IF NOT FOR THE THREATENING SKYLINE, our exhaustion and a two-hour drive home, I expect my husband would have turned into the parking lot of McDonald’s Meats in Clear Lake on a recent Saturday afternoon. He likes meat, especially quality meat from a respected meat market.
That’s McDonald’s Meats, a fourth-generation family business around since 1914. I didn’t grow up in central Minnesota (like Randy), but even I’ve heard of this meat market.
McDonald’s plays on those strengths, promoting longevity, family and quality products on eye-catching signage. What meat lover, especially someone who loves jerky, wouldn’t want to stop for a free sample at this self-proclaimed Jerky Stop?
We even had room in the cooler…

Yum. I love beef jerky.
Have you heard this beautiful spoken word piece?
It’s from the radio show Snap Judgement.
No, I haven’t. But I’ll give it a listen.
A great place for jerky lovers.
I so miss the family-owned meat markets in MN – jerky, smoked pork chops, sausages, etc. Thanks for sharing and taking me down memory road 🙂
You are welcome.
We drive by McDonalds, every time we go to the cabin. Just drove by yesterday afternoon. We have stopped once for Jerky, good stuff!
Have you purchased any other meat besides the jerky?
No, just the Jerky 🙂
