Hungry Hunter, near SFO
I'll be staying at a hotel right down the road. Is the prime rib here on par with Prime Rib House in SF (never been, just seen it on the Food Network's "Best Food I Ever Ate" series?
At Hungry Hunter, should I get the Prime Rib or a NY Strip?
I like my prime rib salty.
You might check to see if your hotel has a shuttle that can take you to Broadway Prime instead. http://www.broadwayprime.com/
I've not eaten there, but it's said to be modeled after San Francisco's House of Prime Rib.

A little flash from my past, there was a Hungry Hunter where I grew up in Oceanside and I remember -- when I was 9 years old -- that I liked the fact that you got a real TUREEN of self-serve soup plus a salad with this lazy susan of additives; grated cheese, diced ham, sesame seeds, croutons, bacon bits, chives, etc...
I don't remember the meat back then, but really liked the salad-condiment-thingie.
That WAS more than 35 years ago...
The Hungry Hunter near SFO had excellent prime rib as of about two years ago. I was a devotee of the Hungry Hunter in Lafayette and had purchased some discount gift cards from Paragon. When the Lafayette location closed, I used up the cards at the SF location. Both locations had old school, good cold salads, your basic baked potatoes (though their version of "chives" was chopped green onions), and excellent, tender, flavorful prime rib. I never could figure how they manage to always get the whole cut a perfect medium-rare. It had a lovely salt and herb crust. If it wasn't so geographically challenging for me, I'd be a regular there as I was at the Lafayette location.
