healthy for your family - your hometown butcher

The Jolly family has been serving meats and seafood to Reno for over 80 years. Butcher Boy Meat Market upholds the Jolly’s long-standing tradition of building a relationship with ranchers and bringing customers the tastiest, healthiest and freshest meats and seafood available.

We live by one simple rule- “We would rather serve 1 customer 100 times, than serve 100 customers once.”

George Jolly's first meat market 1932.jpg

Over 80 years of tradition!

The Jolly family staked their claim on the Reno scene in November of 1932 when George Jolly opened Rovetti’s market in downtown Reno. Fast forward a few decades and we are keeping that tradition alive and well thanks to the loyal families that have supported us through generations.

From Rovetti’s, to the Sparks Market, California Market, and a hand in many others, George inspired his son Dallas to get into the business and carry on the tradition. Along came Reno Meat and Butcher Boy in the 1970’s. Dallas’s nephew Ken Jolly started young at the family shop, as all the young ones did, with a broom in his hand.

Ken took over the reigns fully in 1995 and started grooming his son Clint to join the business. Clint’s passions lead him to a culinary career which added a new dynamic to Butcher Boy, and finally following his own path. You’ll still find him hanging out at the shop with his father Ken on occasion, and continuing to take in all of his expertise in business and life.

Other than some holidays, we are open Tuesday through Saturday from 9am to 6 pm.
