Where do you buy your beef?

The discussion about Costco below made me think about this. There's no question Costco has great buys on very good (not great) beef especially, for me, the ribeye, which is a tasty cut in general. I also have had good luck with their tri-tip, which is fine for barbecuing with a spicy marinade. I saw someone on here had the good fortune to find hangar/onglet steaks there, but I've never seen them (not in Glendale or Van Nuys anyway).

But what about the really good stuff? I used to buy what I thought was wonderful prime porterhouse at Chalet Gourmet before it turned into a squeezed-down Bristol Farms. They don't seem to have the same steaks anymore. I tried the place on top of Beverly Glen but it didn't really impress me. Maybe I should try again. And there's a butcher in Bev Hills that supposedly supplies the restaurants. Should I go there? Inquiring carnivores want to know (with a special thanks to the makers of statin drugs)!
