Such a lovely Place

My family eats here often as it close by our home. They have the yummiest eggs Benedict and chop suey. If you're looking for a good hometown diner with home cooked food then this is your place. The owner and staff are awesome!

My wife and I were heading to the movies at the Berkshire mall and decided to eat dinner at Ritas. What a great little place. First off, don't expect something fancy because it is not. If it is cold outside, bring your sweater with you because it will be cool inside. Plenty of sandwiches and burgers on the menu. Breakfast... More

Excellent food, excellent service, excellent prices, not a drive-by. Breakfast lunch and dinner are all excellent.

Cute little family run restaurant. This was recommended to us by a man who had gone for dinner with friends. He was raving about the ice cream. We went for breakfast armed with a coupon from vacation Villages. The food was delicious and cooked to order. Great way to start off the day.

Just a fun experience with great music - quintessential american breakfast. We had fun (couple with a 1.5 year old toddler) and the food was very tasty, the place was clean, and the people gracious.

We we're a bit put off by the appearance both outside and inside, but were pleasantly surprised by the food quality and the friendly service.. Homemade soup (potato with bacon and cheddar) was excellent, as were the mozzarella sticks. Turkey with stuffing was very good, and the marinated steak was one of the best I've had...not one bit of fat/gristle,... More

Had not been to Rita Marie's in a very long time. Mostly because it's about 35 miles from home. Have friends who go for breakfast every Sunday AM without fail and wouldn't go anywhere else. Clearly a lot of regulars that frequent the place. Our eggs, pancakes, bacon, hash, etc. all done to perfection. Our coffee constantly refilled and done... More

We almost went back to our room for a cup of coffee but instead got in the car to enjoy the local spots. We sat on the outside bench under an umbrella enjoying our ice creams covered with sprinkles. It was fun and we felt like little kids.

On our way home from dinner, my husband and I decided to stop in for ice scream. It's a small little place where the locals go to eat. The ice scream was delicious. I had the maple walnut and mu husband the orange pineapple. Simply delicious. Stop in if you're in the area.

Very dirty mens' room. Even the soap dispenser. I will go there again. One party came in after us and was told there would be a 40 minute wait for food. One wait staff and one cook.
