Having a toddler it's hard to find nicer restaurant to have dinner at and not feel out of place with our little guy. Ricardo's food is great, I especially love the flour chips they give you as well as the freshly made corn torillas. by the time your food comes you are like oh man I am going to have an awesome lunch tomorrow because you get so full on all the other stuff. The staff is always nice and full of smiles nice little Mexican joint.

We have eaten here for 15 years. Food always, fast, good and consistent. Best chips n salsa - fried flour and corn chips. Yummy. I think we have had everything at least once. If you go after 430 most night they also give you fresh corn tortillas with butter as an appetizer.

Flautas, carnitas taco, crunchy beef taco my favorites. Best rice n beans. Shrimp cocktail more traditional Mexican style, also yummy.

Easily can get out in 20 minutes from seat to pay. Servers are efficient, not the friendliest in the world, they have good memories.

Also good to go.

The atmosphere is simple and the food is great! Like every Mexican restaurant, they bring you chips and salsa however, these are not just any chips. They are a combination of corn chips and flour chips. Amazing. The salsa has a little kick to it and its great. The chicken fajitas and chicken burritos are excellent. They also bring fresh made tortillas to the table. The service has significantly improved over the last few months so the staff is much more friendly.

I love this place for the food but the last time we went the servers totally ignored us and basically forgot about us it took awhile to get food and drink refills were impossible. Hit or miss type of restuarant!
