“small town diner with good prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

this is an American - Tex-Mex diner. do not look for frills because there are none. if it's your birthday, you can wear an oversized sombrero and get your choice of sopapilla or funnel cake. it can be hit or miss with richie's. for the most part the food is good. sometimes the fish may be over cooked. but they are BIG fillets. i think the thickness of the fish has a lot to do with the cooking. the ANGUS CHOPPED STEAK has never failed to be anything but great. my personal favorite is the QUESO FLAMEADO. i always ask for extra veggies in mine as well as tortillas. i would like the tequilla that sets the flame but hawkins is dry. speaking of tortillas, they are made fresh when you order.i do not care for the enchiladas, my grand son loves them. i make my own so i am spoiled.we hit richie's about once every two weeks. they do have take out. people are very friendly and they go out of their way to make you comfortable. breakfast is served, but i don't work the right hours for breakfast. the times i have been, the coffee is good,hot and plenty of it! the eggs done just right (over ez for me). a good place to meet the locals because EVERYONE in town stops. if you wanted to make reservations for a large crowd, i am sure it would be acceptable. the only view you will see is the train as it goes by, both freight and amtrack.it's a good "bang for your buck".
