“Going back in time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

No, I am not just talking about the atmosphere, the home made food made from scratch (the desserts are heavenly) the steaks smoked all day served with a delicious garlic butter, and the 50's diner like look. I am also talking about prices. Though not cheap, for the quality and amount of food, you are definitely getting value. I can't resist the Smoked Rib Eye, but there is plenty of other choices as well. I love eating at family owned restaurants. They are almost always a cut above! The service is good the food excellent.. in fact this is making me hungry. See you there tonight!

“Steak!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Although Richi's doesn't bill themselfs as a steakhouse, hands down, they have the best steak in the Murrieta/Temecula Valley. You will leave full and satisfied! And they treat their customers like family, Linda is always roaming around and does sing along birthday acknowledgements. This is the total American Diner experience with quality food on the menu.

“Diner with great smoked meat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

Richie's is a typical diner style restaurant, with dozens upon dozens of choices for your eating enjoyment! But I am consistently drawn to any entree which includes their smoked meats...tri tip, ham, you name it, they are all good!

“So Retro!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

I like that Richie's Diner is just a few blocks away from where I live. I like the retro feel. And I like the food.. What don't I like, parking is tight.
