While staying at the Radisson we we advised that we should try Ricks across the street for lunch. We were not disappointed. The burgers and fries were delicious, service was fast and the employees were nice and friendly. I would definitely recommend.

This restaurant is next to our hotel. The food is diner-ish but very tasty. Good size portions, and nothing we didn’t like. We ate here a few times during our stay, and really liked it. Prices were great as well...super affordable.

Ricks was a life-saver for me as I was staying at the Raddison Hotel just south across the street from the restaurant. It is a small diner but it was an oasis for me from the high cost of a hotel breakfast for a standard breakfast of two eggs, hash browns, juice, and French toast.

I know that Rick's is a Whittier favorite, but I still wonder why. We tried them twice during our last visit and decided that we won't be back. Yes, you can taste that the burgers were grilled, but that's after they came out of the freezer. Yes, they have tomato and lettuce, and are inexpensive, but sometimes you want good,... More

Just whipped through the drive thru and ordered a cheeseburger. 2.91$. Wanted to try something other than the big chains. No drink or fries so I tasted the burger well. Bun was toasted perfectly the meat fresh and packed with lettuce and tomato. I enjoyed the burger a lot more than say a Big Mac. I'll be back.

You want a very good burger? I had a good sized one with chili. Very very tasty! While we were there it got very busy with customers coming in & out or staying in for the meal. The service is great. Very very clean. A lot of room inside & out for eating. Right now they have their place decorated... More

I've eaten here several times over the years. The burger, chili, and cherry pie were just fine after a long day. Everyone is pleasant and friendly.

Ricks has been there forever, so they must be doing something right. I must say that my all time fav - patty melt - has been kinda ruined by the addition of lettuce and tomato. Chili cheese fries are still very good.

Rick's Burgers is an icon in Uptown Whittier. Not only do they sell the best burgers and fries, but they have a great fan following. Every Christmas, they fill up the outside courtyard with elaborate decorations and a 30 foot (or so) tall tree with all the bells and whistles (and lights!). Their prices are very reasonable, well-staffed, and the... More

We ate here several times during our 10 day stay at the Whittier Radisson across the street. If you like Burger dives, old fashioned mom and pop California low cost restaurants then you may like this place. The prices were surprisingly low. They had a large menu with plenty to choose from. It was a popular local eatery with some... More
