Costco or TJ's for Tenderloin

bakerboyz Dec 21, 2009 09:43 AM

Any opinions on which is better? Costco is selling Tenderloin steaks for aroung $10.50 per lb and TJ's has Tenderloin Steaks for $9.99 and $14.99 for Angus.

    I saw them at Costco for under 10 pp. They're the same so, I'd go where it's closest for you.

      Not one of your suggested options, but if nearby I recommend McKinnon's in Davis Square. Price is about $7pp. They will also prepare roasts, etc. on request.

          I have no experience specific to tenderloin, but on the whole, I think that Costco's meats are superior to TJ's.

            Depending on how much you're going to buy you might be better off buying the Costco whole tenderloin cryovac pack and cutting your own.

              I agree with GG that Costco meats are better overall. One exception: TJ's tri-tip steaks are one of the most flavorful cuts we've ever had, and highly recommended.

              That said, if you find prime cuts at Costco they are also outstanding in general.
