I know the inquiry about Buck's Meats was years ago, but I had to answer anyway. My grandmother frequently took the bus from San Francisco to visit us in the suburbs; after my parents divorced money was tight, so my grandmother always brought a shopping bag full of meat with her to make sure we didn't starve (that is literally the most Italian grandmother thing anyone could do). It was always Buck's! I can still see the very neat paper-wrapped packages and the red "Buck's Meat" lettering on the wide tape. Needless to say, that got us through some hard times until we got back on our feet.

My grandmother and great-grandmother wouldn't get meat anywhere else. They were very particular!
