After reading the reviews on Citysearch, I was excited to try this restaurant. I was pretty shocked when I saw the prices. I kept in consideration that this is Las Vegas but I still felt it was overpriced. The food was incredibly bland for a Mexican restaurant. Two of my items were cold in the center, leaving me to believe that the food is not made fresh but refrigerated and then heated when served. The service was good and I was compensated for the cold food but the damage had been done. My search for an authentic Mexican restaurant in Las Vegas continues and I will not be returning.

Ricardo's Mexican Restaurant has always been my favorite Mexican restaurant in Las Vegas. From the first moment you walk in, it's obvious that Ricardo's has a unique atmosphere with the various decorations on the wall as well as the uniforms worn by the staff. The ambiance sets the mood for a nice, casual evening with family and friends. The food itself tastes great and is offered at an amazing price point. When you're first seated, you're immediately given chips and salsa (two different types of salsa) and if you're not careful, you could fill up on those alone. The menu itself is extensive and it offers all typical Mexican entree items. I usually order the same menu item (carne asada tacos) and they are consistently delicious. I've been with several friends and family members over the years and they have always enjoyed their entrees as well. the portion sizes are enough for the largest of appetites and the food itself is always tasty.

Ricardo's even offers a unique bar dining experience where the booths are custom fitted with individual flat screen tv's. In addition to the full restaurant menu, you can even order happy hour menu items during applicable times. Be sure to try one of their margaritas as I can personally attest to how amazing they are!

Three years ago, I had Ricardo's cater my birthday party and I also had them cater a corporate event last year. Both times, I was extremely pleased with not only the food and the service, but also the fact that Ricardo's was priced better than many competing restaurants. Everyone enjoyed the food and I was pleased with the personal attention that the catering department gave to me in both situations.

Given today's economy, Ricardo's is an amazing find in that it offers great food at a great price. I would highly recommend this restaurant and plan to return again shortly.

My friend and I stopped in for lunch at Ricardo's last Friday and couldn't be more pleased with the food and service. Started with chips and salsa, obviously. They have two different salsas; one is standard and the other uses roasted tomatoes which was awesome. I think we went though 2 or 3 bowls or the roasted tomato salsa. For the main dish I had the chicken enchiladas smothered with cheese and half red, half green sauce, the way I always order them at other places. They were more than willing to accommodate what my friend likes to call "a high maintenance" request. The chicken was perfectly seasoned and the beans and rice were done exceptionally well. I forget the name of what my friend ordered, but it was basically a big mexican cheese pizza. The thing was huge and while I didn't have any of it, he said it was great too. As for drinks, we both had Carta Blanca's, something a surprising amount of places in town don't have. I've heard Ricardo's has amazing margarita's but I didn't get to them on this visit, but as we loved the food so much I can say we will definitely be back...especially since they are open until 6 am! Overall, a great family-run restaurant with good food. Lived in Vegas for 7 years now and I don't know how I made it this long with out eating there.

My family has been going to Ricardo's since the first one opened in 1979 in the Meadows Mall. Our family has had many birthday and graduation dinners there, and my sister also had her rehearsal dinner there. The food is great, the staff is warm and friendly, and they even remember that we like to sit in Debbie's section when we come! : ) Best margaritas and fried ice cream in town!!!!

Love the Authentic Mexican Food, very relaxing from the welcome to the table to the serving and desert. What I especially liked at Ricardo's was the portion size, just enough to fill you up and not too much to waste. My waiter even took our left overs and without asking, went and made go to boxes. He even added some extra tortillas to our boxes. The service was always with a smile.

Decided to try Ricardos after reading current reviews, and my experience was AWFULL!!! Lousy food, flautas tasted like they were fried in old oil and soggy...couldn't even eat them.... Ordered Don Julio margaritas and received I'm still not quite sure what they served us, tasted like cheap tequila blend.

It's a bit of a walk from the strip so if you're not from around town or don?t have a car, the bus or a cab would be the way to go. The service is friendly and welcoming. The margaritas are delicious and after drinking the first half I swore not to have another one because there is no way I could fit another in since they're pretty big, but when the waiter came around again and offered me another I couldn't help myself, they just tasted that good. Needless to say after the meal I couldn't finish the second and had to share it with my partner. I had the lunch fajita?s and they were amazing, everything is so fresh and tasty. I definitely would recommend this place to anyone!

As soon as you walk into this restaurant you feel like a good time is going to be had! Everyone is wearing a smile and is having a great time. The food is always fresh, the staff very attentive and friendly plus willing to give great recommendations! The margaritas and salsa are a staple here as well as the amazing tequilla selection they stock!

I came to Ricardo's a few weeks ago for my moms 50th birthday party. We all had such a good time. The food was wonderful, the decor was true Mexican and the drinks were delicious. Thankfully, my mom had a very memorable birthday here and so did our family. This is a place we will come back to for a low key dinner with friends, or to celebrate a special occassion. Nice job Ricardo's!!!

Not great mexican, didn't really care for the salsa. Not authentic mexican, and very poorly done. Won't go back. Decor nice and they spent a lot of money on that, but they need better cooks. Service good. Drinks fine, I just was so turned off by the food everything else just didn't really register. Not memorable, won't return.
