I was probably one of chef pepper's first customers. Before they had the physical stores and restaurants. Moped delivery of imported beef. I have been to Nellos but most of their meat is domestic. No thanks.
I remember back then the only restaurants with angus beef were David Crocketts, Train steakhouse, asadero argentino and antonios. At least that I knew of back in 98-99.
Now, I buy pretty much all my meat at nacional. Imported angus, skirts, ribeyes, small briskets, picanha, NY strips and ground beef. Not frozen.
They have butchers there that although a bit slow, get the job done. I have ordered up to 13 lb rib eye to smoke in my Bradley Smoker. Prefer that over individual frozen ribeyes from Chef Pepper.
I actually live 3 blocks from chef pepper and rarely go there now. Once in a while we order fajitas or lamb and thei hamburger buns are good.
Recently went to almacen unidos and it looks like they have some potential.
