My suburb is not on your delivery area list? Can I still get delivery?

Possibly, yes. Please email or PH 07 3366 2912 to discuss further.


What times do you deliver?

Deliveries are made between 10:00am and 6:00pm.

All orders are packed in an insulated box with ice bricks then delivered in Meat at Billy’s refrigerated van. Our delivery drivers will text you to advise they have delivered your order if you are not home.


How is my order delivered?

Once your order is prepared, it is packed in a polybox with ice packs, sealed and then transported in a refrigerated vehicle which is registered with Food Safe Queensland. This ensures the goods are delivered to you meeting national food safety standards. Meat at Billy’s insulated polyboxes are a temporary cold-store solution only. Ideally your order should be transferred to a refrigerator or freezer as soon as possible and within two hours of delivery.


What happens if I’m not home when my delivery arrives?

Ideally the order should be placed in the fridge immediately upon receiving. Therefore it is best to have the order delivered to an address where someone will be available to receive it. Deliveries can be made to a place of work. If a work place address is listed as the delivery address then we will assume that accepting personal deliveries is within the company’s rules and regulations.

We realise that certain situations are unavoidable and sometimes, you may not be available to receive your order. Each order is packed in an insulated polybox with ice and this will keep your order at a suitable temperature for up to 2 hours (depending on the weather).

If nobody is available to take collection of the order, we will do our best to contact you on the number you provide us to discuss a suitable place for us to leave your order. If instructed, we can leave your order with a concierge, at reception or any place designated by you. Once your order has been delivered, it is no longer the responsibility of Meat at Billy’s. All risk of loss or damage to the goods passes to you once we have handed over the goods.


Will you recycle my polybox?

Absolutely. If you wish to have us recycle your polybox, please leave it out for collection on your next scheduled home delivery. We will happily recycle and reuse all polyboxes that are clean and in useable condition.


There was a problem with my delivery but I didn’t realise until after the driver left. What do I do?

If you find there is an issue with your order once you’ve received it, please contact us within 24 hours of delivery either via email or PH 3366 2912 (please choose Menu Option #3 Online Orders & Home Delivery).

What makes your butcher different?

Meat at Billy’s is one of the few independent butchers left in Brisbane. Our customers choose us as quality meat, awesome customer service and huge variety are our top priorities.

Our steaks are second to none. We have a reputation for our great Wagyu beef,  Angus steaks and provide Certified Black Angus Beef in grain-finish or pure grass-fed options. We also dry age in-house and release special ‘small batch’ products on a regular basis.

We’re strong advocates of supporting local. We source Queensland produce as much as we can and many of our products come from local farms and businesses local to our area.

We specialise in modern butchering as well as keeping traditional butchery alive. We employ several ex-chefs and as a result, have many dedicated home cooks from all over Brisbane, searching us out to track down those lesser-known cuts of meat. All of our butchers love to cook and more importantly, love to EAT!

We’ve been called the ‘candy store’ of butcher shops due to our eye-catching displays and selection of ready-made options for busy peopleThese are products that you simply take home and pop straight into the oven or BBQ, no extra work required. Creamy Chicken & Pumpkin ParcelsHickory Beef & Vegetable KebabsMini Prosciutto Wrapped Lamb Roasts and Lemon & Garlic Chicken Roasters are just some of our top sellers.

Meat at Billy’s is more than just a butcher shop. With two great locations – Ashgrove and Rosalie, we have great deli sections where you can find anything from marinades, sauces and vinegar to couscous, preserved lemons, chipotle peppers and Australian cultured butter.


Do you sell free-range meat?

YES! Nearly all of our produce is free range, with everything clearly labelled where possible. If you are unsure, please ask.


What do you have on offer?

The best quality steaks, beef, chicken, lamb, pork & veal we can source. Chorizo (three different types), whole lambs, suckling pigs & pigs for spits, Maremma free range duck, Australian Black Wagyu, Ryukyu Berkshire Cross Pork, Brisbane Valley Quail and more.

We also offer fresh cuts that often aren’t available from other butchers. View our catalogue for more information of our range of products.


What can I cook with the meat I buy? Do you have any recipes?

We sure do! Read our blog for some of our recipe ideas. Most of our ‘ready to cook’ products come with basic cooking instructions also. If there’s anything you need to know you can always contact your amazing butcher in Brisbane:

PH 07 3366 2912 or email
