Prime Rib at Pug’s Follow Up
Based on some recommendations from friends and coworkers, I decided to check out Pug Mahon's Friday night prime rib special. As I said in my last post about prime rib, flavor is somewhat of a given. Some are definitely better than others, but if you're going to offer prime rib at a Montana restaurant, you won't last long if it isn't up to par. That's why I'm mainly focusing on value.
This was one of the rare occasions where I asked for a half order. That's not usually my speed, but what is pictured above is a half order. I don't think I could put down a full order on my best day. You get a basic salad with the deal and the baked potato and au jus are the only accompaniments. That's fine with me. There's no real estate on that plate for veggies anyway.
As far as quality of the meat and value for the money. I would give Pug Mahon's about a 7/10. As much as I enjoyed the prime rib, there were some other plates that I saw going to other tables that I wish I had ordered. I'll probably save Pug Mahon's for sandwiches, meat pies and stews, but overall I have no complaints.
