This is a great place to grab a quick lunch or dinner alone or with family and friends. Prices are good, service is great, portions are large and the food is excellent! They have something for everyone. I am lucky enough to eat at Rick's at least once a week but we have also had the pleasure of using him... More

I really enjoy this BBQ but my wife does not care for it. Some people love it, others don't. I guess it depends on what style of BBQ you grew up with. I really enjoy the Collards. I guess I should point out my wife is from Up state New York and she does not like collards or greens. It's... More

Service left much to be desired. Three male high school age students were running the restaurant. There were no adults anywhere supervising these young men. They sat in the dining area most of the time laughing and carrying on. Discussing their weekend plans, females, etc. At one point two of them were wrestling around in the chairs. Food was not...

Never expect anything but the tastiest BBQ ever put in your mouth. Sides are good some better than others. But the beans are outstanding. Take home some sauce.

I only review according to my experience. First off we went around 4:30pm on a Thursday so we expected it to be slow. The place at that time of day was empty but the friendly staff had fun with it and told us we could sit anywhere. The menu is on the end of the counter and Austin was quick... More

We enjoy their baby back ribs as well as the home style side dishes. We usually call in for carry out and the service has always been good.

Common place to eat fast at reasonable price. The meat of the barbecue apparently was cooked before grilling what I didnt like much. Just grilled is more tasty.

We were pressed for time, hungry and rather tired of BBQ that lacked character and skill at the smoker. We had never tried Rick's .... no reason, just never tried it. This time we decided to give it a try since we had to drive by it anyway. I ordered a combo of pulled pork and dark meat chicken with... More

If you like fall of the bone ribs, great pulled pork or smoked chicken, then you have to have Rick's BBQ! Love their sides too...I'm partial to the mac n cheese, green beans, and corn salad (which is like 3 bean salad, only better!) The staff is super friendly and the service is super fast and the prices are less... More

Our first visit. We asked some of the local people to recommend a restaurant for dinner and they all recommended Rick's so we tried it. When we walked in we almost walked out because it didn't look very nice but we're glad we stayed to try it. You get a tray, fill your cup with beverage, then look at the... More
