  1. House of Prime Rib (Van Ness, SF).

    1. I second HOPR. Some people like the Buckeye's Monday night special or Izzy's, but, for me HOPR is the best around. I prefer it to Lawry's as well.

        The Prime Rib at Buckeyes is supposed to be smoked, or grilled...have you (or anyone) tried it?

          I have been to the Buckeye a couple of times and while I wanted to like it each time, I have always left underwhelmed. Yes, as I recall, the prime rib is smoked. Smoked meats just don't do it for me the way they used to.

          I suppose if I really wanted prime rib, I would do something like the House of Prime Rib on Van Ness.

            Bummer about Buckeye!
            Yes, HOPR is my default prime rib location...

      2. The prime rib at Walker's Pie Shop in Albany isn't the best but it's good for the price. Good popovers. Mediocre soup, salad, sides, pie.

        1. Burlingame, try Broadway Primb on Broadway, right hand side of the street as you are driving away from the freeway. They have a website.

          1. I agree - I was underwhelmed by the Buckeye's Smoked Prime Rib.
