About Us

Our founder, Pete, was 17 when he got into this business. Starting as a fishmonger at Burhops Seafood, he worked his way through every imaginable position you can have in the industry before founding Chicago Game & Gourmet in 1996.  If you see something on our website, it’s because we stand by it and serve it in our own home. The whole point of Chicago Game and Gourmet is to share the unbelievably delicious, sometimes rare ingredients and products we’ve come to love so you can share them with your loved ones.

Our unwavering commitment centers around delivering nothing less than the finest quality game meats. This commitment extends not only to the taste and quality, but to the safe and efficient journey from our hands to yours.

Shipping game meat might seem like a bold move, but we've taken the time to make it just right. Each order we get is handled with care, packed using dry ice and insulation, all done by our skilled team.

We’re always happy to have a chat on the phone about what you’re looking for, or answer questions you may have. And if you’re up for a face to face conversation, we always welcome guests at our shop located at 700 W. Root St. in Chicago.
