  • Gilles provided us with such amazing meat and service! If I wanted a good cut of meat, Gilles was the place to go, as it was worth the trip! On many occasions he stunned me by his honesty and kind nature. For example, one time I went in and asked him for tender steaks as my family was coming over for Father’s Day. I told him we would be about 13 people. He told me which steak was really tender, but they were very expensive and that I should keep them for a special meal between my husband and I. Then he said, but this other steak is very nice and tender too, but not as expensive and that my whole family will love it, & gave me a few tips. I was deeply touched. Gilles was right! The whole family loved the steaks and asked me where I got them. Thank you Gilles! My very deepest sympathy to Gilles’ wife, children, family and friends. Prayers for the repose of his soul and for strength for his family and friends. - Posted by: Gaby Musick (Customer ) on: Nov 27, 2021
