Great for breakfast. Never been there for lunch. I had a chili omelette. Fantastic. Could only eat half. I had the other half the next day. Very fast service. I definitely recommend this place.

Didn’t like the breakfast....too much grease and the toast was not right. Coffee was good, food was not as ok, but not going back. Changed from the past Rick’s breakfast. Service was ok, no complaints there.
