Lawry's The Prime Rib To Close Dallas Location

The restaurant is still taking reservations for the time being

After 40 years in Dallas, Lawry's The Prime Rib is closing. The restaurant, along the Dallas North Tollway between Belt Line Road and Spring Valley Road, is not expected to relocate. 

“We want to thank our loyal guests, staff, colleagues and the community for 40 unforgettable years,”  a statement from Lawry’s read. “In the coming weeks, we hope you join us to celebrate our time in this great city with the best Prime Rib and Lawry’s warm hospitality.”

According to The Dallas Morning News, the closure comes after the sale of the restaurant’s building. Prior to the current Spring Valley location, the restaurant was closer to downtown Dallas. Lawry's first opened on Maple Avenue in Dallas, where Nick & Sam's is now located, and remained there for 15 years. 

In 1938, Lawrence L. Frank and Walter Van de Kamp established the company in Beverly Hills. Over time, it expanded to include locations in Las Vegas, Texas and California. Despite the Dallas closure, two other Lawry locations will remain open in Beverly Hills and Las Vegas. The company gained additional fame for Lawry's Seasoned Salt, made from paprika, celery, turmeric, garlic, salt and other spices sold by McCormick's spice brand.

If you’re hoping to get in before the restaurant closes its doors, reservations can still be made for a limited time. Though Lawry’s has not announced when the final day will be, The Dallas Morning News reported it is likely the restaurant will close in March 2024. 

Lawry's Valentine's special is available in Dallas from February 9 to 18, 2024. The dinner, priced at $79 per person, commences with The Famous Original Spinning Bowl Salad. It offers a choice between prime rib, Chilean sea bass or filet. The dinner concludes with either a flourless chocolate cake or an English trifle.
