Good food, great traditional atmosphere

We loved this restaurant. The waiter was friendly and professional. The food was delicious. It's old school Mexican American - meaning that it's Mexican designed for Americans, which we are, so we liked it. They do have habanero salsa by request if you're inclined toward the spicy. We sat in... read more

My wife and I were looking for good food off of the strip and came across some good reviews for Ricardo's and decided to try it out. First, let me say its not the fanciest place we have eaten but the food and the service was some of the best we had in Vegas. We were served by Freddie, and... More

Since I have a taste for menudo, the wife always searches out places that 1) have it and 2) are good at it. This is the place. I CANNOT stress how wonderful the menudo at Ricardo’s is. We went right around lunch and the peak of the rush was over, so we were seated right away. The place is decked... More

We had lunch at Ricardo's, and everything was delicious. The menu has a large selection of food, and the service was excellent. The prices were reasonable. The atmosphere was nicely done, the basic décor that you'd find in a Mexican restaurant. My understanding is that this is a family-run business that's been around for about 30 years - they must...

My spouse and I ate here on our last day in Vegas and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent and the food was even better. The drinks were great, and so were the chips and salsa. If you are looking for good Mexican food, this is the place to go.

Four of us had been working an event for the last 8 days eating McDonald's sponsored food and staying at an off the strip hotel/casino witch had 8 restaurants of fairly pedestrian food. We needed a change! I choose Ricardo's based on Trip Advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. The chips and dips (cheese, retried, salsa) were great and replenished... More
