Rear low-key authentic Mexican food. Family run type vibe with a lovely woman serving us. A little tucked away but probably better than most on the highway.

Mama Ricarda made us feel at home from the start. Her & her husband are the nicest people. The food was authentic & delicious. We'll stop here every time we visit Fort Bragg. We got Lengua burritos & Chicken Enchiladas.

What a great little place. Don’t expect nothing fancy, but homey food and nice family atmosphere. Ricarda is cooking everyday for her guest this delicious Mexican food. Guacamole is made on the spot, at the moment when you order, so it comes to your table...More

Not good... Beans were watery and tasteless. Carnita was bland and unappetizing. Very disappointing.

Sorry Anna that you did not enjoy your experience. Your review is very unusual in that it is so different than so many others who have obviously enjoyed dining at Ricarda's. We regret your experience did not meet your expectation.

Fantastic place to eat. Family operated and they make you feel like family the minute you walk in. Mama Ricarda does not let anyone leave hungry :) Best Mexican food I have had. I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.

This is as good as Mexican food gets, prepared by Mama Ricarda. It is, for us, a destination restaurant we travel over 1 1/2 hours to get to. Try the burritos with homemade sauces.
