    Good food, good service and good prices. This is a nice little place to go to while you are visiting San Juan Capistrano. Try the fried ice cream, it is delicious!

    We found Ricardo’s Place on our way home after visiting Mexico. The flavors at Ricardo’s Place was superior to anything we tasted in Mexico. We highly recommend Ricardo’s Place. We’ll be revisiting next week.️

    Went here for taco Tuesday with my brother since he's been here a few times and says it's a really good place. Visit was worth it received quality customer service, and great taco Tuesday deals. Best bang for the buck that fills you up for about $12~. One of the best aspects of this place is the free chips + dip they give you while you wait. The churro type of dessert isssss amazing would get that everytime. Would definitely visit again.

    Came here for dinner with Fam, Friday Night. I had the carne tacos, out standing quality and well seasoned. Service was great and loved the family atmosphere. Owner stopped by our table, to say hello and make sure we where enjoying our dinner. Thumbs Up!

    Chicken Mole Enchiladas were delicious! Surfer Burrito was so large we were able to share it with our three young kids with the help of our server bringing us a few extra tortillas. Server brought bunuelos for the kids at the end. Such a sweet touch. They also had coloring sheets for the kids and brought out our food really fast. Drove from San Diego on a road trip and picked this place along our route specifically for the reviews that stated it was kid-friendly. And it was! Thank you! We'll be

    I visited Ricardo's restaurant yesterday. I had the best 7 Item Omelette you could ever imagine! It was so large I actually took the rest home. The atmosphere was great. Lots of people but not too much noise. My server, Moises, did a great job. I'll Be Back.

    My 87 year old Great Aunt highly recommended this place when my Grandpa was in town visiting. They used to come here often. We came for a late Thursday lunch; the service was exceptional for our party of 5. The nachos are mouth watering & you get to choose all your toppings. My mom said they are the best she ever had. Portion is perfect for 5 to share. The lunch specials are all impressive too. I got the chicken taco & taquitos with rice & beans. Best rice & beans I’ve ever had.

    I had no idea how good the food was here. Seen it for over twenty years and first time there.

    Ricardo's is where to go if you are a fan of guacamole and authentic Mexican food. I am pretty picky when it comes to fish and shrimp tacos but Ricardo's hit the mark. Big portions that were hot, fresh and tasty. I think most rice in Mexican restaurants taste the same. I was pleasantly surprised here as it was very flavorful. If I lived here, I'd stop once a week!

    Wonderful service from very friendly folks. The food is very tasty! Almost every Friday I stop and grab a meal to go and take it to the harbor. Perfect end of day!
