I just don't want anyone to expect one thing and get something else... I do like the chuck eye cut, though. If I want steak and don't want to spend much money, I'll almost always buy a chuck eye.
Gahhh, you're such a purist... for almost half the price, chuckeye IS close to the same quality when you balance out cost vs tenderness/texture, cook them right and its close enough.
Look at the pic R8ers posted, thats nice marbling, almost indistinguishable from a ribeye... and damn, wish my grocer cut them like that, those are some fatties.
