Taste Buds: Miklas Meat Market

Buds grab quick lunch at Wheeling store

It was a very busy Easter weekend for the Buds.

Between a short-staffed newsroom, extra church services, coloring eggs and visiting family, Taste Buds had to be done on the fly. In an effort to be as efficient as possible, Bud Em decided to drop in on the folks at Miklas Meat Market in Wheeling for some lunch-to-go while out running errands.

Having been born and raised in the Woodsdale area, Bud Em is certainly no stranger to the specialty market, as her family has shopped there for as long as she can remember. What you may know about Miklas' is that they have a wide variety of quality, fresh meats, hams, turkeys, deli meats, cheeses and salads, some frozen foods and several grocery items. They even have a bevy of value priced meat bundles available to fill your freezer.

What you may not know is that they offer hot sandwich options and will prepare any deli sandwich just the way you like it! Yep - patrons can enjoy a meatball hoagie for just $4, while a hot sausage and cheese sandwich or homemade pepperoni roll (baked fresh daily) will run you $3. Made-to-order sandwiches can be made with any combination of deli meat and cheese topped with your choice of fixings including lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle and condiments.

Bud Em and her hungry crew picked out a variety of sandwiches to try, among them were two hot sausage and cheese sandwiches, a pepperoni roll, and a deli sandwich of fried chicken deli meat and topped with lettuce, tomato and onion.

Digging right into the deli sandwich, Bud Em found the chicken to be delicious - tasting just like yummy fried chicken, but with just a trace of fat. Win win! Topped with plenty of fresh toppings on soft white bread, it really hit the spot. Bud Em would most definitely order this again.

The rest of her little party scarfed down the other sandwiches, reporting that the sausage and cheese sandwiches had just the right amount of sauce and the meat was not overly spicy. The pepperoni roll was soft and delicious. In fact, Bud Em's daughter is a huge fan of Miklas' pep rolls and eats them quite often. Overall, the sandwiches were plenty of food for three people and at just over 11 bucks, quite a value as well! Of course, one could always compliment a sandwich with a side of cole slaw or any of the cold deli salads Miklas offers.

Whether you are looking for a tasty sandwich or stocking up on meats cut to order, Miklas Meat Market has got you covered.
