    The food and service were exceptionally good. The only issue we had as two ladies is that we were seated right next to a table of 20 celebrating a birthday. The noise level was so high, we could not hear each other. We had to request To be moved to the other side of the room. After that, everything was great. Was it necessary to place us next to the large noisy group? I think not.

    This was our first time at Ricardos. It probably took about 15 minutes to get our drinks. It took less time to get our food. The food was just ok taste wise and service was mediocre. There are too many other good restaurants and we will not be back.

    Your margarita drinks are too expensive and your food too expensive and does not taste very good. I will never come back to your rip off restaurant again and if anyone ask about Ricardo's I will tell them what a rip off and lousy restaurant it is.

    Excellent and friendly service led to delicious margaritas. If you like spice ask them to add some Jalapeno to your marg. Wow. Food was great, kinda Tex-Mex style (nothing wrong with that). We will return for sure.

    We dined at this restaurant on a Sunday evening for my sister-in-law's birthday. The food was OK but not great. The margaritas however were wonderful. If you are planning on more than one, just get the large. The server was very attentive but he did get 2 of the items wrong on the order. For the price it was a fairly good dinner.

    I love coming here for lunch. The service was fantastic - both at the buffet and at my table. The lady at the buffet really tries hard to make sure you have an enjoyable meal; she's a gem. I had the buffet (as well as the table chips and salsa) and the food was good. The only issue was that the buffet's carne asada was a bit dry and seemed over cooked - but I imagine it's difficult to keep it warm without letting it dry out. I'll be coming back.

    It is really hard to find authentic Mexican food here in the valley, but this is a decent option. Being from socal with a hispanic heritage makes me super picky when it comes to Mexican cuisine, but I would take visitors here, the chili verde is great . Plus server was amazing !

    We made the reservation 12 minutes before arrival! New to Vegas from the midwest, met friends from California, Ricardo's was highly rated on OT and just down the street. Food was fabulous! Even my Cali friends found it good, and one of them is from Guadalajara. Was impressed by their professionalism and the fact that they are open 24/7!
