After years of large, all-in-one grocery stores, the nation is experiencing a resurgence in neighborhood butchershops, and for meat-eating homecooks, that means access to better, more flavorful cuts of their favorite animals. The now-open Block and Board, located at 8421 SW Terwilliger Blvd. in South Burlingame, does it right: focusing on chemical-free, local meats carved from whole animals in-house.

But Block and Board is more than a butchershop, and it was originally modeled after Seattle's popular Bill the Butcher natural butcher shop chain. You'll find house-smoked bacon, house-made sausages, happy hour, outdoor seating, and lunch options. Whether seated inside or out, you can go to town on deli sandwiches; sides like burnt end baked beans and beef chili; and perhaps surprisingly, bento boxes—all featuring house-butchered meats.

Block and Board opened quietly in January, and owner Erick Paulson tells Eater the response has been so positive that he's considering adding brunch. He recently kicked off happy hour, with daily discounts from 3 to 6 p.m. (except Sundays, when it ends at 5 p.m.). On March 1, it will expand hours and operated Tuesday through Thursday, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
