I've never been to Paisano's but found it online and haven't been disappointed. I can order meat the way I want it cut and they follow my instructions. If they can't, they call me, which I like very much. For the most part, the meat is fresh, but I have found that some cuts are frozen. However, if you specify that you do not want frozen meat, they will either call you or not fill order. Delivery is prompt and free.
