A gem of a sausage shop in Lockeford, California. There's usually a line outside since the place can only hold the length of their displace case, literally! Lockeford Meats and Sausage off Highway 88, offers a mixture of various types of fresh and smoked sausages, jerky, beef sticks, salami, bacon, and marinated tri-tips.
Hours of Operation:
Important Note: If you plan on driving, you'll appreciate the great parking options nearby.
Some of the most amazing meats I've ever had. The Teriyaki beef sticks are to die for as well as their signature Dakota Brats. The jerky has more flavor than I could have ever imagined and their Okie breakfast sausage links pair with ANYTHING breakfast. OR ON THEIR OWN. You absolutely must come here. Very reasonable prices for superior meats. Come early as the line is out the door
Best sausages in northern California hands down, not once in 3 years have I had a bad experience, highly recommend to anyone passing through northern California.
Always a line but well worth it! Love their Hawaiian sausage and beef jerky!
Amazing butcher. Small counter and there is often a line, but it's worth the wait. Favorites include smoked Dakota sausage, beef sticks, dry Salami and ham hock. I think they are known for their sausages, and they have several varieties to choose from. If you're in Lodi, worth stop for some good meats.
Very good sausages and prices to the only problem you need to wait outside because only 11 people's can be inside and there is always a line but it's worth it
Hands down, BEST tri tip, breakfast sausage, bacon & jerky we’ve EVER HAD!!!!!!!
Top notch quality! Always a line but they keep it moving. The crowd is always friendly. We come from Tracy to get the goods here. I can't even pin point what is my favorite here because it's all bomb.
Ahhhhhh yess. Smoked Dakotas Louisiana Hots Jalapenos Cajun Andoiusses Hot Hawaiians We be smoking these on the Traegar soon. Kicking off the summer right.
Been going there for years great service but you got to wait in a line outside worth the wait
The very best sausage I've ever had. We've been coming here for years. Although there's always a long line, it's well worth the wait!
Awesome place to ride too on a Harley, and the meats are AMAZING. BE TEADY TO STAND IN LINE!! With the wait!!
Worth the 30min drive from Rio Vista. Can't wait to try my tri tip and the many assorted sausages. The teriyaki bites did not make it home, lol.
Can someone PLEASE take a picture of the cooking instructions and post it. THANKS. Drove from Antioch stood in line twice because my niece and uncle wanted to get something to and I purchased some each time. I brought 2 of 6 different sausages the bacon, chorizo and beef stick.
Best place in the county to stand in line it smells WONDERFULL!!! GREAT SAUSAGES AND SNACKS TOO! Super service!!
Going to this place was my first, I've passed thru Lockeford an came across this shop with a people lining up to go into the shop so asked what's going on an was told this place had some of the best of many type of meats/ sausage you will ever find. So had to come inside an see for myself. An I was not disappointed. Bought afew of sortments of meat an can why people line up from buy here. Heard people come from far away just to buy here. Can be pay abit but if you see what type of sorted meats an such here you will no be disappointed. It's a small place but coming here . Friendly staff waiting to make your order great. Open 7days a week. Tru this Covid crisis they are practicing safe distancing an so on. Come check this place out for yourself.
As person whom as a kid who grew up in both the Midwest and the South, you grow up understanding what good sausages taste like. This is legit the best Sausage place is Northern California and while I keep trying to find better, I have yet too. Their maple sausage is the ultimate breakfast sausage, the Hawaiian Luau is an awesome sweet sausage. I highly recommend the Street Fair is looking for just a premium sausage. A little pricey per lb for most of them but 100% worth it. Honestly you can't go wrong with a single sausage in the store. All are top notch. Be aware that you might need to wait in line for a bit because trust me this place is know among people who like to grill and smoke meat. Overall highly recommend if looking for a Supremely high quality sausage shop.
If everyone had an idea of what they wanted BEFORE you get there, the wait wouldn't be half as long! Customer service is above and beyond, the meats are even better! Worth any wait time.
This place is iconic! Always worth the wait in line. Sometimes I will drive over to Lockeford from Stockton just because I am craving the teriyaki beef sticks🤤 The chorizo is good and omg the luau links...pretty much everything is amazing actually! Apple sausage is amazing for breakfast. If I am ever at a festival or event and the food vender says "proudly serving Lockeford Meat" you know it's gonna be good.
They have a great variety of sausages. They also have bacon, marinated Tri tip ,some sauces ,and seasonings also. You may have to wait in line as sometimes it does get quite long.
The line may be out the door, but it's worth the wait! I grew up on these sausages and think there some of the best you'll ever eat.
I’ve been getting sausage here for many years. Recently purchased over $150 of sausage to enjoy and send half home with my son to San Diego. We cooked some of each for Labor Day weekend and many were very dry compared to how they used to taste. Did something change? Maybe they were previously frozen? Or the normal recipe is no longer being use? Hope to get a response and that we get a better supply the next time around.
We stood in line over 45 minutes and as always it's worth the wait. We are big fans of their smoked, Dakota brats. With sauteed onions and dressed to your liking, the brats make an excellent meal. We also picked up a half pound of their sausage seasoning for our Thanksgiving turkey. A teriyaki stick for the ride home makes for a totally worthwhile visit to Lockeford.
I grew up eating the meat, sausage and beef jerky all my life. They always did our kill. I have been all the US in the service. Not one place has ever topped Lockeford Meats. My family would buy what I wanted and ship me the food. I would pay double for their. Meets and especially their Jerky. A must if visiting California.
Love love love this place! The best sausages and super staff. The line is usually long but worth the wait. I got lucky today with only a few people ahead of me. The staff is friendly and efficient. I still haven't tried all of the sausages but have really liked the ones I've had so far. Today's new flavors for us are the basil sausage and bacon sausage. Can't wait to get home and cook them!
Stood in Line for over an hour and totally worth every sausage bite!
The best and freshest sausages in Northern California. I only gave them four stars because they need to expand their storeroom. There's a line down the block and around the corner, a three to four hour wait.
One of my favorite spots.. their selection of meats allow for a great variety.. I've never been disappointed by any selection and you have to get their beef sticks!
Best sausage meat ever and they have great flavors. The spicy one is my favorite and there is a Hawaiian sausage and it is delicious it has pineapple. There might be a long wait in line but it is always worth it. I hope they expand their business around the cities around them.
The best sausages, bacon, and tri-tip. I drive 1.5 hours each way and usually have to wait in line for 40 minutes. 110% worth it. If you go try the Hawaiian sausages - spectacular!
Best Sausages and smoky meats in N California. They are doing a good job with Covid safety. We love the Dakota Smoked Sausages best. Have never been disappointed in their meat market.
Jerry is incredible! All of the sausages are like no other! Favorites are Hot Beer Links and Spicy Hawaiian...You really can't go wrong with any of them.
A very popular place! A variety of delicious sausages and snack meats too. Can't go wrong here. Definitely a market to stop by for your next BBQ!
I just tried their "Garlic Sausages" they are absolutely the Best I've ever eaten. when I was growing up there was an old school meat market and they also made their own garlic sausages...and this place makes the same old ones I grew up on...You guys rock and you can tell all the love you put into your work...It really shows...and thank you again for making the best Garlic Sausages in the world...everything from the meat stick to the Garluc Sausages are awesome..
Lockeford Meats is famous for their sausage and meats, and once you taste them, you'll understand why. They are a little hole in the wall spot in the small Sac Delta town of Lockeford, but they are definitely worth the trip. Their chorizo and "Dakota" sausage links are my favorite. Go check them out.
We call it Meadville it's a must stop for a sausage fanatic. They have the best sausages money can buy at reasonable prices and are well worth the 20 minutes or so that you will spend in line bring a cooler so you could fill it up. Try the Hawaiian sausage serve with pineapple circles or chunks and steamed rice with teriyaki sauce.
Great place! The girls behind the counter are very helpful. Only downside is having to wait to get into this place because of how many people go there.
This place is awesome! Great sausage and Bacon. The Biggest improvement they can make is staff needs to be attentive to the customer. You can't provide good service to your customer if you are chatting it up with the other employees. Better customer service can improve the waiting in line.
Best sausages Ive had. Love the Hawaiian ones. Always love stopping there on the way to work. Their beef jerky is so good as well.
Arrived just around 10am on a Saturday and there was a line around the building. My brain tells me that this must be a good thing. The wait wasn't too long and I had great conversation with the couple in front of myself. Finally my turn came and I entered the small storefront with a case packed with all kinds of meaty goodness. I ordered two each of many of their offerings and was very happy with the price. The person helping me was attentive and engaging. They really did a great job and we're very efficient and got me on my way quickly. I arrived at home and immediately made breakfast with the maple sausages I purchased. They were seasoned perfectly and had just enough maple as to not make them too sweet. I can't wait to dig in to all the others. 10 of 10 would definitely go again !!
