frequently asked questions

Q: Who are you and what do you do?

A: We are a locally owned and operated venture. We offer exclusively U.S.D.A. Prime Beef at the Lewis Jones Food Market, located at 1359 13th Street in Columbus, Georgia.

Q: Is U.S.D.A. Prime Beef different than beef I find in my Columbus area supermarkets and butcher shops?

A: Absolutely! Only 2% of all beef is graded prime by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. ColumbusBeef.com has structured a supply line of U.S.D.A. Prime Beef directly from Buckhead Beef in Atlanta. We are the only retail source of true U.S.D.A. Prime Beef in Columbus, Georgia.

Although many words, like 'angus', 'choice' and 'premium' are commonly used by local supermarkets and butcher shops, there is no substitute for the excellence of U.S.D.A. Prime Beef. Another misleading label by some supermarkets and butcher shops is the phrase 'Prime Cut'. Meat labeled 'Prime Cut' does not mean it is actually U.S.D.A. Prime Beef!

You'll only find U.S.D.A. Prime Beef in the world's finest steakhouses, like:

* Bones - Atlanta, GA

* Chops - Atlanta, GA

* Gibson's - Chicago, IL

* Chicago Chop House - Chicago, IL

* Nick & Sam's - Dallas, TX
