Always good service and the food is good. I do not care for the buffet . The beans and rice are consistently good. There is a lunch menu and there are early bird specials too.

Wife and I stopped in for lunch in May. Real good buffet for the money. Everything was fresh and tasty. We will add to our must do for Vegas trips.

Excellent food, great margaritas, comfortable & friendly atmosphere, family run for over 30 years. We make at a point to eat here at least once every time we're in, or passing through, Las Vegas.

On a whim we decided to stop by Ricardo's on our recent trip to Las Vegas. We were staying at the Palms Casino and Resort, but decided we were in the mood for Mexican food. Ricardo's is much bigger than it seems from the outside, and the décor was bright and festive. We were immediately seated and served, and our... More

Ricardo's is a nostalgic place for me. I began eating at the old Trop/Eastern location when I was a young child. I remember a school friend's dad being a waiter... YEARS later, to my surprise, he still works at the remaining location. loved it then, I love it now. I can't say the service or food is mind-blowing but I... More

We wanted Mexican food without the hustle of the strip. Our motel recommended Ricardo's, a family owned restaurant in a relatively quiet part of town. The chips were fresh and came with three kinds of salsa. The green salsa was spicy and excellent. I ordered the "burrito verde", a chile verde burrito that was tasty and immense! Took half home...

It's a very good place to go for the price & the staff were very friendly so overall it was a great experience for Mexican food & I would recommend it... More

As others have said chips good, every thing else is so so at best. I had much higher expectations for this restaraunt For the price. It is very expensive for average beans, chips and the Ricardo burrito I had was that good for $13. I Will say that the service was excellent and was very happy with the staff.
