We've eaten at Rick's a few times as our daughter is in school at JMU. We love the downtown location and the historic building plus the roof top seating. I am not a fan of their salsa or qua ample. They are both bland BUT...More

My friends and I come for burritos every Sunday after church and sometimes on Friday nights. The steak burrito with blackberry habanero sauce is to die for. The chicken quesadilla and gringo tacos are great also. The service varies but our two favorites, Mary and...More

I really want to love this place. With Dave's gone, I was looking for a replacement for a good outdoor bar/restaurant downtown. This isn't it. We once waited 45 minutes for a table, only to be told after being seated that they were out of:...More

Service was horrible! Pretty sure our waitress was high. Took forever to get our food. Had to practically beg someone to refill our drinks and bring our food. Never did get the chips we ordered. Food was ok but would not go back for that...More

Okay food on a limited menu. Where are the fajitas and enchiladas? My 2$ sangria was nice but seemed like a virgin one. The best part was eating on the roof at sunset and Alex Eaddy was a very good server.

Good speciality Mexican food. Less fat and better ingredients than most Mexican food. I love Mexican, but don't like the animal fat and low grade meat. At Rick's you can eat Mexican and not feel so bad about the content and calories.

I liked my meal...they charge for chips and salsa? Our server was not the best, but the food was tasty. They did nickle and dime us for everything. Small sides of salad were a quarter...to change the standard sauce in my burritto was a quarter...More
