I went there over the weekend and picked up a few items. Prices on certain items (mostly non-food items) were on par with Costco and Smart & Final, for instance.
I picked up some babyback ribs (3 slabs in single cryovac, just like Costco) for $2.47/lb. Costco sells them for $3.79/lb here so that was a deal.
No individual steaks, all beef and pork come in roast sizes so you need to cut them yourself.

I am a member, too. Just watch their prices. I find things there that are significantly more expensive than what I find at Costco or Sam's. However, there are things I can find at RD that I don't find anywhere else.

I find it the exact opposite here in Phoenix. When I compare some of their prices to Costco, RD is most often higher. I can get some things there, however, that aren't available at Costco.

Yeah, I guess prices can vary by region. You gotta know your prices before you go shopping. :)

For utensils I've seen lower prices at the Costco Business Center locations.
