has anyone seen that tent on byrd drive that says 20 steaks for $20?
has anyone stopped to see what the catch is? is it for real? it sounds too good to be true. everytime i drive by i am going the other way, or in the wrong lane. i've wanted to stop and see what the catch is. has anyone stopped and talked to them?

...did have a friend make a purchase; hasn't cooked 'em up yet so can't pass judgment. Anyhow, the first thing that happens is that the salesman will try to talk you into a bigger and better deal (my friend opted for the $150.00 deal instead of the intended 20 for 20). If you look at the banner, you're not getting the branded 'Omaha Steaks', you're getting steaks from Omaha NE. It's a much classier act than the guy with the freezer in the back of a pick up saying his freezer is going bad and he's got to get rid of his stock; but, I've actually got some good meat by ordering from these 'little guys'. It's worth a $20 bet.

Supposed death in the family per guy at Best One tires. Supposed to come back around Thursday.
Steaks arent bad, but in the "big deal" for 169.oo, there are chopped steak aka hamburger which takes a bit of the "deal" away, but still a fairly decent price for the rest of the stuff you get. Probably wouldn't do it again, but it was handy for family in town for 6 days.

KEEP DRIVING! DO NOT STOP! I bought the 20 steaks for $20. Yes, they do try to talk you into these amazing package deals. I stuck with the cheap steaks. They were horrible. First of all, they are 4 oz, so basically the steaks are $4/lb, which is still a good deal....BUT...it's like they took various leftover pieces of steak and melded them together. The steaks fall apart when you pick them up, they are a funky color, and they taste HORRIBLE. I ended up throwing them out after 2 different attempts at making them. If you look at the ingredients, they aren't even pure meat (I don't remember, but I think they contained corn and stuff). And each 4 oz steak has over 700 calories in it.

Now, they do say there premium packages contain better quality meat, but I wouldn't risk it.

Man i wouldn't waste my time or money on their steaks ever if your a true steak lover! Just as AMY had said in her earlier post... Funky colors,bad taste even after mixing up my special marinade that i always use. I even dug through them all looking for the thickest, best looking steaks out of the whole batch and by the time i finished cooking them up, Hell their wasn't anything left of them. The damn things basically melted away and made a freakin mess of my grill. Just my opinion. Dogs even looked at me funny when i offered them up to them.

Buyer Beware! If you think youíll get something for nothing then go ahead and buy them
Save your money because you will get what you pay for and donít complain when you find out your just paid for meat your pet would probably not eat.
