Went for breakfast. Good variety and fast service. We choose Senior special. Great. Parking fine and wheel chair accessible. Good for lunch and dinner. Prices reasonable. They make fresh tri tip every day and the aroma is fantastic.

Richies diner is really just an average diner. Nothing really special about this place. But the BBQ is excellent!! It looks like they smoke there meat outside the front door. Also I feel it's a little pricey too.
