    Same experience at the Costco locations I frequent (Mt Prospect & Schaumburg), never have seen skirt steaks.


    I've only seen inner skirt but never outer. This is at Lincoln Park and Niles locations.

    Stopped at Joseph's Finest Meats yesterday for July 4 Dry aged Rib Eye, among other things.
    While Bob was cutting my steaks, the counter man showed me some Prime 'Outer' shirt. Looked just fabulous! About $18/#.

    Costco in Glenview sells pre-packaged marinated ( no acid) skirt steaks for 6.99 lb. It looks like inner skirt to me. I haven't tried it yet.

    Since this came up at the LTH North lunch, I figure I might mention it here. At the Marianos in Vernon Hills, they sell outside skirt for 9.99/lb which seems low for this area where most places either dont have outside or they charge 15/lb+. Marianos also sells inside skirt for 11.99/lb. It seems to me that at least they must have the prices reversed, but the butcher says it is right and is because "we buy so much of it we get a good price." Is this the same at other marianos, or are the Vernon Hills butchers screwing up?

    Our Mariano's (Ashland and Webster) has mostly inner skirt on display. If you ask for outer, they might have it, and last time they sold it to me at the same price as the inner. The butcher told me that almost all of it gets sold to the employees so they don't usually put it out.

    Jerry's Quality Meats in Skokie is the reincarnated E&M Meats, a few of the same faces still work there. They have the BEST skirt steaks. Two sizes "dinner" and "petite". I usually splurge for the dinner ones, pricey for sure but absolutely delicious.

    I forgot to give a shout-out to Jerry's who deserves all the gratitude in the world for continuing to carry my go-to kishke. I was devastated when first elegance in meats closed, used to trek to Northbrook for my holiday kishke, and than finally, was euphoric when I found out Jerry's would carry it. I will def. stop in to spend some of our budget on skirt steaks if they are the quality I recall from my childhood.
