$1.25 Prime Rib at Lawry's The Prime Rib on June 11: Happy 75th Anniversary!

Pay the 1938 price of just $1.25 for a "Lawry cut" Prime Rib served table-side and accompanied with horseradish, mashed potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and their Spinning Bowl salad. Tuesday June 11th only from 11am-3pm How long do you think this line will be?

  1. Somewhere about the length of a ticket line for a Beatles reunion tour (if it were still possible)?

    Are they taking reservations for this, do you know?

    1. re: Servorg

      I guess I'll just wait in line.

      Given that my Time is worthless.

    2. I'll be there to battle it out.. i figure.. at worst.. i wait awhile while I hang out with friends and decide on another place nearby

      I called and tried to make reservations, they said no for that day.

      1. For everyone that doesn't want to stand in line on June 11th Lawry's is having a month long JUNE special, a three-course dinner for $75 per couple, plus tax & gratuity.
        Original Spinning Bowl Salad
        Special 8 oz. Cut of Roasted Prime Ribs of Beef Mashed Potatoes & Yorkshire Pudding
        - or - Fresh Salmon & Seasonal Vegetables
        Chef's Special 75th Anniversary Dessert

        Still a good deal and it's only $72.50 more than the June 11th special.

        1. The local Houston news reported the line is just west of town on I-10. I've driven LA-Houston by myself, I guess I can walk Houston-LA. Hope they don't run out.

          1. The line will be silly long...doing it for the challenge and fun, if that's your bag, may be worth it.

            Question: How will people tip? On current value, or will they just leave a quarter??? While I'm sure that Lawry's is anticipating people drinking and ordering deserts, I think most people will just have ice water.
