Might have to go although I typically find Safeway meat disappointing. The price is good so might grab one or two.

The ONLY Time I buy meat from Safeway is when the T.T. and rib roasts are under $4.00 per pound. And I marinade the crap out of them for 2-4 days. Either that or I grind it for sausage or burger. I pretty much dislike Safeway, Lucky's, Nob hill, Whole Foods and any other chain grocery store.

I buy my meat from Costco in Concord or Diablo Food's in Lafayette or Lunardi's in Walnut Creek. I like Lunardi's best because they age their meat longer than anyone else around here, and they still have true Butchers cutting custom meats, but you pay for it big time.:emoji_thumbsup:

I buy mine at Costco business center in Hayward, Berkeley Bowl or Grocery Outlet when they have certain items in stock. I did go to Safeway to try and buy some tri-tip today. Found a 2 pack that looked ok, plus a few free items from coupons I was holding. 3 registers open with at least 14 people waiting, over 20 at the self service and a dozen registers closed. Screw that, not waiting 30 to 45 minutes to buy a few items.
