Why SF’s iconic House of Prime Rib is temporarily closing

Bay Area

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – San Francisco’s famed House of Prime Rib restaurant will shut down for 24 hours starting Thursday.

Owner Joe Betz is inviting the health department to stop by for an inspection after there were concerns over food safety and some people reported becoming sick after eating there.

Betz says he made the decision to invite health inspectors on his own because he wants the public to see how the restaurant operates.

The House of Prime Rib posted a statement to their Instagram Wednesday acknowledging an “isolated issue with some of our prime rib,” noting that the problem was addressed immediately.

“We remain committed to the highest level of quality and service for our customers,” the post added.
