I miss their small little hole in the wall location when they were located on 4th Avenue! Before they moved to this new and larger location, I used to love all their po' boys and their filé gumbo. Not sure what happened with the larger...More

We've dined at Ricky P's several times (it's one of our favorites) but on our most recent visit we noticed they're "slipping" a little. Po Boys, Beans & Rice, Bread Pudding were all tasty, as usual, but the French Fries were tiny & tasteless. Also...More

I'll cut to the chase - Ricky P, in the fine tradition of southern restaurateuring, is an affable host who will serve you the best gumbo you ever had. If every gumbo you ever had was soupy - you haven't had the real thing yet!

It's a great place for brunch or lunch after church on Sunday. The food is excellent with the real tastes of Southern Louisiana cooking. The Po' Boy is the signature sandwich...but everything on the menu is good. Live music on weekends...and for the Sunday brunch.

Ricky P’s used to be a New Orleans style po-boy shop in north St Petersburg. It was basic and good. They recently made the jump to central St Pete in a nice facility that has housed a couple other restaurants. We got there early and...More

Returned to Ricky P's last night for drinks, dinner & to check out the band, which played on the outside patio. Drinks were great...one of the few places to serve an authentic "Pimm's Cup", but you do have to ask for the cucumber slice. A...More
