Grilltime Gourmet Meat Shop is the creation of its owner, Andy Elder. Andy certainly knows his way around the hospitality and food industry. Prior to establishing Grilltime in 2008, Andy was senior vice-president of Mr. Greek Restaurants. (Click on any photo to see a larger version.)
Described as a “Gourmet Meat Shop,” the store provides steakhouse quality meats and seafood, prepared foods, sauces, rubs and marinades. Andy also offers classes in grilling and can provide catering services as well.
Grilltime’s steaks rival those of any butcher shop in the city. We are big fans of their pre-marinated Korean ribs, chicken supreme, pulled pork and flank steak.
Grilltime is located on a busy stretch of Laird Drive in Leaside. Andy is a long-time resident of Leaside and participates in and contributes to local events along with other local businesses such as Amsterdam Brewery and Leaside Hockey Arena.
Andy has an amazing number of sauces and marinades which complement anything that you are going to grill. Sauces and marinades from Summer-Kitchen, pickled items, mustard and relishes from Manning Canning, salsa and tortilla chips from Neal Brothers Foods, and his most recent addition, Mexican hot sauces from No. 7 Hot Sauce.
Andy is the nicest fellow you will ever meet, and his staff are super friendly and eager to serve. Don’t hesitate to ask Andy or his staff for grilling tips on any type of meat—they are all expert chefs!
We are so lucky to have this gem in our community.
