We usually go to Rick's for lunch. Only had to wait in line one time and that moved quickly. Love the mac n' cheese. Their brisket is really good. I like that they three sauces are on the table. We've found the wait staff very courteous and the place is usually clean. They 'could' use larger restrooms.

This is an interesting barbecue place. As you enter the door you approach the counter. Above there is a list of items you can order. You place your order at the counter and if eating in, you get your cup and a number to place on your table. I am thinking this may not be a great pace for barbecue.... More

We like the food here......fast service. The pulled pork was the best. Husband got the brisket and he didn't care for it at all. They have a nice selection of sides to go with your meal. Reasonable priced. Don't go there enough to give it a 5

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
