Prime Rib in Austin

If I want to have prime rib for dinner in Austin (or surrounding area), where should I go? Who do you think serves good prime rib here?

  1. I'd like to know that too. Prime rib seems to be hard to find in Austin.

    1. Though I've never actually ordered it ($28!!), Houston's on Anderson and Burnet has Prime Rib on their regular menu, rather than as a special. Everything else I've had there has been reliably yummy, so I wouldn't hesitate to try it.

      1. re: gilintx

        I've had it and it is great. they have a cheaper and smaller lunch cut too.

        Houston's Restaurant
        2408 W Anderson Ln, Austin, TX 78757

      2. lambert's dinner menu is really pricey and gets some bad press on this board, so i humbly suggest the totally-worth-it $26 all you can eat brunch menu.

        in addition to as much freshly carved niman ranch prime rib as you can stand, there are all sorts of other deliciousness you can enjoy.
        when we went, i particularly enjoyed, in no specific order:
        caviar deviled eggs
        brioche french toast
        cheddar and roasted poblano grits
        brown sugar & coffee rubbed brisket

        feast your eyes here:

        our brunches have always been gut-busting and the service is not intrusive.
        it's also nice to walk around the 2nd street area after and look at expensive stuff i will almost never buy.
        i think it is a way better deal/experience compared to their dinners.

        1. The Roaring Fork - Stonelake has a prime rib special on Sundays. I just found out about it last weekend so I haven't had a chance to try it. I'm willing to bet it's very good, though.

          1. I've heard from several people that the Salt Lick has a prime rib dinner only on Sundays. I'm not a fan of their BBQ, but I would definitely like to try the prime rib sometime (the people raving to me about the prime rib were also not fans of their BBQ). I've had it at Houston's and it was good (this would be about 7 years ago). I know they also serve it at Perry's, and I imagine that would be quite good.
