Hell Reggie, I'm probably hundreds of miles from anything resembling a Restaurant Depot. That was a mean thing to do....
I want an HEB too, so don't anyone go filming a stroll down their spice aisle.....
Do what I mean, not what I say.....

The restaurant depot is the bomb. I can't drive through the parking lot without it costing me $300.
The freakin' HEB is a tourist destination for me. It's like the Bass Pro Shop or Nebraska Furniture Mart of grocery stores. My favorite is the HEB+ in New Braunfels. The Dangler's load the family truckster with the giant marine cooler and head to New Braunfels on an annual migration. Fill up the cooler with all of the good shit we can't get in Kansas to take home. Then we drive over to Gruene for beers and tunes.

Jetro (which became Restaurant Depot) is an awesome thing. The one here in Chicago on Division & Halsted does close to half a million dollars a DAY in business.
For those who don't know, Restaurant Depot is like Costco or Sam's Club but for restaurants. So when you buy canned green beans at Costco there are 12 fourteen point five ounce cans per pack, but at Restaurant Depot that case is 6 ten pound cans of green beans. The up scale is way real. It's a commercial level food service Costco where you buy 30lbs of skirt steak for $6 a pound, spend the time necessary to trim it out, then grill it and serve the Friday night fajita crowd.
For hot sauce makers Restaurant Depot is a gem. All of you DIY hot sauce makers should have a (free) membership at RD if you have one near - all you have to do is show them your business license and they give you a card. Great and consistent supply of the stuff you make sauce with, at a fraction of the retail price.

I don't believe the one here carries wine. Haven't looked for any but didn't notice any. Probably due to some odd alcohol laws here I presume.
Spot on with your descriptions of the place. Could've done an hour vid and not touched it all. This was just on a whim. And you mention meat - great goodness! One whole side of the store is a walk-in freezer/cooler. Hard to stay in there long.... Did score some really good beef mark-downs last week and made gobs of jerky. It's only been open here for perhaps six-months but they've gotten a few $ from me.

Not sure if it's the same company because we have a Jetro here.
