This small restaurant on Hartnell Avenue in Redding features home cooked food and the cooks make very good food and large portions. The owner keeps the place and bathrooms clean and the cooking area presentable. The waitress is very cordial and the owner is very friendly as well. Parking spaces are limited and the hours are for breakfast and lunch.... More

Small little place ran by wonderful people. The food is authentic home cooking...The "Oakie Scramble" is one of the best breakfasts I have had...make sure to come hungry!

Cold inside, cold food, greasy, fake creamer. Friendly people but they are living in the past that should be forgotten. The stars are for the ladies running it and their gravy.

The best biscuits and gravey in town, I stop by when I'm in the area for breakfast it's a small out of the way little cafe but the service and food make up for it . Try Rita's once and you'll come back again.

This little restaurant is appended to a strip mall laundramat. It only has 4 or 5 tables and a counter. All of the cooking is done by one woman and all waiting done by another.
