We were looking forward to a return visit to Richards after dining here previously. My wife had the hamburger steak and I ordered the ribeye. We both ordered grilled broccoli. Our meals were delicious and service was superb.

This is our second time here. Went with the lunch special and had one of the best pork chops ever plus steamed cabbage. Friendly staff, neat clean little establishment. We live in Lavonia and definitely will be back again.

This is a very short review, you must eat a Richard’s Burger. 8oz. of pure heaven. Looks like a dive, good beer and friendly service. Very popular with locals.

If you are not a local then don’t go. Very unwelcoming and very rude staff. Food was good but never will we return. This place gave off an awkward and uneasy feeling.
