Used to be really good -and clean but over the years it has become a hangout for "townies" -the bar is VERY loud and distracting with people yelling to each other. The restaurant is getting dingy looking and if Rick is not on the premises service is slow and the food is not very good. They do make great mai... More

Rick's Cafe has long been a staple here in town. Rick is typically at the door greeting customers/guest with his signature "Hi, welcome, Thank you for not cooking tonight". He remembers extra fortune cookies for the kids and comes to the table to chat and say hello to everyone. The staff is quick in taking orders and getting your food... More

This is my favorite Chinese food restaurant. Rick runs a tight ship - the food is always great quality and you can tell it is fresh. I recommend it highly.

Sticky floors just 15 minutes after opening. Food was so so. We invited our employees with us- not so good experience. Have to try something else.

They have a buffet at lunch time and also on Sunday nights. The food and the service are very good. You can also order off the menu if you don't want the buffet

Rick is an amazing character and his staff is very friendly and helpful, but the buffet didn't look very appetizing so I ordered from the lunch menu. The food was good and plentiful although the seasoning was a bit different than I've ever had before. Again the staff was very helpful, but when I asked for "Duck Sauce" for my... More
