“Very Worthy visit.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

Talk about turning junk into treasure, well this is the place. The things this shop does is really a tribute to the staff. These folks work all day and allow visitors, and seem to be content with tourist coming in and out all day, along with the filming of the show. Example, met and had picture with Ron Dale. He had just accepted a machine from a customer, and had put it in the junk lot. While he was wishing the customer farewell, visitors, including myself asked for pictures with him, he was more than glad to do it and made an effort to make us feel welcome. You sure don't get a lot of this in Las Vegas, period, and other attractions don't make you feel quit as welcome except one other, Counts Kustoms. Brettley was outside in the parking lot with his dog Ally, working obliviously with all the visitors on the lot, and was very friendly. Ally is a great pet, and allowed folks to pet her, all the while staying within eye sight of Brettley. The shop tour is great, and you will see items from the show here too, along with souveniors that can be purchased in the show room. All in all, probably one of the great places and people to visit when in Las Vegas, Very refreshing.

“What a class act!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

We were on a really tight schedule but I am such a fan of this show that I wanted to stop by for a few minutes and check it out. Also, I had heard that the Pawn Shop was a total waste of time. Anyway, this was a really neat experience. We kind of joined in with a tour group since there was just 2 of us and they didn't mind. The people on the show are so friendly and down to earth. It's so refreshing to see that the "celebrity" nature of the show hasn't gone to their heads. Tyler is a really neat young man. I hope he does take over the business. We saw Rick but he was running around 100 mph like he does on the show but he took the time to wave. All in all this place is 100% class!! Keep up the great work guys.

“Rick's Restorations”

Stopped in to see the shop. Everyone from the show was there. They were working and they were all very friendly and made us feel welcome. A much better experience than our visit to Gold & Silver Pawn Shop. I highly recommend you stop by Rick's when you're in Vegas.

“COOL TO SEE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Rick's Restorations was pretty cool to see. The tour guide kept it fun. We got to see where it all happens along with some of the familiar faces we knew from the TV show. The keep it very fast paced as there were different groups of people arriving all of the time. It only took about 10 minutes to see everything so it is easy enough to fit in somewhere between lunch and a show. I think it was worth seeing.
