it's ok

Food is fine, prices are fine, but it's not much to look at inside. They are literally just down the road from bigger chain restaurants and could do better.

Richards is an old-time diner that serves good food at fair prices. If you're still looking for that six dollar breakfast or that 799 dinner this is the place to go.

I've been visiting this location for nearly 30 years. Always Consistent Food. Portions are decent for the price. Some people always look for the negative, I look for consistency. You will not be disappointed as long as you don't expect everything for FREE. :-)

If you do not like fast food then try this place. Good menu selection, and breakfast anytime. Plus it was really close to the motel we were staying. Easy to drive to without a lot of traffic congestion

The food was adequate. The price was reasonable. It seems that the customers that frequent this restaurant are all senior Citizens.

I'm not real impressed with their lunch and supper meals but the breakfast is pretty good and at a price a family can afford. The breakfast price is good and you get coffee included. Not many places include coffee. The food is tasty but my personal favorite is the blueberry pancakes. Lots of blueberries and not so huge you can"t... More

Restaurant of convenience as it is located next to hotel. As I first entered my first impressions were confirmed as most of the customers were of the older generation. Food is okay and reasonably priced. It's a place to eat, not a memory.

For the small prices they sure don't give you a lot of food. Your better off driving the 5 minutes to a Burger King or McDonald's if you want food. It was fresh and hot, but the portions REALLY need some help with this Mom and Pop establishment.
