Having eaten at Ricardos before, this is our "Go To" restaurant in this area, food is very good, as well as the service. Our server tonight,Bridley, was very attentive and helpful. WARNING, the owner will confiscate your cell phone if your caught using it.

Ricardo's is definitely a place to go if you want a great meal at a great price. It's not a place to go if you're in a rush as the service is a little slow but that could have been due to the fact our...More

This was our second visit to Ricardo's. It has a very nice atmosphere with a bar (at which you can eat) on one side and a dining room on the other. The menu is not very large, but there are always several specials. The specials...More
