Patak Meats

Close to a decade ago, I landed a cushy job on Cumberland Parkway (my first real job after graduation). My hours were so great that I could go on 2-hour lunches. I worked with Eastern European software developers who used to go to this meat shop religiously. So I tagged along one day and discovered meat heaven. It was a mere 20-minute drive from work so going there on my lunch hour became a regular habit. It also meant I didn’t have to wait for that first Saturday each month to get my meat fix. I’ve been a regular customer ever since,  still visiting at least once or twice a month.

Patak Meat makes a wide variety of European meats on the premises. The store is literally meat heaven. They have fresh and processed sausages, fresh cuts of beef, pork and chicken, smoked meat and sausages, dry-cured products, cheeses, and Eastern European grocery and food items such as biscuits, cookies, candies, chocolates, sauces, and the like.

Patak’s products are almost all natural. Almost, because there’s this one, single ingredient that they use that prevents them from being classified as such. This is the reason why you will never find their products at Whole Foods. People flock to Patak’s daily. My last visit was a week ago on a Thursday. As usual, they had a line out the door. But the line moves fast.

My regular purchases have always included bacon, Boston butt, garlic beef bacon, and Czech salami. These are my staples and I get them at least once a month. This visit, I added a few things to my essentials: turkey, black forest ham, fresh sausages, a pound of Polish sausage, and smoked pork chops.

The meats keep really well (refrigerated in air tight containers) and I’ve found that they will last up to two weeks (the salami lasts far longer). I really, really love their bacon. It is mild tasting and comes in wide strips. My family has a unique way of serving bacon (my dad always made it this way for us) — the strips are fried lightly in a skillet (without oil) just long enough until the edges curl and brown lightly. The strips are then drained on paper towels then sprinkled with sugar. I thought bacon was always eaten this way until I was maybe 5 or 6 years old when I was astounded to find bacon served crispy in restaurants. I refuse to eat crispy bacon to this day.

The Boston butt makes for fantastic sandwiches. The taste is just amazing and I highly recommend getting this cut. Although, the turkey and black forest ham are quite as good. The fresh sausages are best grilled, and served with grilled onions and green peppers.

My mom, a devotee of Murphy’s, is a huge fan of their smoked pork chops which are only available on their spring/summer menu (they are replaced by the pork shank in the fall/winter). Murphy’s gets these pork chops from Patak’s. The 18 pieces I got for her totaled a little over $72 so they were roughly $4 apiece. Give it a good re-heating on a charcoal grill and you have a fantastic main dish.

You must try this place. Once you have, you’ll never buy grocery deli products ever again. The high quality (and taste) of their meats is just unbelievable and prices are so inexpensive (cured, and smoked deli meats average $2.50 a pound). Also a must-try are their fresh ribeye steaks, baby back ribs (fresh and smoked), fresh bratwurst, salami (they have tons of different kinds), fresh porkchops, and the assorted sauces.  Don’t go when you’re hungry or you’ll end up buying the entire place.

    Um…maybe I missed something, but what’s the one ingredient that keeps the meat from qualifying for the “All Natural” tag?

  • 2 Chloe // Feb 27, 2009 at 5:22 pm

    They didn’t want to tell me. Trade secret, perhaps.

    This place looks amazing! We have nothing like it in the Hendersonville, NC area. Perhaps a trip to Atlanta should be in my near future?

  • 4 Chloe // Mar 3, 2009 at 9:24 am

    Absolutely — let me know if you’re ever in town and we’ll hit all the foodie stops!

  • 5 Hendersonville Epicurean // Mar 3, 2009 at 11:37 am

    Will do!

    I have lived just 3-4 minutes from this place since the mid 90′s and I never really knew what it was (open to the public, bulk sales, etc.). I happened to drive past today and noticed the cars out front, so I decided to go in and check it out. I think I have found my new butcher shop! Bought some brats and Italian sausage for the weekend. Can’t wait to get them on the grill!

  • 7 Chloe // Mar 20, 2009 at 5:22 pm

    Chris — I was there yesterday. Had to wait in line for a whole hour! You should try the garlic bacon, Praga ham, and Czech salami. And you should never buy grocery deli meat ever again :)

    P.S. So inexpensive, too, right?

  • 8 Chris // Mar 20, 2009 at 6:32 pm

    Absolutely! I got four links of bratwurst and four of the hot Italian and I was out $5.18. Also noticed the salami price per pound was almost half what it is at the deli counter at Publix. They most definitely have a new regular customer! Also, they carry some of the Knorr dry soups that my wife and I regularly ate when we lived in Poland. That’s a huge plus because you can’t find those just anywhere.

    The line today wasn’t bad at all. I went about 10:40 this morning and was approximately 6th in line. I was in and out in under 15 min.

    My family has been going to Patak since it was opened (we are a German family). This place DOES have the best meat, and at the best prices. My dad lives in Mableton and makes a trip there about once a week. I’m glad it got some recognition!

  • 10 Chuck // Apr 21, 2010 at 4:35 pm

    A Friend referred me to the place, and i checked out their Website. As a fellow who is Half German with home(s) in the Bundesrepublik…it alsome brought tears to me eyes when I saw the list. when I go back to Germany, I spend half of my time in Bavaria, the other half in Westphalia. This Fleish Shop has the wursts from both Regions…..and I will be there Friday with a Long List!

    I served PATAK-Sausages, back in the days at the Ol’ Heidelberg on Roswell Road, Buckhead. You can’t get ‘em any better, here in Bavaria (Bamberg).
    I’m set for a trip to Atl-GA, tomorrow. You bet I will be there. Perhaps I catch the food-court at the Farmars-Market.
