Just went to the new Rick's location located on south 7th Street in Terre Haute, Indiana. It was great! Had the pulled pork with all the trimmings. If you want a great barbecue meal, you have to go to Ricks!

I had the pleasure of having lunch at the NEW south 7th st. location. The Brisket was amazing and the staff was very friendly. Nice atmosphere!!! BBQ is one of my favorite foods and there is a reason it was voted the Best in town.

We were very excited to try Rick's because we are huge BBQ fans. Sadly, Rick's was a huge disappointment. We could've overlooked the outrageous price if it was really good BBQ, but it just isnt. Their homemade sauces are weird. They taste a little too "taco-y" for my liking, and they are very runny. I will say, the portions are... More

Saw ads, guess it's true. you cant' believe everything you read. went to new location. waited 45m for cold brisket, re-heated side dish. Rub was very salty, and the chicken was sooo over cooked the meat had split.

Just walking up to the door, you smell the BBQ smoky goodness and your mouth starts to water. The meat is excellent, and the side dishes are good as well. The service is fast, but definitely a sit-down meal. The restaurant is unique and well decorated with lots of local memorabilia.

Tried the 3 meat sampler, ribs, pulled pork and pork loin. Loin was dry, but that's the cut, decent smoke. Pulled pork was in a liquid of some type before it was served, difficult to get a read on. Ribs were okay. 4 sauces, but I don't sauce Hashbrown casserole was good. Slaw was average, did have a cabbage stem... More

I was in town for Freshman Orientation for my son. We wanted to try something local, so we found Rick's Smokehouse very near the hotel. It was very easy to find and it was not busy. We arrived at 8:30; they closed at 9:00. It was a counter style order system. We both ordered the Tip dinner and went to... More

There were around 40 ladies who met for lunch here. The service was great. We ordered on our own and they did a great job getting the orders correct. Quick service. Great place for a large group to meet.
