Any retailers that supply t-bone steaks at a reasonable price as I have found that less retailers carry this- I use to be able to find a regular t-bone steak at Safeway but haven't seen it lately...any suggestions are welcome

  1. Just about any butcher shop carries them or will cut them for you. As to reasonable price? Try Beefway if you find local butchers are too expensive.

    1. I think I've seen some at Jackson's at 4th and Yew

      1. Don't buy 'em, but my go-to butcher shop is Windor Packing on Main @ King Edward.

        Like Piwakawaka said, Jackson's should have them too.

        What part of town are you looking for a butcher ?

          somewhere in East Van - I went to Beefway a while back and thought everything was very clean so I'll definitely check it out but any other recommendations for butchers in East Van would be much appreciated

            Columbus meats is usually pretty good.

              Any "real" butcher can cut you some T-bone. Many supermarkets get their meat trucked in already styro-packed.

              Beefway, Columbus, Cioffi would definitely have it in East Van (and North Bby).

          2. I've had success asking for special cuts from the butcher at Famous Foods. Perhaps it would be worth a phone call for your t-bones.

              Ah yes, Famous Foods. In my mind I think of that butcher as "Neil" (he looks like Neil Young) :-)
