Hey there folks,

What is the overall consensus of the quality of meat from Omaha?

The prices are a little high but usally they seem to throw in free stuff so that makes it a llittle more attractive.

For example, yesterday in the email I got from them they had 4 FILET MIGNONS for 21.99 but they threw in 6 burgers and a cutting board for free.

The total with shipping came to about 30.00, of which I will have 5 meals for my wife and I.

What has been your experience with them?

Thanks,
David

David, We had a topic titled "Omaha Steaks - are they Worth it" and another topic titled "Meat from a truck" a while back. Go to the search function at the top of the page and type in "Omaha Steaks". Scroll down towards the bottom of the page, and you'll see the topics. This may give you some insight.

David,

If at all possible, buy from a local butcher shop. The meat is as good or better, the prices are probably lower, and you support a local business.

If you don't like the food, have more wine

Paul,

Thanks for the reply.

The problem with that is (at least here locally) butcher shops are going the way of the 5 and Dime. :(

About the only butcher shops near me are all in major chain grocery stores.

I've made friends with a few of the butchers in a few different grocery stores. I've found that if you give them a few days for an order, they are more than willing to help out. And depending on the quantity I'm buying, sometimes I get a better price. You may want to give it a shot.

HTH.

Hey,
Check with the old neighborhood grocry stores. We still have a couple and they are usually willing to help you find that special order.
Always a fan of the little guy.

I prefer my meat from a local place called The Fresh Market. I do buy from a few of the local Italian markets here in tampa though... the meat has always been good.

Every once in a blue moon I order from Omaha steaks(Generally when I send gifts to clients). I have always been happy with them.

Thanks a lot Bob!
I do plan on sticking around quite a bit, I've only recently found this place, after I started my forum. It seems like there are some real BBQ pros here, and I'm glad I'll have a chance to pick everyones brain!
