        There is for groceries. It has a fairly comprehensive selection but the shipping costs can add up.


          1. re: tomby

            This place sells kosher meat online, it's pretty good in my experience:


              1. re: tomby

                I've ordered from a lot of providers. For meat nobody I've tried beats Peter at for quality, selection and price. They also know how to package your precious cargo so it arrives frozen. If price is no object then talk to the folks at Fischer Bros & Leslie ( Their meat is superb and they have some cuts that many others don't carry. Both are glatt kosher. Not everyone is so great. In their early days I had a poor experience with Aviglatt when the meat didn't arrive frozen as no attempt was made to keep it frozen. I assume they are better now.

                1. re: Kosher Carnivore

                  Avi Glatt has improved. There is also Glatt on Demand ( I have ordered from both.

                  1. re: Dovid

                    That is good to hear. I'm going to give Golden West Glatt a try and will post about the experience.

                    1. re: Dovid

                      we used aviglatt and were quite pleased. would recommend.

                    2. re: Kosher Carnivore

                      Griller's Pride has some great product (including some unique cured South African specialty items) and Peter (who is South African) is a really nice guy.

                  2. re: mrdhammer

                    I tried an order from GoldenWest Glatt last week. Their shipping and packaging is the best I've seen so far and the shipping was the least expensive. Their staff were very responsive and professional. All purchases arrived frozen solid and clearly marked. The meat looks comparable to that from Grillers Pride. I'll post again after I defrost and eat some of their product.

                    1. re: Kosher Carnivore

                      They only sell one type of cut per case. Do you know of any that combines a few different cuts in a master case. I would think that it would be better as you get more variety. Also maybe shipping would be less as well.

                      1. re: p.stone

                        I agree entirely. The lack of flexibility with GoldenWest is a problem. OTOH, they don't mark up their freight charges. They are the lowest I've seen for shipping. I've tried many providers and IMO, if you consider service, cost, and flexibility, then Grillers Pride ( is currently the best.

                        1. re: Kosher Carnivore

                          Cooked up some GoldenWest ribeyes last night and they were excellent.

                          1. re: Kosher Carnivore

                            Do you know where they ship to? I sent them an e mail on Friday, but I have yet to hear back. How much does shipping add per pound?

                            1. re: njkosher

                              They added the least markup to the shipping charges of any internet kosher meat provider I have used. It added less than a $/pound to the meat. I used the ground shipping option and the freezing method and packaging they used allowed the meat to arrive frozen solid. They are located in Commerce, Colorado and they shipped to my location in Kentucky. Definitely worth a try.

                              1. re: Kosher Carnivore

                                Is GoldenWest still in business? Website does not work & I cannot locate it anywhere on the web... I'm looking for kosher food delivery to Central Florida.

                                Thanks for the help!

                                  They changed their website address from
                                  Very good products last 2 times I've ordered and still the best packaging of an online meat provider I've encountered.

                                  1. re: Kosher Carnivore

                                    Very much still in business at I second Kosher Carnivore's recommendations. Their meat is the best I've ever had outside of a high end kosher restaurant and it comes well-packaged and rock solid even after traveling by Fed Ex all the way from Colorado.

                                    For a while their shipping was a flat $9.95 per order but more recently it has been $19.95 per order. Their prices have also gone up a bit. My impression is that they used to be about the same as the local butcher or even a little lower but now they are a little bit higher. Having said that, their meat is still far superior and we'll continue to order from them but with an eye on the prices.

                                    1. re: ravchaz

                                      I was thinking of sending some steaks as a hostess present. But All the links I've tried for Golden West seem to be down. I'm going to use Griller's Pride.

                                      1. re: AdinaA

                                        Sorry, I read Golden West went out of business... I recently ordered ground bison and ground beef from KosherExpress ( for my first order. They have a full selection of meats and the meat was delicious! Further, the ordering process was easy, the meat arrived fully frozen and the shipping cost is reasonable for us on the West Coast, as they are located in Denver, CO. And today I got a $10 "thank you" coupon for being a new customer!

                                        Others on this site also recommend Grillers Pride ( based in Atlanta, but I have never ordered from there. Although I do understand they can be quite expensive, but carry a larger variety of high end cuts and more unusual products.

                                        Good luck with your search- I think sending steaks as a hostess gift is a great idea! Mind if I steal it? : D

                                        1. re: SchoolNurse39

                                          Not at all. I like to bring or send food or wine. Something the hostess can use, or might not be extravagant enough to buy (like upscale steak), or that will save her labor (like handing the steak over to her husband to grill for a summer Shabbat).

                                          1. re: SchoolNurse39

                                            Griller's Pride is great (even if shipping is a little expensive).

            1. starting Monday will start shipping over 15,000 kosher items worldwide. Free shipping to NYC and vicinity. see my reply to post .

              I tried to to post it by itself but for some reason the post was removed - no explanation given - just removed. You would think that the opening of a site that ships 15,000 kosher items worldwide would be of interested to the kosher consumer - especially to those outside of the major jewish centers. Go figure.

                My daughter will be starting Stern this Wednesday. We were tired tonight and decided instead of going shopping at Brachs and shlepping the food/kitcen items to Stern we decided to sit down and try out "". Considering that shipping will be free (free NYC delivery for over $50) I found the prices to be quite reasonable. Certainly cheaper than any form of Manhattan purchase options. I have not executed the order yet and have no idea if there will be any problems, like delivery to a college dorm. The web site is quite good. Some items have incomplete info, like package size showing 0oz, but after sorting by price and looking at adjacent items and prices one can figure out what you will be getting. Most items are in place, there were some minor ommissions, like no Onion Powder, but in general not bad at all. I sure wish them luck, so far it looks real good. I may even use them to send food to my mother in Brooklyn.

                1. re: MartyB

                  Have found them to have an almost nonexistent selection.
