We never have to wait for a table! In a small strip mall across from Walmart and sams club. A busy area but never crowded. Our family favorite are the flour tortilla chips, NO ONE has those! Their salsa is delicious! We've tried everything and love it all!

We went last night with a group of four folks. The place has been here for a number of years, always busy but never over crowded. Service was better than average. Food is authentic Mexican and very good size portions. The four of us ate plenty for right at $60.

We went last night after not being here for many years. The food was fine, as was the service. Unfortunately, it was a warm evening and it was apparent that the A/C was not working properly. I'm not sure if this was unusual and typically it's okay, but we won't be returning until we get cooler weather.

All the food here is good, but the Flautas and Albondigas soup really stand out as exceptional. Their flour tortilla chips are also very light and crisp, superior to what's normally served when you sit down. Fresh, hand made corn tortillas also. There are a couple of good servers here, but also a couple that just go through the motions.... More

Good consistent Mexican food. Their menudo and fresh flour tortillas are very good. another good choice for breakfast is their chorizo and eggs. The flour chips and salsa are very tasty. Always a good choice.

We have been going to Ricardo's for many years. They serve very good Mexican food and always busy. They make their Tortilla's fresh and always hot to the table. Never forget to order a Margarita!

It has been a few years since visiting this place because, quite frankly, we gave up on it due to how disappointed we were with the blandness of the entrees. The service is mediocre and they raised the prices to the point where it just was no longer worth it to dine there on a regular basis. We were first... More

my in-laws live nearby and whenever we come to visit we must have our Ricardo's fix! The food is great, margaritas excellent. They make their own tortillas on premises. And the service is really attentive. we went TWICE the week we were here for Christmas. Highly recommend.

Having a toddler it's hard to find nicer restaurant to have dinner at and not feel out of place with our little guy. Ricardo's food is great, I especially love the flour chips they give you as well as the freshly made corn torillas. by the time your food comes you are like oh man I am going to have... More
