This promotion is all over Vegas, not sure if its elsewhere.
Big tent in the parking lot of a mall and extensive radio advertising.
I bit a few weeks ago and went to see what their gimmick is. As expected, its a come on to buy a much bigger package. You can get the ribeyes for $25 or buy a larger package deal for $150 and get the ribeyes free. I whipped out my handy phone calculator and figured a similar package from Omaha Steaks would cost me much more so I bought the $150 deal.
The ribeyes are very small, when cooked they resemble a bunch of steakums. 20 for $25 is not bargain.
In the deal, I got 12 hamburgers- really juicy but full of fat. What a mess they leave in the pan.
Two outstanding Porterhouse steaks, six mensa mensa Delmonico steaks, four 12 ounce Tbones and six NY Strip steaks. All are pretty good.
My package also included what they called strip loin steaks and boneless fillets, but I'd call them chuck steaks. Tough, grisly and not very flavorful.
All in all, it was okay, I might buy the package for a Memorial Day BBQ if lots of alcohol was involved, but for eating at home I will pass and recommend you do as well.
Sounds like the guys who used to drive around the neighborhood in their trucks with a freezer on the back selling "extra" meat. Usually was poor quality.
Thanks for the review!
It's legit, in that they are set up for weeks on end, but the meat doesn't stand up to Omaha Steaks or a decent butcher.
Companies name is Colorado Choice, based out of Florida.
I bought a freezer chest to take advantage of bulk buys at BJs and my sister bought a half a side of beef one time. It was over $200 and didn't seem like that great a deal. Her husband got a large chunk of venison from a friend and that worked out better.
On the down side, my Cousin Tommy lived in the middle of nowhere and had a walk in freezer. Super Storm Sandy came along and he lost thousands of dollars worth of food.

As PT Barnum would say, "There's a sucker born every minute."
The biggest problem is that meat is all CAFO.
Try John Mull's or The Butcher Block next time. Get some good grass fed steaks and never look back.
