My last night in vegas and I really wanted to mexican food. We stopped in around 7pm on Friday night and got seated right away. Our server and server assistants were awesome! The service and food was great! We started with the jalapeno poppers, then had a chimichanga and my boyfriend had the ranchero burrito. The rice and beans that... More

We have great Mexican food in San Antonio so when I'm in Vegas I can't mess around. Ricardo's Mexican cuisine is EXCELLENT! Everything comes out beautiful, hot and delicious. Southwest enchiladas with red sauce are my favorite. If you want green sauce, they will substitute...they aim to please. Shake it up a bit and try one of their Coconut Margaritas... More

I am a San Diego native - my nephew and I went to this restaurant on a recommendation and its trip advisor and Yelp reviews - DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY! It was absolutely the worst imitation of Mexican food. The salsas were all disgusting stewed tomatoes - no cilantro in any of it and no spice or heat- my nephew... More

We were driving into Vegas late one night and craved Mexican but didn't want to deal with traffic on strip or dodge in and out of hotels to fine one. This was on the "Around Me" app so we stopped in. Huge place- not crowded. Sat right away. Plenty of helpful staff that both greeted us and tended our table.... More

Good service and reasonable prices. Must have the shrimp fajitas. Well prepared and delicious. My wife had her favorite, Chile reinos and said they were about the best she ever had.

We always go to Ricardo's when we come to Vegas. The food is great and the staff is friendly and attentive. It is worth the short trip off the Strip!

We're from Switzerland, where nothing is free, so we were thrilled that not only did we get free chips and salsa but that there were two kinds of salsa (green and red) and bean dip. We ate two full bowls of chips. My burrito (pork) was spectacular. Truly. So delicious. My only complaint was there was lettuce in the guacamole.... More

This is another great breakfast place. Food is good and the service is good. Although, on Sunday Mornings they could get a little help for the bartender as they wait the tables and tend the bar.

Typical authentic Mexican menu with exceptional service, excellent food quality, preparation and quantity, and superb service at this family owned eatery renowned with locals. We traveled from Henderson over 1/2 hour to get here,, but the trip was worth it. Our family members go here all of the time when they want Mexican food. The fajitas were great, the homemade...
