Aged beef?

Where is the best place to get aged beef in Austin?

  1. OK, I'll bite. I assume you mean dry aged as opposed to wet aged. There is no "best place". Several places sell a couple cuts - mostly strip and ribeye (CM, Hole Foods, upscale HEB's in cryovac), but no one place outshines any other except in price.

    At one time Hole Foods downtown had a room dedicated to it, but I'm not so sure that still exists anymore. The prices were astronomical - not that many Hole Foods shoppers are wise to prices.


    1. I have gotten dry aged ribeyes at the Lakeline Farmer's Market from Winters Family Beef.

      I haven't been to the Farmers Market in a while so you might want to check their web site to see if they have a schedule etc.

      1. Winters Family Beef. Cedar Park Farmers Market nearly every Saturday and Mueller Farmers Market nearly every Sunday. Order online by Thursday/Friday and pick up at the market that weekend. You won't find better aged beef in Austin, anywhere.
