Default They are a total joke- Rockwall deer processing.

They've had my deer now for 4 months. Called them several times, not ready. They've given it to the wrong guy, or they let it ruin somehow. They don't have the guts to own up. POS.

I always use Whitakers in Iowa Park. They are always 5-7 days. Tried Rockwall this time cause it's close to home. Big mistake.

I hate to hear that happened to you. My friend had the same thing happen to him. Taxidermist went awol for over a year and then called him one day out of the blue and delivered his mounts. Crazy! Hope it eventually works out for you. Thanks for the heads up. They won’t ever get any business from me based on your post!

I would go down there to inquire for the record. And go at their busiest time of day. Better still, first ask how long it takes to have a deer processed...then ask about yours. It would be great if you could video that, and post it on youtube and the green screen.

You would be more mad if you had actually gotten your meat back. They suck. Period. Go to Kuby’s or the Cinnamon Creek (cant remember the new name). Jeff works there.

My buddy and I dropped of 4 deer at Ye Ole Butcher Shop, years ago. Three healthy does and a six-point buck.

Six or seven weeks later, the call us to pick up our meat. We each got two and a half paper grocery bags of "meat". Nowhere near what we gave them.

My buddy complained, and they "found" enough to fill out his half bag.

Never went back.

Landers processing in Garland is great. They outsource their sausage to Cinnamon Creek. 5 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Tried Kuby’s with a hog in March when Landers closed for the off season. Also 5 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Couple of my buddies use Rockwall and never get their meat back in less than four weeks. I used to use Gormans in Terrel. The two or three that I took there I got back in less than a week. Really liked their sausage. I process my own now or I would still be going there.

Sorry to hear you got the shaft Gary. I’d recommend Kubys....good customer service and great product all the way around. Gorman’s in Terrel did a good job with a deer I took them many years ago but I felt they shorted me on some meat.

I took mine there too this year as we just had a kid and didn't have the time or energy to do it ourselves this year. It took them 11 weeks, though they said it would take six to eight. Quality of work is sub par, the steaks were not broken down into separate muscles before being cut. If I decide not tho do my own butchering again, I will take it to Kubys in Dallas.

Took a small doe in there the week of Christmas. Got it back in mid Feb. Cost me $180 for steaks and about 20lbs of breakfast sausage that was supposed to be made hot. It isn't even mild in my opinion. They take too long and high prices. Won't go back.

Gormans mixed the ground meat, at least they did years ago. They won't get any more from me.

Kubys is good quality, but high priced imo.

Ye ole butcher shoppe messed up my order.

I'll be going back to Po Boys in Merrit with my next one unless I find someone good closer.

Cinnamon Creek does all Rockwall’s Sausage there is not a smoker on site. You get 12 backstrapp filets back. Doesn’t matter how big your deer was. I gave them a deer on December 17th called them two weeks ago. “ Oh we just finished it”. Guys on my lease confronted them about the blackstrap shortage the owners attitude was tough crapp.

I don't use Kuby's anymore, their minimum batch for sausage is 40lbs. If you don't have 40 lbs. of meat where do you think the rest of the meat comes from????

I guess from nowhere since they don't take your meat unless it is not 40 lbs.?
I've never seen that there because I can take in a minimum 5 lbs. of duck to have sausage made.
I know they don't mix their meat as I have asked for special sausage, like just cheese summer sausage and got it that way.

Kuby's hot breakfast sausage is better than Cinnamon Creek but everything else at CC is really good. CC is a bit more expensive though. My last 2 deer at Kuby's only took about 1.5 weeks
