“worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

the food is super great and it's worth a reservation to go and enjoy. it's a small place and they always have a special .... this is not your blue plate special deal either.... they have a little bit of everything for every taste....

“A disappointment... (sadly)”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Ok..let me start by saying that Richardson's was ONCE my favorite resturant in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area! For years I could hardly wait to dine there when in the area. former Pres. Geo. Bush ate there once while campaigning for God's sake!! So when I heard they had rebuilt after the fire, I was anxous to go there last week while visiting friends. We were all super happy to see NOTHING HAD CHANGED!! The decor, everything looked as it did before the fire! What did change however was the food. Our 3 lunch entree's were terrible! ALL 3!!! The Pear Margarita's were fabulous! Our waiter was great! But collectively our food was too spicy, and too bland, and my stuffed chili was stiff and tasteless! I was sadly so unempressed that I didn't wish to return during my 6 day stay. :(

“Fantastic Southwestern Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

This restaurant was recomended to us by the hotel consierge. The meal was one of the top meals we had while visiting Phoenix. Our server recomeneded the enchiladas and the beef tat had been smoked with apple wood. Both meals were outstanding very reasonable prices.
If in Phoenix again we will definitely return to this restaurant.

“Found it by accident!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

Stopped on the spur of the moment for dinner. Sat at the bar and enjoyed the food, drinks and chatter with the bar staff. Plenty of choice when it comes to southwestern style food. It must be good - every seat was taken!

“Still just as good as the old location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

Ok... so it took me a long time to get to the new location after the old one burned down... but it is still the best Mexican food to be found anywhere in the valley... I had the special of the day, 3 enchiladas... this is a place where you eat and you still think about how good the food is a week later. Excellent.
