A good butcher is like an artist; both look great in aprons, both understand the importance of shape, color, and texture, and both appreciate the transient beauty of a brisket. Support fine art in its meatiest form with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of all-natural meats and more at Herb's Quality Meats, at its new Broomfield location.
Since the bicentennial, Herb's Quality Meats has stocked its cases with a meaty mélange of all-natural beef, poultry, pork, lamb, and wild game. All of Herb's choice chops come free of steroids, antibiotics, hormones, and marshmallow fluff, from the beefy borders of their New York strip steaks ($16.99 per pound) and T-bones ($13.99 per pound) to the petite proteinous perimeters of their seasonal sirloin ($7.99 per pound) and chicken ($6.99 per pound) kabobs. The delicatessen also rounds up a tempting team of cold cuts, cheeses, and salads, the star forward being Herb's own homemade chicken salad ($6.99 per pound), while the on-site smokehouse and meat grinder ensures a steady stream of never-stale sausages.
Aside from the fresh feastables, Herb's also offers an array of fresh-frozen, heat and serve products such as soups, stews, and sauces, most house-made, including the beef, turkey, and chicken pot pies ($4.49). The house-specialty seasoning ($9.99) is a delightful blend of eight spices, promising to make any protein pop, while ready to bake fruit pies await to entertain unexpected guests, or fend off unexpected clown assassins. Herb's Quality Meats is open seven days a week until 6 p.m.
