Just ok

I have eaten at Richard's on and off for many years now. I usually go there for steak sandwiches. This last time the steak was so chopped up into small bits it was very dried out. The sauce was just thrown on top which made it even drier. The only thing I liked was the pickle and the roll. It... read more

This place has been incredible for decades! Great hot dogs, burgers and steak sandwiches. The fries are perfect. Super milk shakes. It is a cinder block building on a cinder parking lot. Carry out only, take it home, eat in the car or on the two picnic benches. There are picture from the '55 flood and high school kids from... More

I believe we paid about $7 for a banana split. The price wasn't listed anywhere, but just figuring out from the cost of the other items....It was about $7. They were pretty busy when we came in, it was hot in there and they had the banana bunch located over by the kitchen area. The whole bunch was pretty brown... More

Love Richard's for quick, casual drive-in food. They have the smoothest, creamiest soft ice cream, and the thickest milkshakes. A local tradition. No indoor seating and cash only, but when the weather is warmer, it's nice to sit outside with an ice cream cone and imagine what this place looked like when the waitstaff roller skated out to the parking...

Some things never change ... thank God! Richard's is just as it was decades ago. Get you food, get it quick, get a good price, eat in your car or the picnic bench.

why bother, no personality in the place,You feel like you are bothering the workers by placing an order and then have to deal with the their attitude! Take a good look at who the customers are around you and use your own judgement. Mexicans working all not legal, so if you want a mexican version of a hamburger/hot dog this... More

If your thing is a greasy spoon sorta and I mean floating in grease food the. Run right over.. The food was just that a grease pit.. Not that cheap.. But I guess that's the appeal of this type of food.. None the less look at the people eating there before you park and walk in..

Located in Forks Twp., usually go there with family after sporting events at nearby township park and community center. Very good food and very resonable. Always run into local people who enjoy Richard's also.

You must try the Gyros. They are awesome!!! Other things are good too, like their ice cream, milkshakes, hot dogs, wings, pierogies, fries, etc but the Gyros are soooo good!
