We actually went there with a group of about 40 and reserved the room in the back. It was fantastic. The pulled pork is great but even better was the smoked chicken. And the sweet and hot sauce is beyond tasty.

The steak was a great size, but the flavor was not as big. I also ordered mashed potatoes which were hard and the whole order could be picked up with a fork. I spoke to management about the potatoes and they said it was the best they could do which was not so good. Wish we would've just went to... More

We had a family birthday party with 15-20 people. Food was great, staff was very accommodating and had a banquet room available for our group with late notice. We plan on meeting regularly for family dinners at this fine establishment!!

Rick's has really good BBQ, but some of his dishes are a little overpriced. Taste wise, you will never be disappointed, just not enough on the plate or bowl on some orders.

This is classical hickory smoked barbeque that is consistently good. We go with our son, daughter-in-law, and my grandson and can all find something good to eat. The beans are an especially good side dish to the brisket or ribs, The chicken is moist and well flavored. GOOD FOOD!

I had been wanting to try it since I dropped my son off at ISU. You walk in and order, they will bring it to your table. Each table has 3 bar b q sauces for you to use. I got the beef brisket, which was very tender. Fall apart at the fork touch. Chicken, which was ok. And pulled... More

All the meats (ribs, pulled pork, brisket and burger) were excellent. The sides were all great - especially the hash brown casserole. The only complaint was the cole slaw was a little sweet for my taste, but still good.

This is a really solid BBQ place. Decent sized portions, reasonable prices. It won't redefine BBQ, but if you want a good brisket sandwich, you could do a lot worse.

Not eating there again. Poor food presentation. They make so much advertisement for there great BBQ. They should invest in better quality. And the staff is really stuck up goodie goodie. Not coming back nor referring this to anyone..

The food wasn't even completely hot! The meat comes prepared and you can add your own sauce. The meat was cooked well but not great. The sauce tastes like spicy ketchup. I could've came on an off day but I was not impressed.

Thank aalbrecht1
