I cringe at the name of the place. When one here's "House of" anything, it's usually a sign that the establishment is very far from being a top quality option for a given food. But I gave House of Prime Rib a shot, as upon a trip from Los Angeles and in San Francisco, I was in the mood for...you guessed it...prime rib.
To say I was surprised would be an understatement.
In fact, now that I live in the great beef capital of the world, Argentina, I still find myself visiting House of Prime rib with each visit to the US. While the beef is excellent in Argentina, virtually every option I have for it requires only getting beef in grilled form via a parrilla. And sometimes, you miss the good old fashioned concept of slow roasting meats versus the flash heat grilling technique that is so popular in Argentina.
So at House of Prime Rib, you get exactly that: slow roasted prime rib.
You're only decision really needs to be in the size of the cut of meet.
Each meal comes with the House of Prime Rib signature spinning beet salad, which is one of my favorites. Side dishes are mashed potatoes and gravy with their creamed spinach. Each meal also comes along with Yorkshire pudding.

The ambiance of House of Prime Rib is a win as well. It has the feel of a traditional US steakhouse, with a number of large rooms and short hallways and corridors the upon exploring show you how large the actual space is.
Reservations are recommended. I've gone 5 or so times and always have an hour wait without reservations as the place is filled most nights. I actually don't mind as they have a nice bar area and keep you snacking via their own mixed nut individual serving jars.
If you're in San Francisco and craving some prime rib, look no further than House of Prime Rib.
