Best Pasadena Prime Rib Place-Suggestions?

We're celebrating an in-law's 60th with a surprise b-day dinner. Her food of choice - prime rib. We want to try something new so Arroyo Chophouse and Smitty's are no longer options.
Hounds, can you suggest a new place?

  1. Well it's been a long time since I've been there so maybe others can give you the latest on this place-Beckham Place on Walnut St, just west of Fair Oaks. But I do remember the clientele were mainly in the 60's range. Oh, and the food was pretty darn good too.

    1. Is Tam O' Shanter in Glendale/Los Feliz too far to go?

      How about Frank and Dean's? a 60 year old oughtta like that place...they serve prime rib on weekends only, it's "Heckles Prime Rib" supposedly based on some famous Pasadena Prime Rib place of old.

        Come on, the joint that has changed names about five times in the last ten years? They are advertisting a truck give-away on their web site, is that what they need to do to get people to come in and eat their food?

      2. I really like the prime rib at Houstons in Pasadena.

        1. I have not yet tried it, but a friend and colleague swears by the Sunday prime rib at the Grill On the Alley in Beverly Hills (9560 Dayton Way, (310) 276-0615, He's usually spot on with regard to food and restaurants, and he says it's the best in the city. Sunday only, I think.

          1. I had a *really* nice prime rib on the bone at Houston's
            in Pasadena.

            I think they only have it on the weekends, but it was worth it.

            I realize its a chain, but its a good chain.

              I also love the prime rib at Houston's. I think it's one of the best ones in town. I really like having it on the bone because I can take it home for later. :)
