    The food at Ricardo's is authentic and flavorfiul. I recommend the Ensenada Chile Relleno with Carne Asada...you'll want to come back for this one! Add the guacamole and a Margarita...it's great. Enjoy!!!

    This place was so yummy. I had their albondigas soup. It was so tasty and a burrito which was yummy as well. The service here was very good even though I was take out. We'll be coming back

    Visited Ricardo's with a couple of dear friends of mine, and had a great time. The atmosphere was inviting, the staff was warm and friendly (including the owner), the service was excellent and the food was first rate! Great family owned restaurant!

    This is the best mexican restaraunt i have been too in orange county, priced reasonably , free chips and salsa, amazing salsa!!! give me the ingredients! The employees there are super super nice and very attentive. All you people that gave these guys less that 5 stars...shame on you! One reason i love this place is i can go in an out and someone always says goodbye, and sometimes you even get a free tequila taste! It's like family when ever my family goes there.

    The mole here is fantastic, it’s a sauce originally from Oaxaca, a little spice and very little chocolate perfectly balanced at Ricardo’s. Pollo con Mole or the Mole Enchildas. Another favorite of mine is the ceviche and their guacamole. Awesome Mexican food here.

    What great service! I travel all the way from Long Beach to eat at Ricardo Place! Since the day we started going to Ricardo’s Place my food has been fantastic. I’ve never been disappointed. The Mexican Rice is perfectly cooked my burrito has always been delicious. Now, when we crave Mexican Food, we drive all the way to Ricardo’s Place. I will not go anywhere else even if it is near me. I brag about Ricardo’s to friends and even to guests coming in from out of town. Great food and service!!!

    Nothing better than the commitment of anything family-owned and operated. The passion comes through your food and service ...showing the extension of the Heart of the a great Owner. A definite tribute to your grandma Juana's authentic homestyle recipe when you prepare and allow us to experience ... as if we are joining your "family's table"... With Appreciation
