Our “Name” came from Mario’s Grandfather who was left on a doorstep of an orphanage in Italy. He was given that name because it means “Ghost”. Mario has 3 brothers and one sister that actively are carrying on the name through grandchildren here in the U.S.

“Louis, thank you for all your efforts! The Wagyu Brisket was the most successful cooking effort of the summer in large due to your help. Fed over 15 people on a 10lb. brisket and everyone crowed the “wonderfulness” of the meat. It’s nice to know the Paradise Meat Locker is truly a full service purveyor of the finest meats!”
“Absolutely hands down the most delicious pork, which requires little to almost zero seasoning. I will be ordering from your company moving forward, as it’s worth the price of delivery!”

“Shiner Half Moon Cookoff, 96 teams with some of the top cooks in the state. We were stoked to win 2nd place using brisket from you guys! Thanks for the time you spent visiting with us and ensuring we were getting a quality product. We have cooked many briskets and won a lot of top 5 calls in the past two years, yet that 20 pound wagyu has to be the best brisket we have ever cooked! Thanks again!”
Kelly Curtis, Pitmaster, Panther Creek Cookers
“The beef short ribs were unbelievable!Thanks for your great meat!”
“Mario Fantasma took over Paradise Locker Meats in 1995 and transformed it into an award-winning pig processing empire! It’s only about a half-hour drive out of KC to visit the retail store located at the facility and we promise it’ll be worth it once you feast your eyes on those endless meat cases. You’ll find every cut of pork you can dream up, plus a few you probably didn’t know existed. Oh, and there’s an entire cooler devoted to bacon!”
“I grew up in an old German region of Wisconsin and been in Missouri over 40 years. Never thought I’d taste a ring bologna this good or this authentic again. I’m happy!”
