We had a nice meal, which was well cooked and presented. There is plenty of parking as it's away from the main downtown area. The staff were great and very friendly. The corn soup was delicious and the hamburger was one of the best I've had.

Took a risk because I was told it is a 50-50 with the fried chicken, sometimes it is good, sometimes it is not. I got lucky it was just still good...

You'll find delicious and dependable classics at Rick's Desert Grill. Try the Caesar Salad and you'll experience one of the best Caesar dressings you've ever tasted. Don't miss the Deviled Eggs. And by all means, indulge in the gravy-soaked Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes. No frills, straight-forward, good eating. Recommended!

We had breakfast here the three days we were in palm springs because our hotel was just in front of it. The food was good, the people were nice, the service was fast and the place really pleasant.

A little out of the heart of the tourist area but still close and convenient. I received a friendly welcome with good humour and a bit of a ribbing due to the amount of service I received. The beef ribs were very enjoyable, and the other suggestions were on target.

For the price and quality of friendly service, Rick's serves up many tasty dishes with style and flair...particularly their cuban fare. The menu varies widely so there's something for everyone in their comfortable space at n. Palm Canyon and Vista Chino. Plenty of parking. They take reservations if you have a larger party. Happy Hour gives you bargain prices but... More
