Anybody ever bought from these guys in the freezer truck before?

They're in my neighborhood right now. Seem to have good deals. Kinda fishy though.

I know that a lot of people have bought from vendors like this with good results, but to me there is something about buying meat off a truck...

Haven't bought off them, but if you are really after some good meat at a reasonable price. He slaughters the cow, cuts the meet to your specifications, and packages it for the freezer at $2.00 per pound (finished product). I just bought a 1/4 side of beef and got about 200 pounds of meat.

Here is a couple reviews from RipOff Report.

I wouldn't trust them. I can't even stand to buy meat from the grocery stores. I like to know the guys that cut my meat. Maybe a little more money but the steaks taste a whole lot better then anything that was flash frozen.
