In 2007, 2010, 2011 and 2012, Steve's Meat Market was awarded the "Top of the Town Meat Market" in 5280, Denver's Mile Hi Magazine. The article reads, "Tucked along Olde Wadsworth Boulevard in Olde Towne Arvada, Steve's offers something a little different- Elk, Deer, Buffalo...... processed on site. If you're a hunter, chances are you have already found this gem, but if not, drop off your game and have us make our excellent sausage and jerky (28 different types)...and the prices are cheap" - (unless, of course, you order too much!!!)
I’m 47 and went hunting for the first time in my life. I did not know what to expect, particularly with the processing part. I gutted, skinned, and quartered my first deer (with the help of a friend) in WY and he said take it to your place to get it processed. All I can say is WOW. I’ll be hunting again and I will definitely be back. You guys are amazing. Thanks for suggesting the sampler package!
My husband's hunting buddies turned us on to Steve's for game processing, and we've been hooked ever since. If you're not happy with your careless, dirty, and/or clueless game processor, head on over to Steve's. You're welcome. Traffic often backs up here during hunting season, but it is worth the wait. They'll power-wash the carcass, followed by a quick pass with a flame-thrower device that burns off stray hairs. We've never found a single hair in our meat, and we've probably gone through 300+ pounds of their processed game. Although many animals pass through Steve's, the place doesn't smell like a landfill!!! It actually smells quite appetizing, even in the receiving dock where they wash and single the carcasses. The whole operation is clean, efficient, and professional. These guys know what they're doing, and prices are reasonable. The finished product is vacuum packed and shrink-wrapped, and they even put a net around roasts. When's the last time you saw somebody do that? But their sausages are where they really shine. My favorites are the breakfast sausage and teriyaki snack stix. They also make tasty jerky in both natural which is my favorite (only in retail store) and jerky-shooter style Highly recommend the Sampler Pack which gives you a little taste of everything at a discounted price. If you didn't fill you tag this year, head on over anyway- you can purchase game products from their store. Check out their web gallery at http://www.stevesmeatmarket.com.

Steve, You've processed our animals for years and have always exceeded our expectations on the quality and taste of your specialty products.
Best Wishes, Joe W,
I have been processing three deer a season at Steve's for the past five years and have always been happy. The deer have always been cut the way I requested. I have been helped by both Steve and his wife, and they have been very accommodating, including one warm evening, when they returned to the market to tag in one of my deer after hours so it wouldn't spoil. I would encourage any hunter to have their meat processed at Steve's.
Hello! I am a 13 year old boy and absolutely love Steve's Meat Market! My family and I first heard of you through Tom Martinos referral list and ever since trying you we have been very impressed! You have the most affordable pricing , you have the best meat in the world and your food is made with high quality! I also respect you guys for having to make all of the meat for the customers as I know how hard, and tiring you get! In comparison to other companies that do the same service, I would rank you 10,000 times better since you do a wonderful job on meat choices and since you have the most affordable prices! Congrats on your accomplishments, and keep up the excellent work! You guys rock, thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We are hoping that we are successful and can bring you an elk to process for us. We really like the cleanliness of your facility and the type of packaging you use. We just ate some bison breakfast sausage you processed for us... it was great!
We stopped by here on a whim last Saturday and were very pleasantly surprised. We are always on the hunt for quality fresh sausage, and I think we have found out mark. The visit to Steve's solidified our decision to buy a stand-alone freezer......we plan to stock up and keep our tummies happy.

Just got the package you sent to the troops today. Thank you so much. We really appreciate it. The troops are eating it like it is going out of style. I am pretty sure that the way these folks are eating your jerky, they will be making purchases from your online retail store. On a personal note, I want to thank you for supporting our efforts out here. You didn't have to send any jerky, but you did. You didn't have to send that much jerky, but you did. God Bless you and thank you for helping me to make my troops happy. I will never forget you.

Just returned to NYC from a 2 week trip to Avon. My buddy there had shot an elk and you processed it for him. The Polish Sausage and Breakfast Sausage were excellent!!! You folks do a great job. Thanks!
Your products and speciality items are always a favorite in our home, even the baby loves your teriyaki stix! The kids absolutely love your stuff and are always asking me when am I going back to Steve's Meat Market to get some more of their favorite items!!! Thank You So MUCH!!!
I just wanted to drop you guys a quick note and say that I was thoroughly impressed with how professional your business is ran. From calling on the phone, ease of dropping off my deer, to picking it up when it was scheduled to be complete. Excellent experience and I will be back next year.
Happy customer, Ben G.
Great service. We just found out about Steve's and what a great find. They're SUPER friendly, the facilities are nice and clean and it was an all around great experience.
The BEST meat processing in Colorado! My family has been going to Steve's Meat Market for the past 8 years and have never been unsatisfied with the quality and their reasonable pricing. Steve's Meat Market is by far the best priced in Colorado, and they get it done in a timely fashion so that you can enjoy your tasty treats! My favorites are their Jalapeno jerky and their breakfast sausage! Yum! Thanks Steve
I wanted to say thank you, Steve and Karen, for your kindness and generosity today. My dad was truly overwhelmed at your facility and he got in the car and said I think those were the most genuine nicest people I have ever met. Thank you for making your place of business truly an experience. Thank you for your business and even more for your friendship.
Recently one of the police officers in our unit was deployed to Iraq, and will be there for sometime. He blogs us to let us know how he's doing and that all the soldiers in his unit are safe. He recently mentioned that there were 3 soldiers in his unit that got no mail or packages. After talking with them, he sent us a wish list from those soldiers. One of the items on the list was jerky. I immediately thought of Steve's Meat Market and what great jerky you made. I contacted Karen and asked if you would donate 3 packages of your jerky. When I arrived to pick up the packages, she presented me with 3 one-lb packages of jerky. I was total overwhelmed. I sent off the jerky with other items on the wish list and just heard back from Chris. Chris tells me that the soldiers were overjoyed with what was in the packages, but most of all, how great the jerky was. Chris says that's all they talk about. I know Chris thanks you from the bottom of his heart as well as myself, as it really made 3 soldiers day in Iraq.
We lived in Golden, CO for a year, and visited Steve's Meat Market ALL the time for jerky and sausages. We really miss it and as you can imagine, we don't have anything like the meat you have, out here in Hawaii.

We want to send a sincere "Thank you" for donating the beef jerky for the troops in Iraq. We stuffed the stockings we had, then I gave the rest of the bag to the Marine Corp League to stuff in their stockings. The troops loved it!

On Saturday, October 2nd, 2010, I came into your store to pick up my antelope from processing. As I told your cashier how I worked all summer to pay for my hunting fees this fall, he was nice enough to give me a discount from my total. Overall, this gentleman was extremely nice. He was polite in every manner, and as we were hauling the meat out the door, he gave me a free camo ball-cap with Steve's Meat Market written on the front of it. With this only being my second time bringing my meat to Steve's (only my second animal that I have harvested), the personnel working there were very friendly. Everything that we have ever ordered from Steve's has tasted great, and have not been disappointed by anything yet.
Anyway, just thought I would drop that note to you guys, and say thanks again. You have my business till the end. Keep up the good work guys!
Thanks again and know that all you do is much appreciated!
Steve's is GREAT!
I heard about Steve's from a friend and not sure what to expect. I heard they were a bit unfriendly during their peak seasons but I just visited the shop and they were fantastic! Karen is a jewel, so nice and patient with me while I figured out exactly what types of meat I weanted, and Steve came out and said hello too. Everyone was awesome to deal with and I can't wait to fill my freezer next week! Steve's definitely found themselves a new customer.
