We were visiting Vegas from Chicago. We were looking for a nice place to eat before going to a show on the strip but didn't want to deal with the hassles and crowds of the strip. We found Ricardo's and it had great reviews so we went. I'm very glad we did. The wait staff was very good and the food was excellent. I had the menudo and a tamale. I am Mexican and the menudo was just like dad's. The tripe was not chewy, it had a great flavor, and the ingredients included hominy and pig's feet. It came with sides of lime, cilantro, onion, and pepper flakes. Just like at home. The tamale was also very good and the margarita as well. If you are in Vegas and want a great place to eat off the strip and is not expensive and crowded. This is the place. It's on Flamingo at Decatur, only about two miles from the strip.

We have been to Ricardo's 3 or 4 times. Previous visits have been good. This one, on Mother's Day--not so good. Ordered steak medium rare. Received it medium well to well. Wife ordered her's medium and it was cooked medium (that's good). Service was slow. Finished beer and was not offered another. Then finished water. It stayed empty also. Long delay for check and long delay to handle payment. Although it was Mother's day, and busy, that does not justify the problems. Probably will not return.

Ricardo's has been a favorite of ours and we're happy to know the buffet is offered every day of the week. Only question I have is why a few of our buffets were priced at $14+ and a couple $15+? And, I'm not a drinker and was surprised the drink prices were so high.
