Iowa Steak Company - no complaint they are good steaks

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
after reading all the negative reviews I was feeling buyers remorse, after buying meat from a door to door salesman.*kid*. and I read the reviews after purchasing a case. I tried the steak, I also had my brother in law try some not letting him know where it came from. he and I and my husband all admit. the steak is tender, has a good flavor, and taste good. there is no smell, if i can afford it in the future after my case is gone I will reorder. They are small and do shrink but we found to prevent shrinkage and so the meat is tender, cook on low ..do it slow and low and they are good steaks. I believe...

Iowa Steak Company - Terrible customer service / product

The worst meat company I have ever dealt with in my life! My husband has been in this business over ten years, even having owned his own company and I've never heard such bad reviews! Their meat is the lowest grade you can receive and tastes like poo! Their customer service is even worse. They came to pick up the truck when my husband quit working for them because of their terrible rap and shutting off his truck at 10:30 at night leaving him stranded two and a half hours out with a pregnant wife less than a month from delivery at home. James the manager at the okc office proceeded to yell and...

My husband was approached by a gentleman selling meat out of an Iowa Steak Company truck this winter. The gentleman compared his meat quality to Omaha, being an avid Omaha steak purchaser my husband was sold on his sales pitch. He bought a box full of meat. Every piece of it has a poor quality, tastes cheap and nasty!! I can't even believe they can sell this disgusting meat. I'm going to send the company an email to let them know how dissatisfied I am with their product....

Iowa Steak Company - Poor quality.

Old enough to know better.
I can write a summary of all the complaints as they pretty much all apply to my experience with this junk product. Its no good for the BBQ, its loaded with water or other substances to increase the weight and appearance and the flavor is awful. We're now trying it as stew meat, if that still not passes our taste test, it can be found in the dog's bowl.
I've not make an attempt for a refund due to reading the complaints and the lack of a responds for this company, my time is worth more than the amount of the refund ....

Per your cancellation notice, you are in default and owe me an immediate refund of $329.00. I faxed in my notice of cancellation the day after the purchase, and was confirmed received by IA Steaks per Mariah.
I told Mariah that the meat could be picked up on August 28 between 11:30 and 3:30 or after 7 pm or August 29 between 12 and 3:15 pm.
On September 12, I spoke with the Manager Tracy and said that someone could pick up the meat September 13 between 1:30 and 3:15. He assured me someone would be there to pick up the meat. I laid on the couch in the front room waiting and no one arrived....

This even 2 men from iowa steak knocked on the door and i aggreed to look at what they were selling. All of they had looked great. I elected to buy the 1 box of steak for 100 bucks. These guys are high pressure sales. He was origionally trying to pimp a whole package for 379 dollars. 30 minutes ago i cooked 2 of the ribeyes. When they are in the package the steaks look nice but when I thawed them and took them out of the package, I noticed several things that I was uneasy about. First off, there was a lot of really hard yellow fat or maybe it was gristle. When i say yellow, i mean banana yellow....

We purchased the meats from one of their door to door trucks. We bought 3 boxes of steaks for $100
in February of 2013. We have prepared two meals with the product, and both times the meat tastes funny and is tough as a board. Sending a complaint to them provided no response. Please be forwarned...the meat is horrible!!!...

Came home today from the grocery store and this big red pickup truck with Iowa plates came driving up my street the wrong way and parked right in front of me. This guy got out and came up to my truck and knocked on my window while I was on the phone with my dad. He stood outside in the freezing cold for ten minutes waiting for me to end my call. He was standing on my porch with a big box. He kept telling me that he was the manager of the Iowa steak company and he could give me this great deal on all of these great steaks. He opened all of the boxes on my porch and showed me all of these steaks....

Iowa Steak Company - Minnesota, Burnsville - Rotten Meat

I worked for Jay, the main crook. The leader of the other crooks. They are in fact travelers and will swindle every red penny they can manipulate out of you. The leader teaches prospects how to be crafty and talk like a snake. He reminds me of a carny at a fair, a fast talker who will try to attack any weakness he can find on you. They let the steaks go for $100 to employees and the rip off begins. If Jay feels he cant control his prospects he will cut the head off the snake. The meat is thawed, refrozen, wet, refrozen. They put dry ice in the trucks and still sell the meat. I finally cooked the...

One of these trucks comes through my neighborhood often. They have stopped at my house before but I always refused. They stopped again just before Christmas and caught me in a moment of weakness. I found myself being talked into 2 boxes of seafood for $50.00. I was told the product was guaranteed and if I was not satisfied it would be replaced. When I took the seafood out of the boxes to put in my freezer, I started to realize that it would have cost a lot less at the grocery store, but I was willing to overlook that for quality. I started to thaw out the shrimp and noticed it had a strong fishy...

These flim-flam artists knocked on the door with a sob story about needing to get home for the w/e. Boo hoo hoo. To empty their truck so that they could get home, they would sell the meat at a 67% discount. My wife and in-laws were suckers!!!

They payed $6.50/lb; I can beat that at Kroger any day, all day long.

The internet is full of complaints on them, their practices and their products. Don't be a sucker!...

I bought the steak package from a salesman who told me these steaks would melt in my mouth and would have a freezer life of 1 year. I purchased these steaks 12/2010. These are the worst steaks I have ever tasted! They are tough as shoe leather! Within 1 month of purchase, I called their office in Akron because several (6) of the ribeye steaks were black. I ask them to replace them. They asked how I paid and that a salesman would be in touch with me to replace them. Famous last words!!! I have not heard from anyone and I have called them more than 3 times! Do not buy from these people as they are...

This meat truck pulled up to me at a gas station saying they had great steak for really good prices. I told them I was not interested because I do not cook very often but then they said they had $3 fillet's. I took a look and he tried selling me a case of like 50 steaks. I declined and he asked if I'd buy 10 steaks for $30. I reluctantly agreed. He manually wrote down my credit card info and had me sign it. He didn't mention that afterwards he added on a 10% tip and didnt authorize that with me. He also did not give me a receipt. His name is Ryan and he wrote his number as 253-355-8859....

I really should have known better, but we were trying to get ready for the 4th of JULY. I thought I'd help out my neighbor and paid $625.00 for the worst meat we had ever tasted. It tasted OLD. I feel like such a fool. I guess I needed to lose that money, 'cause I'll sure know better if they have the nerve to come back here again. This is not ending here...I'm disabled and I could really use that money....

I recently bought one of the steak packages from Iowa Steak Company and found out about their 3-day cancellation policy. So, within 24 hours, I told them that I had been running the numbers and didn't think that I was getting as good of a deal as they were trying to say that I was, so I asked them to come back and get it. Well, they said that the money had already been withdrawn from my account, but it would be refunded within a few days. Well, it's been over a week and no activity... I called customer service and they said that nothing had ever been recorded about me cancelling the order...

I bought assorted steaks from Iowa Steak Co and would never again! The rib-eyes were not only tough, but tasted like a weird bologna. The strips were tough as nails--hardly, if at all edible. I called and left a message and did not get a returned phone call. I called days later and left another message--still no one called back. I called today and was passed on to a man (boss or manager?) who said he had no record of my calling before and that I should have called sooner. Keep in mind, I am well within my year of purchase. Supposedly, someone--whose only job is to exchange steaks, is going to call...
