Bright Oak Meats, on the corner of 7th and Main Street in downtown Springfield Oregon is a real find. I didn't know about it until word of mouth reached my ear, and I had driven by it many times. See, I am not just about flowers and vegetables. I like meat too.
Local meat and different meat than you find in Safeway or Albertsons is what is available at Bright Oak Meats. But, what brought me in the door was the jerky. I love jerky and they make their own. Also, they have several different flavors of jerky.
Great price on the scales, but that is for pepperoni, not jerky. Fast, friendly, helpful service. My favorite flavor of jerkey is the sweet and spicy. Although, I tried the buffalo last time and it was very flavorful, if a bit on the dry side. Now, that is funny, jerky on the dry side.
They also serve up steaks, roasts, hamburger and the like. I tried their New York strip and it was outstanding. I also had a boneless rib eye and it was also good, but surprising, the strip was better.
So, my recommendation for meat is to try Bright Oak Meats on 7th and Main Street in downtown Springfield. Let me know what you think.
