Omaha Steaks; a good deal??

We recently gave someone Omaha steaks as b'day gift. I just got an e-mail giving us 50% off on everything, including shipping, Should we?

  1. if price is your only concern then yes...
    i stopped using omaha...
    there are much much better steaks out there...
    personally i use stockyards in chicago..
    there are plenty of posts/reviews on CH and online...

    1. No

      My FIL ordered from them and I was very unimpressed. Tough and flavourless.


      1. Thanks, folks, That's exactly what I wanted to know.

        2. No stay away from them like the plague. My mother got a great "deal" offered to her for $50 and took it. The steaks were awful, the hamburgers decent and the hot dogs we've yet to try since we don't typically eat hot dogs.

          Omaha Steaks called to follow up with my mother on how she liked the products and she was brutally honest and told them they were not very good. They professed great surprise and said she was the first person that had ever said the products weren't good. Two years later they're still trying to sell her more product and she's still refusing it.

          Don't do it. Your tastebuds will thank you.
