Best beef jerky ever
I have eaten a lot of beef jerky in my time and this is by far the best I've ever had. The amount of flavor and unique taste makes this jerky well worth the price and the wait. Do not hesitate to buy some, you will not regret it.
Amana Response: Thank you so much, Noah! We appreciate your comments and will continue to make the best Amana Beef Jerky!

Best jerky ever - my kids beg me to order it - we first discovered it 20 years ago when we lived in Iowa - since then we have moved a couple more times and always have Amana delivered

awesome beef jerky!
This is by far the best beef jerky I have found in a long time. Wish it was a little thinner, but other than that - it's delicious!

Very Good Stuff
I just love the Jerky I get from Amana !!!
Matt B | 29 Jul 2021
Very, very tasty and good !!!

Still great jerky
I have been ordering jerky from Amana for a few years now and not sure if something changed or what but the jerky is thicker than what it used to be. I actually prefer the thinner strip meat jerky. The thicker is still really tasty, but for me the thinner pieces were the best. Still going to keep ordering it.
Amana Response: So glad you like our jerky! Each batch we make here at our smokehouse comes out a little different. If you prefer the thinner strips, note that to us when you order and we'll try to pick out thinner pieces for you.

Very tasty. Would prefer it be less greasy, but very very good.

Best Beef Jerky and Worth the Price!
This isn't the least expensive Beef Jerky I've ever purchased, but it is worth every penny! Best I've ever had, and I've tried many brands. This Amana Beef Jerky did not disappoint!
Richard M | 26 Jan 2021
Very very good.
John B | 31 Dec 2020
EXCELLENT IN ALL RESPECTS - WILL ORDER AGAIN - SOON

Best Beef Jerky
I'm not a big beef jerky eater, and I ordered this for my husband. I always "try" any jerky that he buys and hands down this is the best beef jerky out there! It isn't tough and has just the right amount of flavor. We both love this jerky and often fight over who gets the last piece. Sharing has now become an issue our house!
Candy H | 19 Dec 2020
It's the best tasting Jerky!
My husband loves your beef jerky and says he thinks it's better tasting than the Sturgis jerky that we used to buy! Says it has more flavor and the texture isn't stringy like other jerky's.
Lisa W | 10 Dec 2020
Everything we ordered was delicious.
JoAnn B | 7 Dec 2020
I have been purchasing various items from Amana for over 25 years, either in person or online. Never disappointed! But every Christmas I absolutely have to buy the beef jerky because my kids love it - and the 1/4 lb. packaging makes them great stocking stuffers!
Troy W | 30 Nov 2020
Pork Tenderloins 7oz.
Amazing, tender and flavorful. I know, I am from Iowa!
Troy W | 30 Nov 2020
Good jerky but I went to ingredients prior to purchasing and I do not believe nitrates/nitrites were listed so I did not think they were an ingredient. Wrong! When it arrived it was listed right there in plain English. Will not be purchasing jerky from you again. The Pork tenderloin are amazing and will be getting those again!
William K | 30 Nov 2020
We tried your beef jerky and it taste great. Great flavor and texture. Thank you.
Barry | 25 Nov 2020
Excellent Beef Jerky. Fresh, not salty. Would buy from again!!
Hugh T | 22 Nov 2020
Package came right on schedule. The beef jerky was great. We plan to order other products in the future.

Beef Jerky Review
An outstanding product. The spices are there, but not overwhelming. Product is sealed when it arrives, but will need to be refrigerated after opening - a good feature for travel in that, you are opening a smaller quantity, and could finish a package in a day. I will be re-ordering this one again.
Wilmer Smith | 19 Sep 2020
Best Jerky I have ever ever had. I am 77 years old and have been eating jerky almost all my life, I even make some of my own. Nothing can compare to this.. Thanks
Kurt H | 5 Aug 2020
This is an excellent beef jerky. Chewy, great consistency. Not too sugary. The only downside (which doesn't effect the product rating) is that there is not if any pepper on it. This is easily solved by adding it yourself. Just let bring the jerky to room temperature and add cracked pepper to each piece on a paper plate and put back into the package. Wow, now it's PERFECT!!!
Dennis R | 16 Jul 2020
Great service. Quality product!
I pass through Amana once or twice a year. The Meat Shop is a must stop each time. Their jerky is as good as it gets! All I bought was consumed very quickly, so I placed an online order. Quick and easy. The jerky comes vacuum sealed in individual packets (I bought bulk when in the store). It was fantastic!
Matthew J | 16 Jul 2020
Tracy M | 13 Jul 2020
This is the best jerky! Thank you for the quick delivery after placing an order!
Michael S | 25 Jun 2020
Amana Meats Jerky is the best. It's thinly sliced and full of flavor.
Rocky D. | 22 Jun 2020
I've bought plenty of Beef Jerky in my life,expensive jerky,jerky made by this cut of meat,jerky made for this person or that person...But Amana Meatshop & Smokehouse Beef Jerky puts these other places in the doghouse,when it comes to taste and the ingredients used,once I have my first piece I'm hooked,I can't put it down,the only way that happens is running out of them,and that's a real disappointment,having to eat my last piece...Amana keep up the good work and don't change a thing with them,unless by somehow making them better...thank you

Amana Beef Jerky
Is it from Heaven?, Taste like it is, But No, It's from Iowa! Always the Best! Have loved it for 20 years, Better true beef jerky taste then all the others!
Andy | 5 Jun 2020
Have ordered jerkey several times. It's great. I always get extra to give away to another jerky lover. Now I always get two pounds or more each order. Outstanding jerkey. Followed by great service.
William G | 27 May 2020
Ordered 4 lbs of the beef jerky and it is some of the best jerky I've had. I like how the bags are sized at 4oz and are resealable.
Deon | 21 May 2020
Amana Beef Jerky
Hands down the best beef jerky I've ever had. Large pieces with great flavor.
william | 15 May 2020
Beef jerky package was excellent and arrived quickly.
Margo A | 3 May 2020
Excellent beef jerky.
Joseph H | 31 Mar 2020
This is the best beef jerky for my enjoyment. I find it nearly addictive.
Mike G. | 20 Mar 2020
I have been to the Amana store and had some amazing jerky. The shipped item is also very good but would prefer it packaged in the larger style slabs. No complaints however.
Eric M | 9 Feb 2020
Excellent as always
The jerky is always delicious and arrives within 2-3 days of me ordering it. Would recommend this product to anyone who likes strip meat jerky. It has a great Smokey flavor with a hint of pepper.
Joseph H | 2 Feb 2020
Previously ordered beef jerky twice. Liked very much. Latest was disappointment. Changed recipe with overly amount of chili powder. Beef too moist. Not baked long enough. Will certainly continue to purchase Amana products, other than jerky.
Amana Response: Thank you for your feedback, Joe. I am sorry you found this in your latest order and we are perplexed. We have not changed our recipe at all and do not use any chili powder. Have you tried more than one package out of the order you just received? I will email you to get more specifics about your order.
Andrew | 13 Jan 2020
Have purchased beef jerky several times. Customer service is fantastic. Plus best jerky ever. I always order extra so to give a package to a relative or friend.
Larry M | 7 Jan 2020
Best Jerky around
We love this Jerky. After trying several local options, we come back here, because it's better.
OPAL R | 20 Dec 2019
Best Jerky in the U.S.A.
Love to receive your jerky. Giving as a gift, even better.
Nancy | 19 Dec 2019
Yum. While visiting my daughter in the area, we visited Amana. I purchased some beef jerky which I slowly ate while continuing on my road trip. After returning home, I ordered more beef jerky. I like that it is thinly sliced therefore I can cut into bite sized pieces. I will order more.
guy c. | 27 Nov 2019
its the best
David T. | 17 Nov 2019
Some of the best jerky I've ever had.
Kathryn O. | 5 Nov 2019
Great Beef Jerky
This is the best beef jerky, other than what I make when I have the time. Shipping was fast.
Melinda | 29 Oct 2019
This beef jerky is the best!! It is the first thing my military family members request for care packages. The quarter pound packaging is so convenient when trying to pack their boxes. They love this little taste of home!!
Gladys | 2 Oct 2019
I'm from Utah and went to Iowa for a visit with a friend. We went to Amana Colonies and was pleasantly surprised when we went into the Meat Shop and Smokehouse. They had jerky samples out and we tasted some. OMG! This is best beef jerky I've ever had!! We bought a pound and it was gone before we got back to Utah. I then ordered 2 pounds online and just can't get enough. I wish it wasn't so expensive, or I'd order more! You will NOT be disappointed!
Derek | 26 Sep 2019
This is top-notch jerky and I wish I could afford to buy it on a regular basis. There's no off-putting chemical flavors or weird pasty texture, just good chewy, beefy awesomeness!
robert c. | 26 Aug 2019
No problems. Excellent.
James Klein | 6 Apr 2019
I have had a lot of beef jerky from a lot of places. This is some of the best that I have ever had. Perfect flavor and taste. And very easy to order with quick delivery.
Susan | 23 Feb 2019
Best Beef Jerky Anywhere!
Prompt delivery, very friendly and helpful when I called, and to tell you the truth I wouldn't Buy beef jerky anywhere else! This place is the best, and their other products are just as awesome!
B.J. Slizewski | 7 Feb 2019
Very Good but $$$
This beef jerky is very good! Its on the drier side (but not too dry) which I like, but its thin enough its easy to eat. The salt and pepper ratio is about perfect. The quality of meat is great. It ranks in the top 5 of my favorite beef jerky's and I've tried around 100 different kinds. You can tell this does not come out a huge commercial kitchen like you get at most gas stations. Although I have found some good beef jerky at gas stations, its just not the big names everyone knows. Nothing is more disappointing then ordering jerky and when it arrives it looks the same as the gas station stuff, and yep tastes the same. Long story short, ordering beef jerky on the internet is an expensive endeavor and risky. But Amana's is one you will be happy with. But the price of $43 a pound with shipping puts it out of my price range to order.
Kim Potter | 31 Jan 2019
Great Beef Jerky!
I have been looking for somewhere I can my beef jerky, and now I've found it! The jerky came packaged in .25 lb packages, so I don't have to worry about the rest being open once I decide to open a pack. Turn-around from point of order to delivery was quick. The only problem I had (which was not Amana's fault) was that it was delivered to the wrong address. Thankfully my neighbor brought it over. Deliciousness!
Robert Mumma | 25 Jan 2019
Some of the best
Some of the best jerky around. Great price and super fast shipping. Will be a returning customer for sure
Mike Meier | 22 Oct 2018
We bought some jerky when we were in Amana Colonies a month ago. When we returned home we bought 2 lbs. for Christmas stocking stuffers for our sons. The jerky being thin sliced makes it easy to tear off a piece for chewing. Thanks. Mike Meier
Mike Buckland | 9 May 2018
Just got my order from Amana's, the trail mix is really good, but the Beef Jerky is some of the best I've eaten and I will be sharing my next order with my family & friends(maybe) and I was very surprise at how well it was package, great job there too!!!!!
Tom Dobelbower | 23 Mar 2018
Really great jerky
Lisa Archambeau | 17 Feb 2018
Love this jerky!
I bought this as an add on item with my first order and for the second order it was my main purchase. So flavorful! Will buy again.
Kimberly | 22 Jan 2018
This is probably my favorite beef jerky and I've tried plenty. Well done! Will absolutely purchase more!
Jean | 29 Sep 2017
Best jerky I have ever had. Bought it the first time when we were in Iowa. My family and friends all loved it. Ordered some a couple months ago. Will be ordering again for the holidays.
Amana Response: Thank you, Jean! We look forward to shipping more Amana Jerky for you!
James Dugas | 12 Sep 2017
Love the taste. Great service. I will be ordering again. Would have like it more if it did not have all the sugar because of my Atkins diet.
Sam Knotts | 27 Aug 2017
Did not understand your shipping process, no notification sent out. Jerky is pretty good thanks but a bit moist for my liking. I will order again.
Amana Response: We send out an automatic UPS shipping notification email with every order. So sorry you didn't receive it. Hope you are still enjoying the Amana Beef Jerky!
Richard Michel | 15 Jul 2017
absolutely some of the best jerky I've ever eaten.
cynthia edwards | 23 Jan 2017
Yum! Yum! Yummy as always. I can always count on a excellent product from Amana!
Harold Hanson | 23 Dec 2016

Susie Faitella | 27 Oct 2016
Best beef jerky
My family and I received your beef jerky as a gift from a friend. We were delighted! This is absolutely the BEST jerky. I plan to purchase some as Christmas gifts this year. Yum!!
Jim Dumontier | 19 Oct 2016
The Very Best Beef Jerky
Like many other people, I have had a lot of beef jerky in my time. None of it even comes close to Amana's. Nice work folks, keep it coming.
Amana Response: Thank you, Jim! Yes, we will keep making our Amana Beef Jerky.
jeffrey fegal | 21 Jul 2016
Very good, will buy more.
I enjoyed the product, however, one 1/4 pound package was very salty.
Gonzo | 27 Jun 2016
Best jerky in the land
Been eating Amana beef jerky ever since our family vacation to the colonies as a kid. It can't be beat! It tastes amazing, it's not filled with all the crap the processed jerky has in it. It is perfect, don't settle for anything less. Once you try it, nothing else even comes close!
Russ Twelmeyer | 19 May 2016
Great Beef Jerky
From start to finish everything went well. Best Beef Jerky in Iowa or anywhere. Little pricey but what do you expect for the best.
Sheila | 28 Feb 2016
AWESOME Beef Jerky!!!
My husband and I are BIG fans of beef jerky in general. We like to keep it around the house for snacking. We just love the Amana beef jerky! It has a different taste than the mass manufactured jerky at the grocery stores. Somehow it tastes more like I imagine homemade beef jerky tasting. YUM!
Maria Llaca | 25 Dec 2015
Pam Veneklasen | 22 Dec 2015
First of all, I am not a fan of jerkey. We were traveling through Iowa last spring and bought a package of Amana jerkey. My son LOVES jerkey and found this to be the best he has ever had. Even my picky 15 year old daughter who never tries anything loved it. Hence, I bought them some for Christmas.
Thomas F. Tschida | 29 Sep 2015
Ever since I received a Christmas gift of your Beef Jerky I have been hooked on it and have been ordering it before I run out of my existing order so I can have some on hand always. I just love it.
Amana Response: Thank you for your comments and your business! We'll keep the beef jerky coming your way!
