Best Prime Rib Specials in Every State

Prime Cuts

Cut from the ribs of the cow, prime rib is a roast, not a steak — and it's one of the most popular cuts of beef in America. April 27 is National Prime Rib Day, and every day of the year restaurants across the country serve prime rib as a special (some just for early bird diners). Here are some of the best prime rib nights across the country.
