Rick's has really good BBQ, but some of his dishes are a little overpriced. Taste wise, you will never be disappointed, just not enough on the plate or bowl on some orders.

This is classical hickory smoked barbeque that is consistently good. We go with our son, daughter-in-law, and my grandson and can all find something good to eat. The beans are an especially good side dish to the brisket or ribs, The chicken is moist and well flavored. GOOD FOOD!

All the meats (ribs, pulled pork, brisket and burger) were excellent. The sides were all great - especially the hash brown casserole. The only complaint was the cole slaw was a little sweet for my taste, but still good.

This is a really solid BBQ place. Decent sized portions, reasonable prices. It won't redefine BBQ, but if you want a good brisket sandwich, you could do a lot worse.

Not eating there again. Poor food presentation. They make so much advertisement for there great BBQ. They should invest in better quality. And the staff is really stuck up goodie goodie. Not coming back nor referring this to anyone..

The food wasn't even completely hot! The meat comes prepared and you can add your own sauce. The meat was cooked well but not great. The sauce tastes like spicy ketchup. I could've came on an off day but I was not impressed.

We just stopped in for a quick sandwich. The beef brisket was tender and moist and chopped the way I like it. My husband had the pulled pork and it also was tender and moist. They have 4 sauces to choose from and both of us liked the sweet hot one the best. The Cole slaw was shredded not chopped... More
