One of our favorite breakfast places! We love the sampler, with all of the different smoked and slow cooked meats. Service is always friendly.

Have always liked diners - this is one of the best. Had the breakfast special (4 kinds of meat); wife had a veggie omelet; M-I-L - a breakfast burrito. All were excellent. Service was good. This Richie's has an outdoor kitchen in front of the diner and they were already smoking meats. The steak on the menu looked yummy. Only... More

All kinds of yummy comfort food. My favorite is the fried zucchini and chocolate shakes. My husband loves the fish and chips! The service is good. The prices are so, so. The only negative thing I've noticed over the last few years, is it's not as clean as it once was :-/

My wife and I have been going to Richie's Diners for several years since we first discovered the original in old town Temecula (which is no longer there). All locations offer excellent food and service for a decent price. My favorites are their filet mignon and banana cream pie for desert. However, they have a varied menu offering something for...

Awesome food and BBQ done on an outside grill. Old fashion shakes in the metal containers. The decore is 50s charm and American pride. The little store sells old time candy and lots of fun things. Save a quarter for a jumbo gumball. A family fun atmosphere. Enjoyed by all.

I am from jersey where old diners are everywhere(and fantastic). I was weary when i saw a diner in an obviously new plaza. The grill/smoker outside was a dead giveaway it wasnt like our nj diners, but it smelled so good we wanted lunch instead of breakfast. The decor is retro. Food was good, we had basic breakfast dishes. My... More

We have been going to Richie's off and on for awhile now. Service is usually hit and miss, the same staff, sometimes nice, sometimes you wonder what side of the bed they woke up on. The new waitress, and I can't recall her name, was outstanding. She was very attentive, made sure we were all okay with our service, and... More

Want a great breakfast steak with country potatoes? Try this... take a dip in one of the natural hot springs in Murietta, they drive up the street for friendly service and a cute little diner serving great breakfast dishes. Want a Pecan banana pancake or Eggs Benedict with a large cut of ham, find this place and you will say... More
