Without butchers, the only way to get a tender cut of meat would be painstakingly carving a steak into the shape of a heart. Enjoy simpler cuts with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of meats from the butcher and deli at Prisco's Fine Foods in Aurora.

Prisco's Fine Foods
When Prisco's Fine Foods opened in 1926, there were no shopping carts rattling down its aisles; the store was housed in the first floor of Tony and Mary Prisco's home, where they won over customers with humor and personal attention while peddling produce. Today, the store has moved into a modern location, but continues to specialize in Italian cuisine and fresh produce. An array of olive oils, herbs, and tomato products is available from both domestic and overseas sources. The store's staff also makes pastas, sauces, and pizzas in-house, providing materials for easily assembled family dinners or at-home Double Dare competitions. Butchers prepare fresh meat that is cut or ground on the premises and never cryogenically preserved. They expertly slice up Aurora Angus beef, Seaboard all natural pork, and Amish chicken, as well as over 30 kinds of housemade sausage, including italian sausage and bratwurst.
