In 1923, Monroe, Ellard and Leonard started their business on the cobblestone streets of Chicago, selling the highest quality, hand-selected steaks. Now, nearly a century later, we continue their legacy for providing the finest steaks in the meatpacking capital and beyond. We work directly with master butchers who share our commitment to uncompromised quality, guaranteeing an array of steaks all sourced within 175 miles of Chicago. Because of a grain-based diet, these cuts of meat contain rich marbling and yield a more juicy, tender, and delicious taste.

The Pfaelzer name has always been – and continues to be – synonymous with high quality. Whether you’re celebrating a family event, giving a gift to a loved one, or sending a token of appreciation to a business client, we hope you’ll enjoy sharing the hallmark tastes of Pfaelzer Brothers with the people you value most.

Setting the Highest Standards


Our experts choose from the very best of America's finest and freshest corn and grain-fed beef to ensure the buttery smooth flavor and unrivaled quality of every Pfaelzer Brothers steak. The time and care put into this process is evident from the first mouth-watering bite to the last.

Naturally Aged

Using exact temperatures and the precise climate, all of our steaks are naturally aged for up to twenty-one days to maximize the buttery smooth flavor in every cut. We only select and age a limited number of steaks each year in order to maintain our high standards.

Master Butchers

A true work of art requires the skilled eye and steady hand of a masterful artist. That's why each Pfaelzer cut is expertly hand-trimmed by our Master Butchers, using the same techniques first made famous in Chicago's stockyards.

Buttery Smooth Flavor

The hand-selection, the expert hand trimming, the natural aging, all of these elements are combined to bring you the unsurpassed flavor and quality of a Pfaelzer Brothers steak. It's no wonder our signature flavors have delighted even the hardest-to-please steak connoisseurs for nearly ninety years.
