When the call for a steak is strong, this San Francisco classic knows how to deliver. House of Prime Rib is definitely a throwback to another era (it dates back to 1949), but that’s the foundation of its charm. Big booths, a spinning tableside salad show—it all leads up to the main event, the stainless steel beef cart that looks like a zeppelin. After being wheeled up to your table, a server in a chef’s toque will carve off your preferred cut of prime and aged beef, along with a T. Yorkshire pudding and creamed spinach on the side. And if you somehow have room at the end of your meal, they will serve you seconds, gratis. The room is always packed with a hodgepodge of tourists and a crowd that spans all ages—the appeal of a perfect and old school prime rib dinner knows no bounds.
