Lee Meisel began training early to be a butcher. He grew up on a cattle ranch, and one of his early jobs was at an old-school butcher shop. He continued his training at the Merc and 715, until finally, in July 2015, the real-estate stars aligned, and Meisel was able to open his own place—Leeway Franks.
Lee’s wife and co-owner of the business, K, says, “Leeway’s flagship sausages are frankfurters and bratwursts, but we also do other specialty sausages like Polish and hot Italian.” And for you early-bird meat-lovers, they’re now serving breakfast on Saturdays at 8 a.m., so drop in for an expertly crafted chorizo breakfast burrito.
