I was thinking that walking into this place on Cinco de Mayo mihgt have been a mistake. I've seen this place pretty crowded, even late at night. But, after one drink and some chips and salsa (served to us gratis) at the bar, we were led to our table near the back of the restaurant. It was a nice large... More

Great service and friendly atmosphere, Ricardo's is relatively kid-friendly while OK for couples as well. The free nachos chips and salsas served right at our table were fresh and very tasty, almost a meal in itself! The buffet had the usual Mexican fare, with adequate quality and variety. Nothing was outstanding but most dishes were satisfying. The only thing missing... More

My wife and I stayed in Las Vegas for our 20th wedding anniversary and visited this restaurant for lunch. Great atmosphere and fine dining! The hostess greeted us with a smile. The wait & bus staff were just as friendly. We dined on the lobster & shrimp enchilada - which was one of the specials for the day. Great entree'.... More

First time here and it was good from beginning to end. The margaritas were excellent! The chips were served with a bean dip, salsa, and verde sauce. Yummy! We both had burritos that were tasty and filling. Service was excellent. Good experience.

Outstanding food! Management and staff handled a sit-down, order from menu dinner party of 26 in an outstanding manner. Very accommodating. Arrangements were made by phone from home location; arrived at the restaurant for the first time for dinner. All went very well!
