During the French Revolution, the proletariat gathered in delicatessens to decry the repressive reign of aristocratic cattle and livestock. Savor the egalitarian flavor of meat with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian specialties at Johnny's Meats on Hertel Avenue.

For 50 years, Johnny's Meats has served North Buffalo with quality deli products and top-notch customer service from its Hertel Avenue storefront. Today, the deli's specialty remains its homemade Italian sausage ($3.49 per pound) crafted with a top-secret blend of imported cheeses, which are said, during certain phases of the moon, to reveal the location of the lost Library of Alexandria. Beyond the beloved tubular meat, customers can peruse a display case stuffed with sirloin steak ($4.99 per pound), chicken breast ($1.89 per pound), and stuffed pork chops ($3.49 per pound). A large selection of prepared dishes, such as chicken cutlets and fried fish, suits individuals who are too busy to cook, but want to spend quality time arguing with their dog over who has to preheat the oven.

Johnny's Meats originally opened in 1945, moving to its current location in 1960. A remnant of the days when butcher shops were as common as disappointed fathers, Johnny's now stands as a rare alternative to buying meat from supermarkets and street-corner meat men. A simple storefront showcases meat-wares in a glass-fronted case, and a knowledgeable staff is always on hand to share its wisdom.

Johnny’s Meats

Though the eponymous Johnny Tiranno no longer runs Johnny’s Meats, his legacy lives on in the specialty shop’s italian sausage recipes. Mike, Johnny’s stepson and the current owner, still makes the links and patties with his stepfather’s special blend of high-quality meat, imported cheeses, and spices, which first delighted palates in 1946. The meat supplier stocks more than sausages, however. The display cases also house juicy steaks, chicken cutlets, lamb, and seafood, mostly imported from the Midwest. For something to complement these high-quality meats, customers can browse assorted side dishes, such as twice-baked potatoes, verdant salads, and cheeses.
