The expert protein wranglers at Carroll's Meats delight patrons with lovingly sliced deli meats and a history that stretches back nearly a century. This Groupon can be redeemed at the deli counter for half a dozen delectable cold cuts, including blackened tri-tip beef, barbecue roast beef, lemon-garlic turkey, peppered turkey, roast turkey, or sausages, allowing patrons to stock up on materials for making sandwiches at home or sewing duvet covers out of meat slices (prices vary by availability and season).
A liquor store on a quiet street corner, New Daly City Market might be easy to pass by were it not for the enticing aromas of roasting beef and dutch crunch rolls toasting that waft out from within. Inside, just past the bottles of spirits, wine, and beer is the source of the scents: a small sandwich counter stocked with crisp vegetables, deli meats, and gourmet cheeses. There, skilled sandwich makers bustle about behind the counter, spreading garlic sauce onto crunchy loaves before layering on the likes of turkey and pepper jack cheese. Once sandwiches are wrapped in crisp white paper, customers take them out to the patio chairs on the front walk to dine alfresco or share by lobbing them newspaper-delivery-style at a friend’s front door.
Since 1955, the family behind Save More Meat Market has been filling their display cases with quality cuts of USDA Choice meat, now sourced from the local Harris Ranch. They stock everything from meatloaf to short ribs and shrimp meat, all of which stand to be transformed into hearty dinners in the comforts of home. Handy animal diagrams hang behind the counter, informing patrons where certain cuts of meat are found on the animal, such as chuck beef—located near the cow's neck—and rib meat—located on the cow's hind legs.
