Prime Rib in Northern Virginia

sarahkt99 Nov 18, 2008 07:50 AM

Does anyone know of a decent and somewhat inexpensive place to have prime rib? My husband and I loved going to The New Orlean's House before their food took a turn for the worse and before it closed. We aren't looking for a fancy place like The Prime Rib, just somewhere with decent prices where we can satisfy our prime rib cravings. Thanks!

      Sweetwater does a good version.

        Surprisingly enough, Outback Steakhouse does a quite creditable prime rib for very little money.

          A friend of mine really enjoys the prime rib at P J Skidoos in Fairfax. It's on the menu there every day and it's definitely a casual and affordable place. (Haven't had the prime rib myself, as it isn't something I often order. But I find the food there generally pretty good for the price.)

            I had the prime rib at PJ Skidoo, and it was Meh. Arties does a nice prime rib on the bone.

            JR Stockyard in Tysons is similar to Orleans House. No salad bar though. Give it a try.

                Mike's, Artie's, Sweetwater--- any of this company's outposts (Great American Restaurants). Get it blackened. Worth it even if were expensive, which it is not. Artie's gets crowded IMHO, but u can eat at the bar...

                  I also recommend Artie's.
