One chain here, HEB, clearly indicates in its circulars and on labels that it's selling Select. Some people claim they have HEB's that sell Prime but none around me. Central Market, owned by HEB, sells Choice and Prime, clearly indicated in the butcher's cases. Kroger doesn't label Select but does indicate when it's selling a better grade such as choice, Certified Angus choice, Nolan Ryan All Natural, etc. Some Kroger Signature stores carry a little bit of Prime. FoodTown labels their beef 'Heavy,' but it's got very little marbling and it's very well trimmed. Still, I've found it's a little tastier than HEB's Select. WalMart beef must be a grade or two below Select
. As for the other chains I assume they're selling Select if they don't claim it's something better. I stick mainly to Sam's, Choice on sale at Kroger and an occasional splurge at Central Market or one of the independent butcher shops that carries Prime. Sam's beef is tastier than Kroger's Choice but doesn't have much selection with regard to cuts.
