Allen Brothers are perhaps most famous for their supply of Wagyu Kobe-style beef that is often difficult to find in the United States. Kobe beef is harvested from Wagyu cattle raised in the Kobe region of Japan. Only Wagyu beef raised in that region can be called Kobe.
Wagyu or Kobe-style beef, the kind you'll find available from this industry leader, is harvested from the same world-renowned cattle raised by the finest Wagyu cattle ranchers outside of Japan that raise the cattle in the same Kobe fashion. That means that the meat you'll get has the same world-famous velvet-smooth texture and marbling as Kobe. Allen Brothers' Wagyu beef is available in in a wide variety of cuts:

Allen Brothers Review
My reviews are based on my entire customer experience. A "thumbs up" means I found enough value in the product to say I would order it again, and a "thumbs down" could mean it was a good product, but I would not buy it again at the price I paid for it. This is how I believe I can show you the best value for your money.

Allen Bro. has a long history of providing top quality meat. They were first founded in 1893 in the Southside of Chicago and they have been there ever since.
Family owned from the beginning, the current president of the company is the fourth generation of the family to run the company.
With their quality selections, Allen Bros. has helped to support the reputations of some of the finest steakhouses in the world. Chances are, if you've heard of a steakhouse good enough to cultivate a national reputation, it is very likely they get its steaks from from this well known suppler.
Their partners include Morton's The Steak House, Lawry's The Prime Rib, Gene and Georgetti, Delmonico's Steak House and Abacus Restaurant.
The meat you'll find at Allen Brothers is always USDA Prime or USDA Choice. In fact, this supplier is known for its reliable supply of USDA Prime which is difficult for other beef sellers to obtain. Their USDA Choice is the second-highest quality available in the United States today.
Cuts are available wet-aged or dry-aged. Wet-aged meat is put into vacuum-sealed bags and placed in Allen Brothers' specially designed climate-controlled refrigerator. As the meat ages, enzymes break down the meat's complex proteins, tenderize it and give it a unique wet-aged flavor.
A wide variety of USDA Prime cuts are available wet-aged including filet mignon, strip steaks, rib eyes, porterhouse and T-bone, ribs and skirt steak. Each style is available in a variety of cuts and preparations. Allen Brothers also offers wet-aged specialties, like bacon-wrapped filet mignon, tenderloin steak tips and medallions, beef brisket and London broil.

Update! Take a look at this bad boy that showed up on my door step today. I picked up two, plus some prime dry-aged NY strips and Ribeyes. Notice I said Prime and not Choice. That is the top 3% of all meat produced in the country, and then this one is dry-aged. It's about two feet long too. You are going to want to come back and see what I do with this! I love my job. =)
The label on my box of Ribeyes and NY Strips clearly indicates Prime Beef.
I receive (4) Prime Ribeyes and (4) Prime NY Strips Steaks Free from their email offer.
Of course, (8) Free Prime Steaks is an automatic good value.
I say all the time it's a great idea to subscribe to the email specials of Allen Bros. This week they made me an offer I couldn't refuse. I received (4) free prime Ribeyes and (4) Free prime NY strips with any order over $125. Since I was already playing with house money, I went large. I purchased two 34 oz. long-bone Ribeyes for $159, or $79.50 each. Not only are these USDA steaks prime, they were also dry-aged.
I'll start with my free Ribeyes. Had I paid for them, I would have been very disappointed. They actually had more flavor as next day's left-over than they did on the night I grilled them. But I noticed on the label, it says "ribeye ends." I would venture to guess this is a leftover cut of steak used for promotion. I found them to be too thin to provide significant flavor, and they broke up on the grill. However, they were still a good value being free.
The Free NY Strip steaks were another story. I can tell you right now, you leave this video and go to Allen Brothers and buy any prime, dry-aged NY strip steaks, you will not be disappointed, and I will be offended. Even my near-vegetarian, low-carb, low fat eating wife and daughters managed to finish theirs well before I finished mine. As a chef, I can promise you there is not a much better thing than to watch customers, or people you care for, scarf down food like cave people. And all I did was add a little seasoning and grill each side on a hot BBQ. Allen Brothers gourmet high-quality products did the rest. And it was free!

The Ribeyes get a Thumbs Up only because they were free. They were not too good.
However, the NY Strips were "melt in your mouth" amazing!

Allen Brothers Steaks Review by Chef Piquanti
Allen Brothers are also well known for their dry-aged meat.
Each cut is aged in their specially designed climate-controlled refrigerator until it develops a firm crust.
When the aging process is complete, the crust is removed. The meat underneath is delicately tender and flavored by the dry-aging process.
There are many dry-aged USDA Prime cuts available including strip steak, rib eye, and porterhouse.
Top quality meat and a wide variety of cuts make the Allen Brothers the ideal place for meat lovers to shop. You won't find any discounts here. However, if you know your meat and you cook to impress, you can't do better.

But the best part of my Allen Brothers order was the USDA Prime, Dry-Aged, Long Bone Ribeyes. Do you think $80 is a lot to pay for a steak? I saw these steaks being served in a restaurant for $200 each! If you can cook them yourself, you can save $120. No doubt, they are the best of the best. While I wouldn't have them every Sunday, I do think you should try them, at least once in your life. If you are looking for a gift for your man, look no further than these amazing gourmet experience.
Most steaks are wet-aged, meaning they age in their packaging. Dry-Aging allows the water in the beef to evaporate, resulting in a noticeably strong beef flavor. The process requires perfect environmental conditions, which is what makes the steak cost more. But also, this is USDA Prime, which accounts for the top 3% of all beef produced in this country. Knowing that, $79.50 for a 32 ounce steak of this quality makes it a great value.
If these weren't the best steaks I have every had in my life, I wouldn't say it. In fact, there are other steaks reviews on this website were I paid $60 a steak and thought it wasn't worth $5. This one is truly a treat. My name is Chef Piquanti, and thank you for visiting my website.
