I hadn't eaten here in probably 10-12 years, so I was excited when my friend suggested that we eat there. I'm pretty sure that the place hasn't changed one bit since my last visit. It looked and felt tired. The service and the food was mediocre and was probably a bit over-priced for what you get. Sad.

Ricardo's was a top end Mexican restaurant. Gaily decorated but not garish. The menu had many choices of items I have not seen elsewhere. My Pollo de Ricardo's came with a corn dish that was delicious. A little pricey but enjoyable. They also offered smaller portions for seniors.

Ever since we arrived in Las Vegas in 1986 we've been dining Mexican at Ricardo's. It's the Tacos! They are just the best and so tasty. The buffet is good and fun when you are hungry enough. Every time we've been for lunch or dinner we always see the owner Richard walking around the tables and greeting his guests. That's... More

The quality of the meat used in the dishes and attention to its preparation sets this Mexican restaurant apart from the rest. The steak fajitas are savory and the pork enchiladas are over the top. And, those are simply my favorites - the rest of the menu is just as remarkable. From now on, this is my "must-do" Mexican restaurant... More

Stopped in for a meal on the night we arrived in Vegas, after a long travel day from the east coast. We chose Ricardos from the good reviews on Google Maps and the fact it was right down the street from our room. Staff was very friendly and took good care of all the patrons. Food was wonderful and plentiful.... More

Went for the lunch buffet, includes soft drink,coffee or tea $12.99. Buffet has a very large assortment of Mexican goodies, some better than others. I found the taco meat and the carne asada to not have any taste, just blah. But the cheese enchidas and the chili rellanos were outstanding. Really cheesy. The pico de gallo was very bland, as...

My boyfriend and I have been to several mexican restaurants in Vegas and so far had been disappointed until yesterday when we went to Ricardo's. Chips come with salsa, beans and best salsa verde I've ever had. The chips are to die for, they didn't even need any dip. As for our meal, I'm vegetarian & they made me an... More
