Review: Boston Market - Rotisserie Prime Rib

Boston Market's Rotisserie Prime Rib features is a cut of USDA Choice Prime Rib that's been slow-roasted in the rotisserie for over an hour. A thick slice is served with two sides, cornbread, beef au jus, and horseradish.

It's not cheap at $15.99 a plate but I suppose the price is in line with what it would cost if you can find it at a diner.

The prime rib turned out pretty well. The beef was tender enough to cut with a plastic knife and was both flavorful and juicy. The included horseradish was just plain horseradish and surprisingly not some sauce with other ingredients added to take the edge of that nose-clearing bite. Between the au jus and horseradish, I could gussy up the beef quite nicely.

While the flavor and quality of the prime rib was good, the temperature was not. It was lukewarm at best as was the rest of the plate. I think this might be one of those things that you might just want to dine-in and hope they serve it on a hot plate.

At the end of the day, Boston Market's Rotisserie Prime Rib came out pretty well and makes for a convenient and quick way to sate a craving (as long as it's one of the nights that it's available). That being said, the price at a fast casual definitely gave me pause, especially when the temperature made me think it hadn't been kept warm enough.
