You call this swill chili? Where’s the beef? This brown greasy pile is mostly chili powder and pepper. Eat one of these dogs and make your next stop the store across the street for tums and alkaline seltzer. Maybe I could recommend this joint if...I were drunk enough. I don’t drink. Yuckaroo...More

Ricky's is a great place to get hot dogs. We like the way they make them and when you order fries they give you plenty. Their slaw is good on the dog and they are quick with their service.

I have ate these hotdogs for years and they are extra delicious! Just plain great hotdogs. Get a chili cheese with mustard, chili and onions on it and man you are all set! Great hotdogs and food! I have never been disappointed!

Good hot dogs and fries. Chili is a little spicy. Why does this review has to be so long? I won't go there in the future.

Ricky's has good hamburgers and such but is better known for their hotdogs with chili which has a little bite. Fries, onion rings and slaw all good and priced right.

Ran in for a quick bite for dinner. Good old fashioned hamburger and hot dogs. Service friendly and helpful. Price for 3 hot dogs, cheeseburger and fries around $15. Don't miss out.

Ricky's West has been around for a long time. They always do a steady business. In a town with lots of locally owned hamburger and hot dog joints Ricky's can hold its own. Ricky's has good hamburgers and french fries. But when I go to...Ricky's I always get a footlong hot dog and onion rings. It's worth it.More
