|Quality. Want a perfectly marbled, locally raised ribeye? Some smoked turkey or mouth-watering beef jerky? Stop in at Bud’s Custom Meats in Riverside. Bud’s is famous for its beef jerky, and owner, Doug Havel, (who is one of the more energized individuals I’ve come across in a while) says it is one of their most sought after retail items.
For the more adventurous, Bud’s stocks elk, rabbit and even turtle. But one of the products that brings people back for more is hamburger. “What makes it stand out?” I asked. “Well, our burger is courser ground than what you might pick up at the grocery store,” said Doug. “It has good flavor and a texture that many customers have come to prefer.”
