What a great place to eat, another Open table gem. When we arrived we were seated immediately, the drinks arrived to the table fast. we ordered the large house Margarita too much to drink but delicious. The food was amazing, the atmosphere was fantastic, the owner was visiting with the guests. Just a great experience.

The Shedded beef tasted burned. The drinks were good. Which was disappointing because I've always had good food before.

Honestly the food looked great, but it just wasn’t something I’d want again. The server was not attentive. barely came by once we got our appetizer. I will say thank goodness for the guy that came around to clean tables! He was the sweetest and made sure we were okay (also refilled our waters at one point), but that just can’t make up for how badly everything else was. Like my Uber driver said, “if you pull up to a place on a Friday night and it’s not busy, it’s not a good sign.”

I haven't been to Ricardo's in many years though I was a frequent diner up until about 15 years ago. The service and quality have certainly endured and if anything gotten better over the years. It's 150 mile drive for me so I may not be back often, but I will be back.
The food is excellent as is the service. There is plenty of seating for a couple or a large group. We were a group of 15 and even with the normal confusion of people deciding on a menu item the servers did the whole thing with style and the food all came out together.
Highly recommended.

Thanks for spoiling my birthday celebration dinner with my family, waiter was not sincere nor concern about us or the special occasion other than what to order, atmosphere just milking me of my money, expected music, non around, food was great, but the atmosphere was flat, the waiter did not serve a cake or ice cream, no nothing, ruin my evening. Family disappointed, heard reviews how good, but was no where near what was expected. I'll celebrate someplace else next time, You just lost me as client/contract for bringing others to your establishment. I will not be returning.

Always a good choice when out of towners come to visit. The optional buffet always works for those who can't make up their minds. Margueritas are good as well

Had reservations for party of 12 showed up a little early, restaurant was empty and they seemed surprised that we were there. Service was not good- had to continually ask for refills, food orders got mixed up. Then at the end served the birthday dessert to the birthday person but didnt ask anyone else if they wanted anything. Then brought the check. Food waa bland. Margaritas were good though.

We had to wait for over 20 minutes for our waiter to acknowledge us and then another 15 movies for him to come and take our order. The lunch specials are a joke! I preferred the chicken fajitas and it came with 4 slices of chicken that were super dry! Don't waste your time or money, go to Juan's Flaming Fajitas instead of you want good service and food.
