L.E. Kincaid & Sons opened its doors in 1921 and has been a mainstay on the north side of Indianapolis for over nine decades. Started by L.E. Kincaid and passed through the generations to his grandson, David Rollins, it was sold to the Dugdale family in 2015. The Dugdale’s are not new to the meat business, having owned Dugdale Beef Co. since the 1970s. It was a natural transition for Kathy and Joe Dugdale having done business with Kincaid’s for years. Their sons Jonathan and Joseph MacKenzie have been working at Kincaid’s since they were in their teens and now run the day-to-day operations.
Kincaid’s is a full-service butcher and meat market. The new owners have modernized the Kincaid’s experience but what hasn’t changed is the exceptional customer service and old-school butcher shop feel. The updates you will find are brand new local products that are the best of the best curated from Jonathan and Joe Mac’s years of experience in the food industry. You’ll also find new Sunday hours to better serve your busy life.
Kincaid’s Meat Market is proud to serve multiple generations of Indianapolis families. Our customers know that they can expect the highest quality products from Kincaid’s and exceptional customer care that hasn’t changed over the years.
Meet Our Owners
Owner / Operator
Jonathan began his career at Kincaid’s working behind the meat counter right after graduating from North Central High School. An Indianapolis native, Jonathan’s passion for cooking and people makes him the perfect modern owner for Kincaid’s Meat Market. He learned everything he knows about the art form of cutting meat from his years of experience under GM Shawn Kelley. Jonathan’s favorite cut of meat is a prime bone-in rib eye that he prepares with just salt and pepper, on a grill and serves rare. He said the most common mistake people make when cooking meat is that they over cook it. When not at Kincaid’s, Jonathan enjoys golf, travel, hanging with his dogs, one named Porterhouse, and cooking for his wife Natasha and friends.
Owner / Operator
Joe Mac has worked at Kincaid’s since he was an 18-year-old senior at North Central High School. It’s been a dream of his to own Kincaid’s and now that the dream has come true, he still enjoys the same aspects of the business he’s loved all these years, the customers. He thinks people way over think cooking and is happy to tell them about his favorite cut of meat, a prime bone-in rib eye done on the grill over a low temperature until it reaches medium rare. He claims it can’t be done wrong. Joe Mac is a foodie who loves every aspect of the food industry. He recommends Chef Carl’s Trinity to all of his customers and has it on his kitchen table to use like salt at the home he shares with wife Christina.
