For lunch, tried a house specialty and was left feeling heavy. Don't think I'll return. The decore was awesome and nostalgic.

this spot is a hidden gem, the owners wait on the tables and prepare the food. incredible menu, and it shows. high quality food and an excellent dining experience. I recommend the Salmon BLT for lunch and the Pork chops for dinner, but everything on the menu is top shelf.

Stayed the night near here on a road trip down to Death Valley. Stopped in and had a couple beers and a burger. The burger was great and i'd definitely recommend. The place had a cool, relaxed vibe. Pretty quiet when I went - though it was on a weeknight. Didn't realize until I was almost done with my meal... More

We love Rick's and his food! The food is so delious and the staff is very friendly. The atmosphere very fun too! It is wonderful for great private parties. They closed for my 50th birthday party and the guests raved on long after about the wonderful food! Thanks Rick's for being such a wonderful place in Meridian!

Went here after seeing them on a Food Network show. Was in for lunch AFTER the "lunch rush" about 1PM. Kitchen was overworked. Wait staff overworked and not prompt. Food was average. I understand the family-run type business, but at some point, you need more than one person waiting tables. The sandwich was decent, but nothing noteworthy, nor worth the... More

The soup was amazing. Several trips to Ricks and always the same outcome. Great food and too full. But of course I'll be back. :)

We saw Rick's on DDD and always wanted to try it. The specialty is the potatoe crusted salmon yet we were in the mood for sandwiches. We visited during lunch and for an out of the way place off the main Meridian drag, it was busy during the mid week. There was only one staff member manning the restaurant and... More

Went with some friends on the recommendation for their all you can eat BBQ. It was OK and I have had better BBQ. Atmosphere is pretty cool and owners are friendly. I don't recommend the BBQ as I think they probably have better things in the menu.

The restaurant is a small hometown cafe off of Main Street run by a husband and wife. The food was fresh, delicious and definitely homemade. We had the Tuna melt with a bowl of soup. Today's soup special was a Mexican pozole and it was delicious, as was the tuna melt. The menu includes soup, salads, burgers, sandwiches as well... More
