R & R QUALITY MEATS & SEAFOOD
It seems so long ago but last weekend we were in Redding California for a barbeque competition. When we are in Redding we like to visit a local favorite R & R Quality Meats & Seafood. We have mentioned R & R before but it is worth revisiting because of their new location. They did not move to far, in fact just next door. R & R's new digs is huge and needs to be. It needs to accommodate the meat hungry populace of Redding. We arrived around three o'clock Saturday afternoon to a packed house. You grab a number and wait your turn. I walked up and down the very long aisle of meat display cases to be a little overwhelmed with the vast selection of quality meats. You name it R & R has got it. They even have a selection of seafood. I would like to mention this section was a little odoriferous.
R & R does such a high volume of business they can offer very reasonable prices. They run weekly specials advertised in the local newspaper. They had USDA Choice New York strip steaks for $9:00/pd. this week. A 32 ounce beauty was put in my shopping cart. R & R has a huge selection of meats but does no in house curing or smoking. They do have a barbeque out front and sell bbq dinners to go on the weekend.
R & R is a great place to get quality meat at a very fair price. This was a price sticker shock for this Mad Meat Genius who is used to paying the 'Bay Area Sin Tax' on his meat purchases. We definately will return the next time we travel up north. I almost forgot to mention they carry "Uncle Lou's Chitlins". Bonus points indeed.
