Doreck’s Meat Market is celebrating an important anniversary! This year marks the 40th year that they have been proudly serving the Santa Fe and Galveston County community! Celebrate with Doreck’s by coming by and picking up delicious meat for your own barbecue! 

Started in September 1972 by Jack and Nancy Doreck, Doreck’s Packing Co. has been providing the goods for many meals, cookouts and cook-offs over the last 22 years. 

Since 1994, after Jack and Nancy retired, the family business has continued the tradition under the direction of Raymond and John Doreck with help from their sister, Laurie Hadley. Now, yet another generation of the family is stepping up to work at this family business! John’s son Christopher now works full-time at Doreck’s, and Raymond’s children, Raymond and Rachel, work part-time.

Doreck’s has also been doing some home improvements over the last few months, so come by and enjoy the updated storefront.

Whether it’s for an outdoor barbecue or a holiday feats, stop by Doreck’s for some of their fresh, high quality cuts of meat. It doesn’t matter if you are grilling for the neighborhood, or making a roast for just the family, Doreck’s has still got you covered! Their selection of meats includes steaks, sausage, roasts, briskets, ribs, their own beef jerky and more. 

Doreck’s also has gift certificates available that are perfect for Christmas!

At Doreck’s you can find an array of Rib eye steaks, T-bone steaks, sirloins, round steak, flat iron steak, chuck roast, cutlets, whole rib eyes, pork chops, country style pork ribs, pork spare ribs, hamburger, stew meat, fajita meat, sausage, jalapeño sausage, jalapeno and cheese sausage, pork pan sausage, boudin, summer sausage, lunch meats, cheddar (rat cheese), special cuts on request, chicken, freezer packs, hinds and half’s. Doreck’s is also the place to go for any live game and livestock processing.

Doreck’s sells only USDA choice meats, which are a class above select meats that are typically sold in most stores. Even though the staff at Doreck’s sells a higher grade of meat, their prices are still very competitive. 

The friendly and knowledgeable staff at Doreck’s strives to educate their customers about the meats they are purchasing. Customers should understand the difference between the choice meat and the select meat. Meat labeled choice grade has been fed longer and, therefore has more marbling resulting in more tenderness and flavor.

Doreck’s is state-inspected weekly to be sure that they are meeting strict guidelines and requirements, and they are also health inspected. This double-inspection results in clean and fresh environments and products.

In addition to fine meats, Doreck’s can supply tools necessary to deliver a meal to the table. 

The same brand of knives Doreck’s uses is available in the store, including butcher knives, saws for field dressing deer, slicing meats at a cook-off or in your own kitchen.


Hunting Season

We are in the middle of deer season, and Doreck’s is the place to bring your meat for processing. They have been processing deer meat 40 years, and still process only one deer at a time, ensuring no meat is ever mixed. Doreck’s can turn your meat into pan sausage, smoked sausage, steaks, roasts and many more cuts.

Doreck’s sausage is especially popular, Their own original recipe, the sausage comes in four flavors: regular, jalapeño, jalapeño and cheese, and hot. It is popular with cookouts, cook-offs and often purchased by organizations for events. It is also available in local grocery stores.

Doreck’s has also recently installed a new scrolling community bulletin board. This board will help customers and passerby’s keep up with weekly specials as well as with what is going on with the Santa Fe Indians and other local organization.


Giving Back

Doreck’s belongs to Hunters For The Hungry. If you or any hunters you know do not want your deer, pay the small processing fee and Doreck’s will donate all meat and donations to local charities such as The Woman’s Crisis Center. Contact them for information on donating meat to a local charity.
