The service is great but the food is less than exciting. One taste of the fried tortilla bowl told me they need desperately to change their oil. It's Mexican American food...where is the spice??? Very disappointing.

I have been going to Senor Ric's for probably 20 years. Many people also continue to go. Friendly staff, and food and drinks are consistent. Enjoy the food and atmosphere. Only suggestion-the happy hour food is not great. Chips, salsa and beans. All could be better. The chips are not that tasty and salsa and beans are just ok.

Happy hour for the best margaritas in town! Free chips, bean dip and salsa. Good menu-freshly prepared Mexican food. There is a reason this independent restaurant still thrives and it is the owners and the staff they have trained to provide the best service to the customer.

My husband and I have been goin g to this restaurant for better than 20 years. We really appreciate Mexican food. This is more Tex Mex not too hot but ample portions delivered quickly at a reasonable price.

I am a true Mexican foodie... I could eat it every day of the week. My honey and I frequent Señor Ric's at least twice a month. It has a Mexico feel as far as the decor and atmosphere. I suggest the Chile Relano and/or the Tamales .. My honey enjoys the ground beef and chicken tacos or enchiladas.

We have been stopping by occasionally over the last twenty years. The quality never changes. My wife loves the polo magnifico because she will have leftover for lunch the next day.

We have been visiting and eating at Senor Rics for about 25 years and just love this place and the food. The service is also excellent, and has always been that way. I think one of the reasons we come here all these years is because of the quality of the service. The food is excellent. The menu has remained... More

We hadn't planned to dine here but because a favorite in the neighborhood wasn't open, it was the default. We had excellent service and the food was quite good. We would return, intentionally some other time.

We can split one of the combination plates if not too hungry, I really like the enchiladas and tostadas. My wife really likes the chili rellanos. It's a very popular place for families and we are always comfortable as a couple.

Okay...I'm a Texan and have lived in New Mexico as well so I am accustomed to some really top notch Mexican food, be it authentic, Tex-Mex. or New Mexican so I may be a bit hard on this place. The chips and salsa were fine, the guacamole was made with overripe avocados so that was a waste of money. I... More
