Loved this place on 4th St in St Pete. Tryed them on Central and was VERY unhappy. Pork Po Boy was all cold slaw ( not hardly any pork. The Turkey Po Boy was ONE thin slice of Turkey and tomato and mayo. I could not believe how bad these Po Boys were. The highlight was the bread for $10.00.... More

Easter Sunday brunch was tasty thanks to Ricky P's. The seating outside was comfortable. It was easy to get a seat outside. Enjoyed the french toast. French bread was used to make the toast. Warm maple syrup on the side. My guest enjoyed a fluffy cheese omelet. The potatoes on the side were too greasy for me. The brunch included... More

Atmosphere is relaxing but classy. Definitely the best cajun food I've found in this area. Growing up in the South definitely makes one picky when it comes to Etouffee and PoBoys. Even the Gumbo here is pretty good. Crawfish are pricey and not very big. But that's good reason to visit home once in a while!

Stumbled on this restaurant after we tried a near-by place that did not have any indoor seating. Lunch was a delight. Red beans and rice with andouille sausage was tasty and very satisfying. Went back for dinner, the same night, and were a little disappointed. Had chocolate pecan pie and it tasted like it had been nuked, not warmed in... More

Native Louisianian Ricky does an excellent job in the kitchen --- a labor of love for him. I was part of a group of 25 who visited for lunch on a weekday. I had a real po' boy for the first time, served with a side of red beans and rice. Had a small bowl of jambalaya first and some... More

This is a good local restaurant located in downtown St. Petersburg, FL's art district. The waiter/waitresses are very attentive and will allow you to sample something before ordering. The food is very authentic Cajun, southern style with heaping portions. Most dishes are under $11. Also great location to walk around after lunch or dinner.
