The food was disappointing. Bland hamburgers and ribs. I got the "signature" burger and it left much to be desired. The onion rings side came with two rings. They were made from the very first hard layer. Un edible. I will not be returning.

I've been here quite a bit for breakfast but have never been for any other meal here. They have a lot of choices and it's all been good. They smoke their own meat there and it always smells amazing. Definitely a spot to try.

Go back in time, to the days of sitting in a diner with the feel of what is was to be in a time of innocents. Richie's can take you back, with good food, friendly service, and a clean restaurant. I enjoy eating at this flash back of the early 1960's. The design of the place offers that classic look... More

Richie's Diner is a great place to stop and grab a meal. Their service is beyond exceptional and the prices are very reasonable for the amount of food you get. The menu is great and on the weekends they have a large bbq out front and serve all kinds of steaks and other grilled items. We ride in with about... More

My friends and I who live locally have been to Richie's dozens of times for breakfast. Everything is always very fresh, hot & cooked to order. Some of their fantastic offerings: Begian waffles, giant blueberry muffins, & Ozark-glazed ham that tops any ham I've had at any restaurant ever! The eggs always come exactly as requested, and nothing EVER tastes... More

When my wife and I are in the Rancho Cucamonga area Richies dinner is one of our favorite places to eat. They have awsome service, and a huge delicious menu to choose from, and if you like steaks, they grill them right outside on an open flame grill fueled by oak wood. And serving breafast, lunch, & diner, you cant... More

The food was good. The milkshakes were fantastic. It was classic American comfort food fitting seamlessly in with its 50's retro atmosphere. It had a fun diner décor and 50's music playing. The staff even dress in the theme. They had a lot of fun things for the kids at other tables (none were with our party).

On a family visit to California we went to Richie's for lunch. Talk about Retro. We enjoyed ribs that my husband said were mighty good and then there were the malts. Be sure if you have one to SHARE since these are monsters. Everything was enjoyable and the surroundings could have been used in the movie American Grafitti. This is... More

If I'm nearby I just can't stay away from this place for breakfast. I know there are meal options as well, but I use to come in the morning. Love having my Breakfast Sampler before starting my trip back. The turkey burgers are a must here as well.

We really had great hopes for this restaurant, as their menu was very extensive and had a lot of really great American old time favorites. My mouth was watering just reading about all the great stuff they had to order. Too bad that they had no service. It was impossible to get the attention of our waitress. When we asked... More
