolutely delicious. We’re so excited to have such a great shop within walking distance of our house. Looking forward to trying some of their other meats and seafood. Highly recommend.

I got 1 1/2 pound of ground beef and made cheese burgers for my family. My sons who eat nothing ate it ALL. Loved it and would recommend for a cookout! :)

Beautiful shop. Clean, friendly, and knowledgeable. You can tell a lot of thought and heart went into it.
