Always An Option - A Good Option

Rick's may suffer a bit because it seems old-fashioned against all the new and trendy restaurants in town, but to me, it's the standby. I know I'll get in, I know I'll like my meal (breakfast and lunch - I've never done dinner - then I go for trendy); and I know I'll like the price. Service isn't... read more

Rick's has been here for years and has become a bit iconic and a "go to" place for breakfast in Palm Springs, particularly if you like "greasy spoon" types of breakfast. The place is spotless, service is excellent, and the food is perfect. I had eggs, pancakes, coffee and orange juice. Highly recommended if you're looking for an affordable tasty... More

A nice restaurant for breakfast (and lunch?). Service was quick and pleasant, and it was well frequented by locals

I'm from Germany and I was looking for an American experience when it comes to breakfast. I was blown away by the fast and friendly service. We were sitting at the counter and didn't have to wait for a table. I advise travelers like me to do the same because you get the feel for the place and may start... More

Went for breakfast found it a little pricy but the food was good. No small sized/calorie meals. Good point - they have Cuban coffee and Cuban lunch menu items.

Had a lunch hear while vacationing with my husband and a couple of cousins during a late afternoon weekday period when then wasn't a line out the door and a long wait for a table. This is a popular diner, with diner food and diner ambiance, the kid where you take your check to the cashier at the front. Serendipitously,... More

I visited for lunch. Almost empty. The salmon salad was good. Service however was poor with the server trying to be smartie. Place needs update but is nice enough with big windows. Mens bathroom needs cleaning/remodeling. There are better places to eat oin Palm Springs.

Great quality food. Service was very slow and without much pleasantry but the quality of the ingredients made up for it. Perhaps just be careful not to ride on the back of that forever and make a little more effort to be pleasant to new guests even if they aren't your friends/regulars ? Nice meal all told

Perfect diner experience with great service, bottomless coffee and solid food. Breakfast was very good with avocado omelet and eggs perfectly done. Toast was too heavy on the substitute butter so ask for it dry.
