Restaurant Summary by Allan Borgen:

The Corner Butcher Shop in La Verne is a unique and exciting store that offers a array of beef, pork, poultry, fish, seafood and exotic meats as well as a full deli counter, a nice selection of California wines and some delicious hot entrees and sandwiches that you can enjoy in their store.

All of the fresh meats are either Prime or 8% Upper Choice graded beef. In other words, you can’t get any better meat than what they sell here. Like all good butcher shops, all of the meats are cut on the premises and if you enjoy homemade sausages, you must try one or more of their 21 sausages including Bratwurst with Cheese, Chicken Apple, Smoked Andouille, Linguisa, Swedish, all kinds of Italian sausages and for those who like English sausages, they offer a great peppery Cumberland sausage. Master Sausage Maker Eric Murray has been making sausages for over 43 years and his experience really shows in all of the impressive 1/3 lb. sausages.

In a nearby freezer case, you can also take home a selection of exotic meats like buffalo, ostrich, elk, venison, kangaroo, rabbit, veal, goose, Kobe beef and others, each ready to be cooked and enjoyed at your home.

As good as the meats, pork, fish, seafood and sausages are, the sandwiches are even better. Their sausages, chili and hot dogs are made from end cuts of their meats (cuts that are too small to make steaks from) and little or no fillers are used. You can dine in their store sitting on two long tables and a counter or take the food out. All of their sandwiches are priced at $7.65 and include a freshly made side salad or a bag of chips. I would definitely go for the sides like their delicious North Carolina Cole slaw made with Catalina dressing, their feta cheese and olive salad, a pasta salad with cube of cold cuts, a wonderful smoked chicken salad and a hearty potato salad.

I started my order out with the homemade Hot Dog Sandwich, their popular Tri Tip Sandwich, and their Pastrami Sandwich. When I say Hot Dog, I don’t meat those hot dogs everyone else sells. I’m talking about a fantastic hot dog made with quality cuts of perfectly seasoned dense ground beef and pork. The “dog” was served on a freshly baked bun and the delicious dense textured hot dog and bun with mustard was by far the best hot dog I have eaten. On certain Fridays, you can get their hot dogs for only $1.00. Don’t forget to ask them when they will be offering them at that price when you drop in. I love these doggies! The Tri Tip Sandwich featured of a nice portion of sliced tri tip that was

first marinated and then seasoned and grilled served on your choice of squaw, wheat, rye, sourdough or a wheat or French roll. In addition to the delicious tender tri tip, lettuce, tomato and a tangy sweet BBQ sauce are added to the sandwich.  Like almost everything else they make, their pastrami is made on the premises and is lean, has lots of flavor and is juicy and tender. Pickles and mustard is served with the pastrami on your choice of breads or rolls.

My second flight of dishes included the BBQ Brisket Sandwich, Pulled Pork and a customer inspired Steak & Cheese Panini sandwich. The Brisket was slowly cooked and smoked and was absolutely perfect in every sense. It was tasty, juicy and oh so good. The addition of their BBQ sauce really made for one fine sandwich. Speaking of fine, their #1 selling sandwich is the Pulled Pork and after tasting it, I see why. The pork was shredded, extremely tender and mixed with their BBQ sauce. This was definitely one of the better pulled pork sandwiches I have had. My final sandwich, the Steak & Cheese Panini, was the best of the best! This spectacular sandwich, which was requested by a customer, consists of two pieces of sourdough bread filled with a large 10 oz or so sirloin steak, Swiss cheese, grilled bell peppers & onions and a zesty horseradish sauce. It was then pressed and the results were a sandwich made in culinary heaven. I highly recommend this sandwich.

In closing, whether you dine in, take out, cook at home or want some truly incredible catered sandwiches, deli trays & hot entrees for your next party or office function, Chef Ricky Brewer and owners John & Will Fuelling will be glad to make your dining and shopping experience a memorable one.

9 thoughts on “Corner Butcher Shop

  1. The Corner Butcher Shop (and Darnell’s BBQ) is the kind of meat market that I grew up with in Oregon. They sell wonderful cuts of meat for you to cook at home, or they will cook it for you there on the spot or hook you up with some of their other wonderful items (ours had a great sandwich shop). TCBS has some of the BEST sausages I’ve ever put in my mouth. My favorites would have to be the hot dogs (basically, a steak dog), the Guinness Apple sausage, and the Beer Cheese Jalapeno bratwurst (for those who like a nice kick to their sausage). They also have a great ribs, fabulous brisket, and a very interesting pastrami (not very peppery, almost more like a corned beef). Just remember to come early as they run out of their items for Darnell’s BBQ many nights.

  2. I tried the Corner Butcher Shop for the first time, yesterday.

    I had the Tri-Tip sandwich for lunch and it was outstanding. Served on a great roll with plenty of meat. I washed it down with a Route 66 root beer, which was also very good. The shop offers a great selection of bottled sodas to go with your meal.

    The Butcher Shop has a wide and varied selection of meats, sausages, seafood and much more. I am looking forward to cooking and trying the marinated Tri-Tip roast I purchased.

    The service here is also wonderful. The staff had great interactions with the customers who were already eating when I arrived, and with those that came during my time in the shop. The staff and customers were all on a first name basis, which shows what a loyal cliental they have.

    Overall, I had a great experience and if you have the chance to try them out you should do so.

  3. I visited The Corner Butcher Shop in La Verne today armed with my Feed Me 411 Gift Certificate. I bought 4 different kinds of sausage and a rack of BBQ Baby Back Ribs. The ribs were mouthwatering & delicious. Most importantly, there was a very distinct BBQ smell & flavor in the meat; it was genuine BBQ, not grilled. I grilled the sausage and was very pleased with the results. The sausages were moist & very flavorful, with just the right amount of spice. The prices for everything were very reasonable & I look forward to going back soon.

  4. I absolutely love their Smokey pork ribs and the the smoked chicken salad made with bacon is to die for! You don’t know what you’re missing folks

  5. I lived in Azusa for 7 years. I live in LaGrange, GA now so I can’t just “stop by.” If I find myself back in the area, based on the reviews, I will definitely stop for lunch.

  6. Great spot for lunch or dinner. Good specials on fridays but do come early to get a seat. Come by every time I am in town, one of my favorite lunch spots. Take home some of the great meats to cook at home or have them grill it for you there, never disappointed. Staff in super nice and go out of their way to please.

  7. My wifeand I had lunch here and was very happy with our meals. I had the pulled pork with bbq chicken salad. My wife had Tri-Tip with beans. All was very good and would go back again.

  8. I received my $10 gift certificate to Corner Butcher Shop, they have extensive array of meats as well as sauces, it was fun browsing. I had not been to the Corner Butcher Shop before and they are 5 min from me. I am so pleased to Allen Borgen and Let’s dine out for this wonderful gift. If I have one criticism is that I did not feel a lot of friendly vibes. Maybe it was just the time of day we arrived, but I would definitely go back.

  9. Great food and great customer service. I had the Pastrami on marbled rye and it was excellent. I chose a Route 66 root beer to drink from the large selection of bottled soda that are available.
