Great place for our daughter's first Vegas buffet! At $12.99 it was such good value and good to have a wide variety to choose from. If we weren't going to go on the rollercoaster at New York New York we would have had more! Lovely décor and atmosphere. It was our 2nd visit and we will visit again for sure.... More

We found this place in 1988 while in Vegas with a bunch of friends. It became a tradition so, each visit we stop here at least once ever since. We took friends with us this trip who had never been and they loved it as well. I pumped it up as even having Mariachi but, it was a Tuesday night... More

With my wife, children and grandchildren in Vegas, the vote was for Mexican. We turned to TripAdvisor and found Ricardo's. Two locations and the one we chose was open 24 hours. Food was okay, service should have been okay, except they had a larger crowd than expected and were short on servers. Our order got messed up and some of... More

This is our old school Mexican restating town. My wife and I have been coming here for at least 25 years. She always gets the chicken fajitas. I like to mix it up, but really like the chimichanga ranchera. Service is always good and the dining room is very nicely decorated and clean. We will return as long as the... More

Being fromTexas, Mexcian food anywhere else usually doesn't match my expectations of Tex-Mex. Ricardo's has a great menu and their food is excellent! From the guacamole, chips, and salsa to the main entrees, Ricardo's has my attention! Our friend Darren suggested that we get the "Debi" enchiladas. My sister Debi LOVED Ricardo's and her favorite was the Enchilada's Southwest. In... More

My chicken fajitas were only a five out of ten. A lot of chicken, but not as wide a choice of vegetables that I have come to expect in Fajitas. My two friends had something less gringo inspired and were very happy with the food, so on average the for food quality was closer to an eight out of ten.... More

My husband and I were married in Las Vegas in June 2015. We had 40 guests attend and we wanted to be able to provide a meal but still keep costs down. Ricardos was able to accommodate our group in a mostly private area. The front of the room opened to the center of the restaurant but the rest was... More

Looking for a place that was open late we found Ricardo's. It was delicious food. We arrived at 11:45. The waitress did not put our order in till 12:00 so we got the after-hours special for food and drinks. It was a super deal.
