"Grey Lynn Butchers are my favourite butchers. It is a great family business and their
meat is superb". Grant Allen - chef.


"I feel so lucky to have a butcher in my neighbourhood who will get me fresh meat from out the back like butchers used to, make real good sausages and their proscuitto and smoked chicken is the best and cheapest in town. I buy all my meat from Lucia and Eddie and if they don't have it out the back they'll always order it in for me."
Wendyl Nissen - food author and journalist.

CUSTOMER PRAISE
  • Special Smoky Bacon [+]
    "We would like to congratulate you on the many selective cuts of meat you have, especially your special smoked bacon. May I say also, having you allow us to buy in bulk is very convenient. Rating 1-10, you come 11. Your displays are great. It is always a pleasure shopping in your establishment. Very happy customers,
    The Souter family".
  • Best Butcher [+]
    "These guys really are the best in central Auckland. Great prices, awesome selection. If they don't have something you want out the front, just ask and they'll cut you it up out the back. This is the spot if you're into weird cuts like beef cheeks, pork hocks, all that shiz. The pork is freerange too, but actually at reasonable prices.

  • My Favourite & My Local [+]
    "This is my local. I don't buy meat from the supermarkets anymore. Lucia is super friendly and happy to help you with anything, if you keep coming back, these guys will remember your name and what type of meats you like or what you havn't tried yet. It's a real old school butcher. Best butcher in Auckland and without the snobbery. The sausages are great but my fave is the bacon. I have never had some delicious bacon. I love the selection there to, there's always something interesting and different on display. Clean tidy shop with free range eggs as an option as well. I go every week! They have a good range of free range meats to and it's reasonably priced, actually affordable. A++++ for the Grey Lynn butchers.

  • Greatest find in Auckland! [+]
    "The Grey Lynn Butchers has got to be one of the greatest finds in Auckland. The selection of meats and cuts have got to be some of the best I have had. Especially the sausages, The Hungarian, Cracked Pepper, and Chicken, Chilli, Coriander sausages are among my favorites. I have had a lot of gourmet sausages from around the world and these are the best I have had so far. As far as the staff go they are fantastic, they can give you whatever cut you want and tell you how to cook it and always go the extra mile. They have lots of Game meat (Venison, Wild Rabbit, Crocodile, Wallaby,etc) which can be incredibly hard to find. 10 out of 10 for the Grey Lynn Butchers. If you don't go your missing out!
    Matt Kelso"
  • I Travel Across Town [+]
    "I travel from Parnell to these guys. I've got a few friends who have been telling me that the piri piri chicken is the best in Auckland. I have to say I feel that their pork belly is the best in Auckland, not to mention their sausages. Friendly staff too makes a visit here all worth while.

  • Perfect For The BBQ [+]
    "With the days warming up it was time for the old BBQ to get back into action - we headed to Grey Lynn Butchers and picked up the best sausages and lamb chops. So good! The service was awesome - would recommend this place to anyone.
    Laurena".
  • Spotless & Friendly [+]
    "Even though the door said they closed at 3:00pm, they still let me in at 4:00pm. Never seen a butchers so clean in my life. The lady that served me was extremely helpful and very nice. They didn't have the cuts of meat on display i was looking for so she went out back and cut me exactly what I wanted. The meat was excellent. I will be going back.
    Nick".
  • Best Butcher In Auckland! [+]
    "Hi Lucia,

    I am not a local, not a Grey Lynn resident, in fact I catch two buses there and two buses back to shop at the best damn Butchers shop in Auckland. Not only is the meat spectacular and the prices fantastic, you are going to meet with two of the nicest people around, in Eddie and Lucia. Nothing is too much trouble for this dynamic duo, and I have watched their business go from strength to strength. For my sake and the sake of my belly, I hope to be your customer for many, many years to come. See you next week or later this week.

    Fiona".
