Try to clear your Joomla cache, it can help.

I restart again and that issue went away, i think it was was something to do with the template i am using,
the only issue i am having now is loading the shop itself.

If i press the shop link it loads the shop but i cannot view any items no matter what option i select.
/shop is empty
/men is where everything gets stored for some reason

You should remove the Joomla menu item link to men, it is certainly set to root category.

Your link to men is http://cmgmeats.com/index.php/men  other category links include /shop/ - eg http://cmgmeats.com/index.php/shop/meat

Check your Joomla menus - in Joomla. Menus/All Menu Items would be a start.

Search in your Joomla menu items.
You have a link with alias "men".
Remove it and all should work !
