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.

Food was ok, but our server was distracted by a large table that he was also serving, which impacted our service. Not worth the money tonight.

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.

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.”
