Are you kidding, this is the best cheesesteak I've had south of Philly! They put the right amount of meat and cheese "wit" onions! Hands down a place I need to visit again. Why is 58 miles from me!!!????

If you leave Rick's hungry it is your fault. The helpings are significant. Their service could be better, but the food makes up for it.

I have never eaten at this restaurant but had heard awesome things according to reviews. So I called to place an order and after several rings a young lady answered and immediately asked if I would hold. I had no problem waiting. I just didn't expect to be forgotten about. So over 7 and half minutes ( not an exaggeration... More

My family and I ate at Rick’s on Saturday, October 4, 2014 around 1:30pm – after we attended the Newport News Festival. I had the Italian steak sandwich, my wife had the regular steak and cheese and my daughter had the chicken finger meal. My sandwich was very good with lots of pepperoni and a very flavorful red sauce. My... More

I got carry away and can only speak to the food itself and not the service and atmosphere. The cheesesteaks were great and on par with Philly's. Though I personally, think the large amount of meat is a negative for the meat and cheese to roll ratio. But I was not wanting for food (as I got a large and... More

I absolutely love this family. They are the sweetest people I know. I use to go to Straight Outta Philly when they owned it I've been going to Ricks since it's been open on Jefferson & now they have another location. They are very friendly. They make you feel like you've known them all your life. Rick even comes out... More

The steak and cheese sandwiches are great! Big, meaty, juicy beef served on a soft roll. Split a small order to feed two adults. Two minor items: - get rid of the malt vinegar. That's the worse tasting vinegar I've ever had. Spend a few extra dollars and buy some decent stuff. I ruined a half an order of fries... More
