BEST "Sunday Night Special" Prime Rib in TO?

Most Toronto Pubs/and some restaurants serve a "Sunday Night Special" of traditional prime rib dinner. I'm tried alot, and have not really been that impressed with any of them. In fact, the only prime rib Ive tried at a resturant that I actually liked was at the Keg!!! Now, obviously some of the great steakhouses offer a good prime rib, but has anyone tried this dish anywhere at a good "special" price?

  1. They don't do it on Sunday but Stoney's Bar and Grill in North York did a prime rib dinner on Thursday night that couldn't be beat. Huge slab o' cow and all the fixin's for $9.99. It was excellent. Much better than the Keg across the street.
    Now, the place has changed (It'll be featured on "Restaurant Make Over" sometime soon) so I'd call first if you're interested.

      9.99$?! Thats pretty damn good, is it only offered on Thurs? and where is Stoneys exactly?

    2. If they have any left over you can get it on Fridays.
      Stoney's is one block north of Sheppard, on Yonge across from the Grand movie theatre (West side).

      1. The House on Parliament does Sunday prime rib dinners - $13.95. Prime rib + gravy + veg + mash + yorkshire pudding + bread pudding/creme anglaise. It gets packed every week, can't remember if you have to reserve or just show up early. Enjoy.

          Yes, see HOP is my favourite resto, but I cant bring myself to order anything other than their pulled pork sandwich because I am so in love with it. My mother(British) says their prime rib is good, so maybe next time I'm out there I'll ignore my love for their pulled pork and be adventurous haha

        2. I have seen that Pogue Mahone at Yonge & College offers a Sunday prime rib dinner as well. Their food is definitely hit-and-miss, so be forewarned.

          1. The Sunday prime rib at the HoP is very good, as is the Sunday special at the Rebel House on Yonge, but they have better beer at the Rebel House...

                It's across the street and a couple doors north of the Rosedale subway station. There's a Fourbucks next door to it.
                Wife and I ate there. Great food. Didn't have the PR though.

                    Like I said though. It's been renovated so call first and find out.

                  The Rebel House is at 1068 Yonge St, across the street and just north of the Rosedale station. It also has The Best poutine in the city, and perhaps in the province (I've been doing a pretty extensive survey). And if they have Blanche de Chambly on tap, it's a good, good day for me...

                    1. re: hungryabbey

                      The prices are a couple of dollars more than regular bar food, but not outrageous, and you are getting some quality chow and mircobrew beer, so it's worth it. The bison burger, for example, is about $10, an order of poutine (with excellent gravy, curds and smoked mozzarella) is $6, and I think the prime rib might be $18, and for that you get a biiig slab of meat, veg potato and a Yorkshire pudding.
                      My only issue with the Rebel House is that it's rather small and extremely popular, so it can feel cramped and loud on a Friday night, but Sundays are usually a little quieter...

                        Oh thats not too bad at all. I generally like dining out on sunday for that reason

                        1. re: hungryabbey

                          Abbey, I'm sure you won't be disappointed at the Rebel House.
