VonGeertsem Butcher Shoppe


You might not expect an ex-drunk who developed his business plan in the state pen to become the butcher of buzz to food-savvy upscale clients in Oak Lawn and the Park Cities. But 41-year-old Greg Geerts is all about personal redemption, and his shop (known just as VG’s to its regulars) has found a solid marketing niche for customers who want better than supermarket fare. The spartan little store is a deliciously retro entrée to custom cuts of top-of-the-shelf veal, ham, lamb, free-range chicken, or the specialty, certified Angus beef that’s 90 days corn fed and 29 days dry aged.

Let this shop know you found them on D Magazine’s Online Directories.
