Prime Rib in and around Austin

Rene Sep 10, 2013 02:16 PM

Can anyone recommend a truly great prime rib. I see that Fleming's is offering it on Sundays and will try that. If you have tried it, please let me know your opinion. Otherwise, any good recs?

    Bartlett's. Really I've tried to vary what I order there because so much is done really well, but I tend to come back to the prime rib, because it's just so good.

      Golden Corral has all you can eat Prime Rib on Friday and Saturday nights for $12.99. What more could you ask for? <snork>.

      Anybody been? I'm actually curious about it. Maybe I'll hit them up Friday night and take one for the team.

        Do it sqwertz, fall on the sword. I must say the commercial has the roast beast a bit overcooked for my taste.

          NOT what I'm looking for but my friends parents rave about it... say it's awesome. Good luck.

            I admit that I have been. It's not good. Somehow, it's tough and flavorless and nothing like what you would get from a nicer place.

              That Prime rib isn't good.. No smoke just cheap stuff for the walker crowd. Their fried chicken is damn good though. I can never eat there too depressing all the wheel chairs, etc.

              This is not going how I had hoped and intended. Thanks for Bartlett's... Love that. Any places you can share with someone that you happen to like?

                For God's sakes go to Bartlett's and have a great prime rib meal. Their french dip sandwich is admittedly overpriced by a few bucks but dammit is fantastically thin sliced rare beef and just kicks ass au jus and au horseradish every time. I haven't had the prime rib plated out, but it's gotta be great.

                  I do love the French Dip at Bartlett's and have enjoyed it quite a few times so this is a great rec and will try the prime rib... just looking for more options.

                    Salt Lick does a good prime rib at a reasonable price, if that is a concern.

                      Rene how about the sunday brunch at Green Pastures? You can load up a plate of all you can devour prime rib and really wonderful colossal shrimp cocktail (with a curry hint) and bourbon bread pudding for 40 bucks.

                        Can't help with the prime rib, but i really dig the grilled artichoke at bartlett's for an appetizer.

                    Re: your actual question. I like Cooper's Prime Rib. I know this might be blasphemous but I like Rudy's Prime Rib too. For formal dining Austin Land and Cattle has good prime rib.
