National Prime Rib Day is this Wednesday (April 27).

According to National Day Calendar, National Prime Rib Day annually recognizes the special favorite on April 27 each year. The Prime Rib is a choice cut from one of the eight prime cuts of beef, and it is sometimes known as the "King of Meats." One may observe National Prime Rib Day Day by visiting your favorite restaurant or making your own at home and using #NationalPrimeRibDay to share on social media.  I personally love a good prime rib with sauteed mushrooms and onions on top and mashed potatoes on the side. Yum!

We asked the Hudson Valley where in the area is their go-to place for the best prime rib, and have compiled a top 5 list.

Established in 1995, PC's Paddock is a charming, cozy restaurant located on Titusville Rd in the town of Poughkeepsie. The restaurant is nestled in a renovated barn that was built in 1840. They serve up American cuisine, steaks, and seafood. I've been there for some special occasions and I love this place and its prime rib. Try the 12 oz Oven Roast Prime Rib.

Another popular Poughkeepsie spot and the newest establishment on our list, Jason Patrick's on 44, is a cozy restaurant and bar serving American comfort food in a relaxed, family-friendly setting. We're told the seasoned and slow-roasted whole prime rib with Au jus and two sides is a must-have.

I've always heard nothing but good things about Gus's in New Windsor and their prime rib, and apparently, much of the Hudson Valley has as well. They've made the number 2 spot on this list. Gus's Tavern, established in 1934, is a family-owned German/American restaurant serving the Hudson Valley for four generations. You gotta check out their Friday and Saturday Prime Rib Special.

Another place I've always heard good things about, and eventually had to try. Loughran's Irish Pub in Salisbury Mills has become a Hudson Valley staple since first opening their doors in 1986. Known for serving up huge portions, their prime rib can't be beat. I remember doing a WPDH broadcast from Loughran's many years ago and I had the prime rib after having heard so much about it. Not only was it amazing, but it was the biggest prime rib I'd had ever seen. Looked like a piece of meat right out of the Flintstones!

When the Hudson Valley was asked where their favorite go-to place was for the best prime rib, the most popular answer was Loughran's Irish Pub in Salisbury Mills. And we'd have to agree with this answer.

Well, there ya have it. So many options out there in the Hudson Valley, and we only scratched the surface with this top 5 list. Go out and enjoy National Prime Rib Day on Wednesday, wherever you end up.
