My husband and I stopped by this gem on our way back home. I have to say that the brisket and the pulled pork hit the spot. Their sauces are house made and are all tasty and amazing. The rib tips were a bit dry for my taste but were still packed with flavor. This is a must go in... More

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.

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!
