“Great place to enjoy lunch outside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

Our visit started off poorly with the designated waiter never coming to see us. A very friendly waiter came to our assistance and made everything right and provided excellent service. We sat outside at a table under an umbrella - a true treat for northerners escaping winter. We had pork sliders, a rueben (the best we've ever had!), coffee and ice tea). The waiter accomodated a dairy problem and provided a side salad at no extra cost.

“Really enjoyed our first time at Ric's Cafe.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

We tried Ric's for lunch and were very glad we did. It was a beautiful day and we thought we would request a patio table. The wait was not long and we were very happy with our service and even happier with our meal. The servers were attentive and prompt and our meal was plentiful and very tasty. My husband orderd the Pasta dish with chicken, shrimp and sausage and really liked it. I had the Rueben sandwich with fries and enjoyed mine as well. Our cousin enjoyed her Cheese Steak sandwich and commented on the really good flavor of the carmelized onions complimenting the tender steak. The fries were all very good and we would recommend our choices to others. We look forward to trying Ric's again soon.

“Quiet surrondings”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

We arrived about 5:30 Saturday night and there were only a few tables occupied. The server was very good. My filet was very small. My husband's prime rib was barely visible. The mashed potatoes were too too tasty. The veggies and salads were very good. The creme brulee was one of the very best anywhere in Arizona. One server let us know that our booth was soon to be reserved for another reservation by placing a reserved card on both sides of our booth. We felt we were being hurried and for the most part the restaurant was empty. All in all we probably won't be rushing back anytime soon.

“Off the beaten track in the foothills”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

Ric's is a place to look for if you are a local and haven't been. It is easy to find at the intersection of Craycroft and River. It has indoor and outdoor seating and a great selection of menu items. I particularly like the crabcakes.
