I am not that big of a Prime Rib fan.
I guess I don't understand why Americans in droves are so enamored over a large slab of tasteless beef that costs $30? I have had my share through the years, but I prefer a Filet Mignon, Porterhouse, or NY Pepper steak instead. I think the best part of Prime Rib is the Horse Raddish!
But Lawry's can make most people a fan, because they do it well. They employ the large metal table-side carts, just like House of Prime Rib does on Van Ness in The City.
They have at least 5 different sized cuts, from small, sliced, medium, large, and super-large in-bone. The most popular is the Lawry's Cut. This is $37, but comes with their tasty, chilled Lawry's Salad, mash potatoes, and bread pudding. You can order optional sides of cream spinach ( I recommend it, it is good) or corn. You are served warmed sourdough -like bread before the meal.
We started in the bar, having 5 of us after a trade show cooling down over cocktails, and talking shop. They have great crunchy potato chips in the bar. You are seated by a hostess when your table is ready, served by a waitress, and a separate chef carves up your meat and plates it for you, table-side
4 of us ordered the Lawry's Cut with a side of creamed spinach. The fifth order the one increment larger Jim Brady Cut. It is a lot of food, especially after we started with 2 plates of calamari appetizers to split, which came with a tasty Chipotle spiced Aoili dip.
The service is great, the food is very good, and the ambiance is nice and relaxed.
Lawry's on Flamingo in the Hughes Center between Paradise and Las Vegas Blvd (the strip).
PS - with the Lawry's seasoning and only USDA Prime cuts, this is good Prime Rib. But my favorite part was still the Horse Raddish!

Located On Flamingo Just East Of The Las Vegas Strip. This place is a classic. Silver carts, containing some of the best prime rib around, are pushed up table side and are carved right there. This place is a treat and worth the slight junket off strip to get you there. The sides are great as well. Live it up, you are in Las Vegas for cryin’ out loud!
