    Silver Nugget $4.99 prime rib dinner Fridays & Saturdays only. It's kind of a gangsta place but can't beat the price. I would go, would you? Are there any other cheapo prime rib specials? The only ones I know is the Cal's $9.99 prime rib or El Cortez I believe has a $9.99 prime rib.

    Wow! That's an amazingly low price. I thought the Cal's price was the lowest nowadays with the costs of everything going up.

    Not sure if I would go, not because of the "gangsta" atmosphere but more because it's out of the way? If the prime rib is anything like the pic shows, it must be worth trying at least.

    I wonder if there is a stipulation to the low price, like you have to put so many points in before you can have it for that price. I heard Ellis Island does that for their steak special.

    Yea, but it's $4.99 and no doubt worth every penny. Seriously though, I'm not the least bit ashamed to eat a cheap meal, no need to show off cause no one's watching you.

    When eating "prime" rib you get what you pay for. I would prefer a good $5. hamburger to a tough piece of meat, but if it tastes good and you enjoy it that is great. Thanks for posting........Rick

    Well, you figure for $5...it's going to do what it's designed to do (e.g. supply x-amount of nutrition, a modicum of taste and then six or so hours later....). You'd probably blow $5 on a hamburger anyway, so this might be a nice alternative.

    Thanks for sharing OP.

    Not to thread jack.... BUT.... can anyone share what they think is the best balance between price and quality for prime rib in Vegas? I'm thinking <$14.99 price point but good 3/5star or better quality?

    Those mashed potatoes with gravy remind me of 9th grade school lunch, circa 1974, sometimes we would ask for a second scoop.

    Jerry's Nugget serves GREAT prime rib! Not as cheap as $4.95 but a fraction of what you would pay on the Strip.
