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.

Very good smoked pork, ribs, etc. Hash-brown casserole is delicious. Nice atmosphere, friendly service.

We love getting our ribs from here because they are so meaty and the BBQ sauce is amazingly great! Country atmosphere and great place to get dinner for carry out or eat in.

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

I have gone to Rick's Smokehouse several times while visiting Rose Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute. Both times with a group of at least twenty. We're all of the opinion the that the ribs are finger licking delicious. Other foods are very good, as well. The service is fast and good. The pricing is very reasonable. You go... More

Was looking forward to trying the food here, but was not impressed. The young staff should not have been left unsupervised. I saw the front line staff lifting lids off of the steam table and picking up whatever they wanted to toss in their mouth. Cooks with their gloves still on,roaming around the front of facility touching whatever. The hashbrown... More

We tried Rick's on a Friday night, and were very happy with the choice. We sort of ordered 'family style', sharing quart sized helpings of potato salad, baked beans and mac and cheese, along with a couple of full racks of ribs, and one pork sandwich. The ribs were fantastic--melt in your mouth. Several of us noted how meaty they... More

I have given this place several tries over the past 4 years. The potato salad is nasty. The rib tips are fatty. The regular ribs are OK. The chicken was good on one occasion however, tough and tasteless on another. The Cole slaw is, generally, just OK. But, on the same visit the chicken was tough and tasteless the Cole... More

We have talked about going here for years and we finally did. Most of us had the ribs, which were tender and delicious. I combined the sweet and mild sauces. The kids all loved the ribs too. My husband had the 3 meat combo and said the brisquit was the best. I liked the hash brown casserole as a side.

Thank Eugenna
