Visit the Terre Haute area on a frequent basis and always make a point to stop at Rick's. The food is well prepared and tasty; pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff. The portions are not huge, but sufficient quantities for the price. A great casual place to grab a meal.

Friendly staff greet you as you walk in and assist with description of meals and items offered. Great portion size and good tasting food. The Pulled Pork is wonderful with awesome sides to choose from. Neat atmosphere for a family meal! I would recommend highly for a down home meal!

I rarely give bad reviews, but I have to be honest here. Maybe we just ordered the wrong thing, but I have to disagree with most reviewers. We all ordered the brisket and the meat was terrible. It didn't even taste like brisket, or even beef for that matter. I think it probably was not done because it was almost... More

Rick's serves great smoked meats and BBQ...and as a locally owned family business, it's definitely a place to eat in Terre Haute! When we travel, we prefer to find local restaurants to eat in rather than large chain places. You'll enjoy great comfort food with awesome homemade BBQ sauces. The restaurant itself is interesting, located in an old hotel...with a... More

Based on Trip Adviser reviews we stopped for a late lunch on the way home from Kansas City. I had the sliced chicken sandwich and onion rings. The chicken was hot and moist with a light smoked flavor with the sweet sauce was perfect for me, the breading on the onion ring had a great flavor. My wife had the... More

Our business catered in Ricks on September 4th for approximately 75 people and as always it was Ricks served up an awesome meal. We had pulled pork, beef brisket and beans as our choices keeping things simple. I favored the pulled pork with the sweet sauce over the beef brisket. Both meats were cooked to perfection and had a great... More

We always get our food to go. Good, friendly and efficient service. Very clean. The rib tips are great - not an item I've seen at any bbq places in Dallas. Some people have said the prices are high but you get alot of rib tips in one serving so my husband and I share an order. They offer spicy... More

We went to Ricks with a large group. They could not have been more accommodating. We sat in a large back room with neat decorations. The food quality is above average.

It's a bit on the high side price wise. But it is really good food and I like how the ordering is set up as soon as you walk in. I would definitely go again if I was in the area.
