All I want say is that you guys are doing a great job and I hope you guys stick around for another 50 years
By Adam Smith
One of my favorite places to shop - I go at least once a week if I can for a steak (which y'all cut fresh for me if I want a real big one). My new favorite thing there is those bacon-wrapped scallops, but everything is great.
By Roberta Martin, Pearadise Catering
As a caterer and regular customer, B&E Meats in Des Moines and in Burien offers the finest quality meat and seafood for all of my business and personal cooking needs. 50 years of success is due to the product quality and also to the impeccable service by everyone that works there. It is always service with a smile at B&E Meats.

I use to shop in the Burien store when I lived there. Then I moved out in the sticks and when I get back this way or am hungry for the wonderful tri-tip I always think of B&E because no one has that good of meat anywhere I have gone. This weekend I am coming in to pick up two tri-tips to cook for my family. Love all the meat and the people that serve you.

By Brett Hancock
Lowest prices anywhere yet the highest quality anywhere. Impossible to beat that combination. Always friendly and attentive and where else can you get more then 3 types of Bacon!
By Charlotte Tanner
We live in Granite Falls so any time we go south we head for B & E meats. The jerky is the best and the kalbi ribs and chicken are to die for. There is no place around Granite Falls that even comes close to the quality of the meats and service. It is well worth the drive.

Did I hear someone say meat candy??? I love me some meat candy! Have you been in search for the world's best bacon? Well, I can tell you...I found it!! It would be a sad day if pigs disappeared...yes, I would cry uncontrollably to say the least. Ok, on to the review and away from my obsession. This is a true meat/seafood market that takes pride in the products that they make and sell. I love non-commercialized businesses that take us back to our roots. My great-grandfather started one of the early meat markets in Tacoma and this place reminds me of his old market. We have tried some of the pre-marinated meats that were quite good. The seafood selection is decent, fresh and priced fair. The landjaggers are a special treat too! It is like a pepperoni stick on steroids...but much tastier! Back to the bacon..... It is fantabulous!! They smoke their own bacon and offer different cuts. We are in love with the loin style cuts. It is the leanest I have ever seen....almost to the point of no fat. Maybe that is not your idea of bacon, but I figure it must be better for.you without all the fat. The location is great. We take about a 20 minute boat ride from Point Defiance and walk about 1/2 mile up the road to the meat market and stock up. They will even pack it in ice and a foam cooler for you! The staff has always been very friendly and helpful and they definitely know there stuff. I think I will go get some meat candy now!!

Des Moines, WA 4 star rating 2/22/2009 Love this place! Great selection of meats, but of course it is a Meat shop. What really makes this place stand out are the people. Very friendly and willing to help. I just wish they would stay open later, by the time that I get home from work, they are closed. Also like the new sign.

These folks, B & E, have a meat shop in Burien, and both offer choice cuts and some of the The Best Smoked Salmon in The World. I much prefer the Des Moines location -- it's cleaner, more friendly feeling, better lighting, and seems like a spot-on butcher shop from like, your dad's childhood. Back to the smoked salmon. They offer something called 'award winning' smoked salmon, something called 'salmon candy', and some smoked sockeye. Oddly enough, the cheapest of these, the smoked sockeye, is my fav. It's top-notch moist, not overbearingly smokey, just a touch sweet, and really what smoked salmon oughtta be. They do a couple options of jerky --- buffalo, turkey, beef. All are really good. All fresh and previously frozen fish and meats are top quality -- this is a very clean, very respectable meat butcher; these dudes know what they're doing, whom they're odering from, and they care about what you're having for dinner.

Excellent prices, extremely helpful staff and good quality! Kalbi Chicken and Tri Tip beef is the best. Great for BBQ.

I have lived in Des Moines for about 10 years and have never been disappointed by B&E. And I am often surprised. First, They don't just sell meat, but terrific seafood as well. They almost always have 2 or more Salmon fillets on hand. Their smoked salmon is the best I've ever had. They have an excellent selection of pre-mariniated meats, all of which are tasty. A huge selection of steaks, always well trimmed and flavorful. Their smoked chicken is to die for. They have a big selection of saugaes, smoked, cooked and freash. I've never had a bad one and I think I have tried them all. Lastly, they have the most outstanding jerkey I've ever had. It's made on the premises, well smoked and not overly salty. My boys love it. They have three flavors of beef and carry buffalo (Bison) and turkey jerkey too. They have a lot of younger guys working there, but the all know their meat and have great customer service skills. I've never met anyone who is rude. Their prices are competitive with other upscale places like Larry's or Metropolitian Market. Safeway and Fred Meyer's may be cheaper, but the difference is worth it for the quality. You cannot lose here. Enjoy.
