Perry’s Food Store


Sometimes you can learn everything you need to know about a business by asking a single question.

For instance, at a barbecue shack, an affirmative answer to the question “Y’all got sweet tea?” is a sure sign that the pitmaster knows how to handle a rack of ribs. If a taqueria has the correct answer to the question “Do you have goat tacos?” (the correct answer is “yes”), you know you’re in good hands.

And at a meat market, “Do you carry snoot?” provides a similar level of insight.

Perry’s sells snoot.

Perry’s also sells just about every other kind of meat you could possibly want, including big, tasty pork shoulders, which we like to cover in dry rub and slow-smoke for several hours before serving with a little hint of Memphis-style barbecue sauce.



Although it’s primarily known as a meat market, Perry’s also offers a few frozen foods, some produce (including wonderfully fresh mushrooms), a good selection of local barbecue sauces and rubs, several kinds of Cajun rice mixes, Jamaican jerk seasoning, cold drinks (including Jones soda), and just about everything else you’d need to put together a decent meal.


The prices are very reasonable, and the service is good, although you might have to wait in line at the meat counter if you show up after 5 p.m., when the between-work-and-dinner crowd starts coming in.

Perry’s is located on Lewis Avenue, just north of 11th Street. Hours are 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.

  1. My family has been a customer of Perry’s for decades — first my mom & dad, and now my wife and I. Great butcher shop.

    Love the blog! You’re doing a great service by featuring these local businesses. They deserve the exposure.

  2. Okay, so what’s “snoot”?

  3. Pig snout. You barbecue it ’til it’s crispy and serve it with barbecue sauce. Tastes like an assertive pork rind.

  4. Best burger I’ve had in YEARS. Great ground beef, and am looking forward to a ribeye tonight.

  5. […] which can be hard to find in Tulsa. Great People, great food, you don’t get better than that. Perry’s is located on Lewis Avenue, just north of 11th […]

  6. Hands down, the best meat in town. Keep it up!!

  7. Perry’s is the greatest meat merket in the area. Not to mention it’s been in business for 70 years! You can’t get a better steak ANYWHERE else.

  8. I think that one thing that should have been mentioned is the meat packages that they put together. they are a great value. my husband and i order a package every week or two (depending on the size) and we love the value and the quality. we can call ahead and order the broiler pack and it will be ready for pickup later that day. if you purchase a frozen meat pack, they will give you a $2.00 coupon off the next package. we freeze most of the meat we buy anyway. usually what we do is get the frozen meat pack and then a fresh chicken for that night. their meat and chicken are the best in Tulsa!!

  9. Back in the late 80’s, I went to Perry’s to get my dog some bones. The worker asked the size and breed of dog I had. He then cut the bones to fit my dog. That’s the kind of service you will find at Perry’s. Excellent.

  10. Does anyone know if Perry’s meat is grown in Oklahoma? Someone told me once that they grew their own cattle and cattle feed.

  11. we get our beef from various beef companies such as excel. great quality. sadly we don’t have our own cattle.

  12. THE best meat in Tulsa, incomparable!

  13. I would like to know if you have ox tails now, and what the price is on 5 to 10 lbs, and what 40lbs of chitterlings cost? you may call me at 918 582 2278, i require this information “ASAP” Please. i do have voice mail you may leave a message, I tried to call but the phone just rang , i could not leave a message. thank you for your patience.

  17. I moved to Tulsa from California, the first time I ate one of their brown skin Hot Links i have been hooked every since. The best Hot Links I’ve ever had especially grilled, in fact, I have driven all the way from Little Rock, AR to Tulsa with ice chest in hand just to get their Hot Links. I wish I could have them shipped instead as that is a long and expensive (Gas) drive for the best hot links in the world !!!
