Carlsbad’s Premium Full-Service Meat Market

As Carlsbad’s premium full-service meat market, Tip Top Meats provides outstanding customer service and the highest quality products. We are one of the last butcher shops in Southern California to buy meat hanging—not boxed. Our tradition and values have held true since 1967. Our line of hand-cut Angus beef steaks, pork, and poultry products are a cut above the rest.

San Diego County’s Premier Local Butcher

Tip Top Meats is widely recognized as San Diego County’s premier local butcher. We process meats in-house and have them on display. We also offer custom cuts to order. We dry-age our meat for 28 days to allow for maximum retention of that mouthwatering flavor you are looking for. We process both wild game and home-fed animals. Tip Top Meats provides our butcher services to local schools, home farms, and county fairs. Our smokehouse, sausage kitchen, and prep room are state-licensed and inspected. There is a licensed inspector on premises during business hours to ensure that proper handling procedures are followed.

Widest Variety of Top-Quality Meats

In addition, we produce a wide variety of fine meats—including smoked bacon, ham, chicken, Salisbury steak, meatloaf, pastrami, and corned beef. Our Diestel Turkeys are range-grown, naturally fed, and available from 8 to 50 lbs. Our ground beef is ground several times daily. We take special orders every day—from ground pork, veal, Salisbury steak, ham loaves, smoked chicken, turkey, or pork loins.
