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.

Steak fajitas order was delicious without the accompanying items. Meaning very flavorful meat. Margaritas were not too sweet. Will return soon. Everything was very fresh

Raul was right on top of everything. Never an empty plate nor glass. Very attentive as always - he knows when and when not to come ask how we are doing. He very much enjoys his work and it shows. See you again soon!

As always, the quality of the food was excellent, the staff was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient and the other patrons were obviously enjoying themselves. Ricardo's is one of our favorite places for gatherings for both family and friend events!

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.

We loved the food reminded us of home in SoCal. Our waiter was an older gentleman who knew his way around and helped us choose a tasty lunch from the menu. We are definitely coming back. Also the Mariachi Duo were very entertaining. Good job Guys Thanks from Mitch and Jen.

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 were celebrating a 21st birthday. Service was great and the food was good. I had a Cadillac margarita and then À la cart shredded beef taco. We ordered 1 child’s menu plate and three adult smothered burrito combos. We’ll be back.

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!

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.

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.
