Prime Rib is a staple of the Las Vegas culinary scene and has historically been used as a loss leader by casinos to draw the gambling public in.
Unfortunately, over the years, cheap prime rib in Las Vegas has become more difficult to find, often relegated to inexpensive buffets, or restaurants away from the Strip and Fremont Street.
I thought it would be helpful to compile and maintain a list of prime rib deals and specials in Las Vegas to help you get your fix at an affordable price point.
Keep in mind that this isn’t a rundown of the “best” or highest quality prime rib, rather, options that won’t break the bank.
Where To Find Cheap Prime Rib on the Strip
Ellis Island: While not located directly on the Strip, Ellis Island is only a short walk behind Bally’s and offers a cheap King Cut Prime Rib meal for $21.99 at their Village Pub & Cafe. This prime rib deal is served with garlic green beans and au jus sauce.
Where To Find Cheap Prime Rib Downtown Las Vegas
Tony Roma’s at Fremont: Tony Roma’s offers an $8.99 prime rib special which is served from 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm daily. The meal comes with a baked potato and vegetables and ranks among the best prime rib deals in Las Vegas from a value standpoint.
Market Street Cafe at California: For $17.99, Market Street serves up the “Cal Cut Prime Rib” which they label as the “Juiciest Prime Rib in Town”. The meal comes with a house salad, and choice of steamed rice, baked potato, mashed potatoes, or fries. Guests will also receive a fresh vegetable and Market Street’s cherries jubilee.
Siegel’s 1941 at El Cortez: The 24/7 prime rib special at Siegel’s 1941 provides a prime rib meal complete with veggies and potato for only $16.95.
Freedom Beat at Downtown Grand: While Freedom Beat’s Prime Rib typically costs $21, loyalty club members that accumulate 25 points using their Grand Rewards Player’s Club card qualify for the “Gambler’s Special”.
That special entitles you to the same meal for $14.99. If you plan to do some gambling anyway, this could be a great option.
Las Vegas Prime Rib Deals Off the Beaten Path
Jerry’s Nugget: Located in North Las Vegas, the casino itself, and the neighborhood is unlikely to blow you away, but the prime rib at Jerry’s Famous Coffee Shop just might. Options include an 8-10 oz. English Cut Prime Rib offered for $19.99 and a 28-30 oz. Thick Cut Prime Rib which is $44.99. Prime Rib options at Jerry’s are served with rice, choice of potato, and soup or salad.
Primarily Prime Rib: A restaurant at South Point specializing in Prime Rib, a 10 oz. cut will set you back only $22.95 and comes with salad, potato, and veggies. South Point is located south of Mandalay Bay on the Las Vegas Strip and will require a taxi/rideshare ride from resorts on the Strip.
Garden Buffet at South Point: South Point’s Garden Buffet offers an affordable prime rib dinner Saturday through Thursday from 4 pm – 9 pm for $23.95. Note that you’ll need to be a member of the player’s loyalty program to obtain that deal, so sign up. Non-members pay $26.95.
A prime rib brunch is also offered on Saturdays and Sundays which includes bottomless mimosas for the same price.
