Rated 2 out of 5 by Terri My cats would not eat this
Bought this because Evanger's has a good product generally, but none of my cats would eat it. I run a rescue and 30 cats voted no.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Heynonynony A healthy switch if your cat likes store brands, but not if your cat is sensitive
I was initially excited to find an affordable grain-free cat food with no carageenan, so I mistakenly assumed it would have the bits in gravy consistency my cat likes. It didn't, and turns out the extra vegetables I saw listed (butternut quash, tomato paste, guar gum) gave the food an extra dense pate consistency which she doesn't like. Since she has a pretty finicky stomach, she's a pretty picky eater. This was the first canned food she refused to eat -- at least, until she was starving and I mixed in some fish. It all seemed fine for the first couple days until she started vomiting after meals. I can't tell if it's the Evanger's, the other food I'm mixing in to get her to eat it, or the stress of having moved house a couple days ago, but bottom line is she doesn't like the food I'm trying to force her to eat, and my carpet can only take so many vomit stains.
For people with less picky cats, this seems like a good, healthy choice. For people with extremely sensitive cats, this could be hit or miss. For mine, it just didn't work out the way I had hoped -- although I'm contemplating trying it out on the dog, since there seems to be a fair amount of vegetable content in it...

Rated 1 out of 5 by James Cats won't touch it.
Bought 1 case of the Beef it Up Dinner cat food and 1 case of the Chicken Lickin' Dinner. 3 cats won't touch it! I noticed when I put it in the disposal that it was gritty like it had ground bones in it. Now I know why it was so cheap.

Rated 2 out of 5 by donald Changed formula
I have been buying "Beef it up" for years, two cases at a time every few months. My cat loved it, it was the only canned food she would eat. But something has changed. The lid on the can is different and the catffod itself is darker and dryer. And my cat does not like it. So, I now have to hunt for a new food. WHY DID YOU CHANGE A GOOD PRODUCT?

Rated 4 out of 5 by cv919 Evanger Has Better Ingredients
I wanted to get my cats some healthier can food. Most of store brands are just ground up guts and stuff mixed with who knows what. This stuff is made with actual meat. I know they appreciate it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by pinkhearts777 Good ingredients and decent price - PATE STYLE
I'm actually writing this review on behalf of my mom...her cat is elderly and has few teeth....he likes pate style food. This particular style -Beef It Up -is pate and it clearly states that is the traditional "loaf style"...NOT chunks of beef and gravy # that is Evanger's Slow Cooked style#......He likes it...actually he loves it....gobbles it up....This food has no unfavorable ingredients # at least that I can tell#....no added colorings, bht, nitrites, carrageenan...etc....Can't beat the price...a little over a buck a can ....great !!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Chris28 My cats are okay with it
My cats don't hate it & they're not too crazy about it. I guess they're okay with it. It's got a lot of sauce, so that's a plus. And my cats who can't eat anything but Fancy Feast, have an easier time eating this food than other health food. By the way, Fancy Feast has given most of my cats hyperthyroid & kidney issues, because it contains too much sugar and salt and because it's made in equipment that's contaminated with rocket fuel
