Dinner party for 26

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!

Food was average and overpriced. Server was good and friendly. Margaritas too much sweet & sour and inconsistent in taste.

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
