Truly authentic Mexican food. Everything on the menu comes out just like the pictures in the menu and tastes wonderful. The staff is prompt and knowledgeable of all menu items. The cheese dip is a must get appetizer. Pleasant atmosphere even when it's very busy. Great place for a family meal, hang with friends or business meetings.

Shoot, our waiter about out-did himself last night; he was outstanding. I had the 2 combination and liked the cheese enchilada, and also liked the chili reneno; it was a big pepper. Salsa was OK; a little plain, but we also got their cheese dip for the chips. Also, the prices were very reasonable!

We have been going to Ricardos for years. I don't love the restaurant building itself now because it used to be a cheeseburger place and it still kind of has that feel. But when the food comes, I get over it. I think it is very tasty. I have shrimp and rice and like the onions and peppers in it.... More

The food is always good. The service is good with friendly staff. I enjoy either the chicken chimi or chicken taco salad for lunch.

Let me start with, my son and husband loved it. Me, not so much. Can't quite put my finger on why, long wait, run of the mill menu, complacent wait staff. I won't eat here again. Side note, they just moved up the street.

This is a Mexican place adjacent to a driving range for Golfers. Stopped in on a Sunday afternoon about 5:30. Only about 4 tables in the place had customers. I was in a party of 3. I used to know the owner of this place when he managed another Mexican joint across town. He kept a tight ship there, but... More

I stopped in Ricardo's last week to review the menu and see it we would like to dine there. The menu offered a variety of Mexican dishes presented very attractively. At the last minute, we decided to try it out on a Friday night, the busiest night for dining out in our area. The place was packed. We had a... More

The reviews are accurate. Why there wasn't a line out the door I don't know. Food was great. Service was friendly and efficient. The Mexican tacos were awesome! The lengua was ridiculously tender. Will definitely return.
