Omaha Steaks ???

Just curious, anyone ever take advantage of any coupons or special deals and actually try the Omaha Steaks. Would you recommend them or not, pro's or con's???

Thanks!!

I got some years ago...not worth imho. You can get prime beef in other places. Something about a rock hard frozen steak or burger that's hard to get excited about.

You did know that you're suppose to thaw them prior to eating, right? :biggrin:

I got some as a gift one time. No big deal. Nice thought from a bud. Find yourself a good butcher, You will be much more happy.

I did it once also. I'll take a rib eye from Costco any day of the week over theirs.

Never had the steaks but the thick styro coolers they come in are great for transporting or mailing frozen food.

That's because you forgot to put news paper in the bottom. #-o I get those coolers from the Doc office where the wife works. They work the nuts for drop offs.

I usually buy all my meat at Sam's and Costco, this was brought to me by the wifey, here's what you get:

4(5oz) filet Mignons; 4(5oz) top sirloins; 4(4oz) boneless pork chops; 2stuffed sole w/crabmeat & scallops;; 8 gourmet franks(hot dogs); 4 steak burgers(4oz); 10 portions potato au gratin; 6 additional steak burgers; 4 steak knives; cutting board; for $59.99

She just wanted to know what I thought, so I figured I would ask the experts.
