Lots of history and lots of good food!

We drove up to Rick's, realizing we hadn't been here and although it was not yet dinner time we parked our car in the back, entered through the back door (all will enter through the back door!) and walked past the bar area where you order food. The staff was very amiable, described the food we... read 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.

The best barbecue in Terre Haute. All of the items are great. A good light smoke and great sauces. Even the hamburger is good. Highly recommend.

From the commercials I thought this would be great since I love ribs and pulled pork, The brisket was dry and not very tender. Portions were small and the price a little high

Stopped in based on info from other reviews and they didn't disappoint. My husband and I split the 3 meat sampler platter to get a taste of it all and my favorite was the brisket and he loved the ribs. Variety of sauces to taste...even bought a bottle for home.

Went their for a quick lunch and I was hungry and Rick delivered! I had the brisket sandwich, which was tender and very good. Coupled that with some potato salad and baked beans. Serving sizes could have been a little bigger, but overall I was impressed...and I will be back again!

We were in town for a few hours and following the advice of a friend, we ate lunch at Rick's Smokehouse. It's very casual, you order at a counter and they deliver to your table. Two of us had the brisket sandwich combo (large sandwich, one side plus pickle and drink) , our third party member had the pulled pork... More

The decor is interesting. All kinds of photos and items on the walls. This is the first time I have seen a wild turkey skin. It was hanging on the wall. We had the brisket. It's flavor was very good but our sandwiches were only lukewarm. The fries were the thick kind, which I do not prefer, but they were... More
