Proper Meats + Provisions: A sandwich shop that’s also a butchery
Proper Meats + Provisions is a first-of-its-kind boutique butcher shop featuring hand cut Arizona-raised meats. The deli side of the business is a sandwich menu of 15 to 20 sandwiches all scratch made in-house.
Owned by Paul Moir, they use only Arizona meats on the menu. They butcher everything in house and make all of the meats—brisket, pastrami, turkey, and sausage. Sides of beef and pork are wheeled in on racks through the front door, and customers have a full view of the meat being carved into chops, loins, steaks, filets and more.
“We focus on locally-sourced meats and products from around Arizona and the region,” Morid said. “We produce all of our own pastrami, roast beef, bacon, and all the ingredients for the sandwiches here.”
The ‘provisions’ part is specialty items like Arizona made pasta, house made pot pies, and tomato sauce so you can take it all home and make dinner.
Guest Ara Lynn Nowack, suggested Proper Meats as her top pick. Proper Meats is the one restaurant that she goes to all the time for lunch. “I like that there’s never a wait and it’s a great place to go after work.” she said.
“The French Dip is just fantastic.” Nowack said, “It’s very tender, roast beef and it has the best bread, and I just love the Au Jus sauce.”
Guest Rhonda Mathis ordered the Muffuletta Sandwich. “It comes on focaccia bread that was just light and air,.” she said, “it has three different meats on it, mortadella, capocollo and salami.”
For the grande finale, guest Wayne Ranney ordered the Reuben sandwich. Ranney remarks could be wrapped up in one word: “Delicious.”
The sandwiches are huge. They also have a specialty soda fountain tap where you can pick traditional items like cola, or something a little different like root beer and cream soda.
