Prime grade Prime Rib at Costco?

Has anyone seen prime grade prime rib (preferably bone-in) at Costco recently? I checked N. San Jose and Mountain View, but didn't see any. Thanks.

  1. I didn't see it at the Hayward Costco when I went a couple of days ago. Don't they usually have it after Thanksgiving and before Christmas?

    1. On east coast only whole rib eye, thus no bones. l would buy bone-in in a heartbeat as well.

      1. I called Costco in San Francisco on November 3 - they had a boneless prime rib roast - prime grade. I wanted bone-in.

          The SF Costco must have sold out because I just called and they don't have any prime grade (not even the boneless roast).

        2. I would call and ask (1) if/when they're going to be stocking them this year, and (2) if you can order one.

            I tried doing that at several different Costco locations, but the responses have been that they don't know when it's coming in and you can't order it (because they don't know if/when they will get it). If you have information to the contrary regarding ordering it, please share!

              LOL. Oh well, worth a try. I've usually found that if you ask, they'll look in their computer and see if other stores have something that particular store doesn't have in stock, which saves a lot of driving/calling around. I don't know if that works for meat and produce, though.

          2. In case anyone is looking, the Redwood City Costco currently has prime grade prime rib roast, both boneless and bone-in.
