We walked into Richie's and we're greeted with friendly faces. We were brought to our table quickly. The waitress couldn't have been nicer. The food is PERFECT! Absolutely amazing. Cannot recommend this place enough. A proper traditional diner experience!!

This is a great place for both large and small groups. The service is impeccable. Their prices are very easy on the wallet and their menu and daily specials are wonderful. They have a smoker out front for steaks and tri-tip and even veggies. We...More

From my experience at Richie there is no dedicated kitchen so it's all contaminated. If you are only sensitive you might be fine. But I stay clear of fries there.
Are your french french gluten free. are the fried in a dedicated fryer? thank you
