Now that I've warmed you up in this Omaha Steaks Vs. ButcherBox review, it's time to sear your brains and get them to WELL-DONE in the next sections below.
Both Omaha Steaks and Butcher Box provide high-quality meat.
This is Grade A we're talking about here. High-quality beef is enough to get me excited!
But let's make one thing clear:there's a difference in quality.
Between both meat delivery services, only Butcher Box offers quality aligned with clean eating.
Now, what the HECK is clean eating?
If there's anything cleaner than organic, this is it.
It's not just grass-fed beef, free-range organic chicken, or heritage-breed pork. It's chemical, antibiotic, and hormone-free.
Like it was stripped clean and gone further than LEAN.
If you want top-tier and rich meaty flavor, Butcher Box screams this message. For this Omaha Steaks Vs. ButcherBox category, Butcher Box WINS.
If you're talking about a vast menu option, Omaha Steaks has an overwhelming number of meats: 11 cuts of steak, filet mignon, sirloin steaks, heritage breed pork, sole cod, mahi-mahi, snapper, bison, and so much more!
In comparison, Butcher Box offers more narrow and limited cuts of meat including Wild Alaskan salmon (here's how best to grill salmon).
But you feel less overwhelmed going through ButcherBox's selection of steaks, beef, chicken, and pork. All that high-quality meat makes it easier to choose and straightforward.

Omaha Steaks handpick, age, and trim every meat. Not to mention, all their beef is grass-fed too and aged for at least 21 days.
Impressive....But not as impressive in comparison to Butcher Box.
Butcher Box sources some of its meat from Australia while some from the U.S. However, Butcher Box STRICTLY considers the conditions of their hogs, beef, and cattle.
Their beef is ONLY grass-fed and their Berkshire, Duroc, and Chester white hogs are bedding in open bars.
You just can't argue with that clean meat. For this category of sourcing practices,ButcherBox WINS.
Both Butcher Box and Omaha Steaks use the flash-and-freeze technique to preserve all that wonderful, meaty flavor without issue.
Although, a clear difference between the two lies more in the type of packaging used.
Omaha's approach isstyrofoam while Butcher Box uses a more eco-friendly packaging - biodegradable & recyclable!
Personally, I prefer eco-friendly packaging so Butcher Box takes the lead here.
Omaha's is more of an all-you-can-eat meat buffet except online. Butcher Box has 5 package plans:
All of these boxes cost $129/month with the Custom box priced solely at $149/month.
Butcher Box does come out pricier with an average of $150/month for 9 to 11 lbs. of steak but when you factor in the delivery charges of Omaha Steaks, Butcher Box comes out on top with greater value.
Shipping policies and delivery services are important for any service.
Butcher Box offers free standard delivery around the U.S., sure. But Omaha's service expands even to Canada and Puerto Rico.
Shipping rates might rack up quite a bit though - between $18 to $50.
Omaha Steaks offers a 100% refund policy while Butcher Box does not.
All across the board, Butcher Box showed an average of 3 to 4 star reviews on all review platforms.
Omaha didn't do so well - 1.5 stars average on Yelp, 1.1 stars on Reseller Ratings, and 4.5 stars on Influenster.
Athough there were some complaints about processing and customer service in ButcherBox's case, it's still clear who wins this category.
Throughout the Omaha Steaks Vs. Butcher Box match up, Butcher Box came out as the better choice.
For one, you can't argue with ButcherBox's meat quality. It's sustainable, top-tier, and clearly shows high standards in both sourcing and nutritional information.
As far as prices go, Omaha Steaks does seem like the cheaper option, and if QUANTITY is enough to drive you home, that's one way of describing Omaha's great points.
Quality. Quality. Quality.
Every carnivore ormeat-lover/fanwill agree with one very crucial aspect when choosing meats: quality.
Whether that's a strip steak, sausage, or plain bacon, many are willing to pay higher prices if the quality can be trusted and if one can get that marble, juicy, rich meaty flavor.
Despite ButcherBox's seemingly higher prices, their sustainable practices, higher standards, and commitment to their products provide greater value overall in comparison to Omaha Steaks. Next: Learn how to grill the perfect steak!
