If you go on a Saturday they have an all you can eat buffet. I would recommend going on that day so you could have a chance to try all of their wonderful foods! I got the smothered chicken, rice, greens, and black eye peas...More

Found this place looking for lunch off the I-10 fast food offerings. "Seafood" is a misnomer. This is soul food, pure and simple, and great soul food at that. Choice of meat and gravy served on rice or mashed potatoes, two sides, yummy cornbread and...More

Let's face it. Beaumont is a hole. Stay here for a few months on a work assignment and you will be sick to death of all the chain restaurants. I found myself desperately searching for something to eat one night. Literally contemplated going to sleep...More

Down home rustic atmosphere. Lunch line ladies very entertaining. Southern , soul food is excellent. A little hard to find, kind of bad part of town. A lot of cops seem to eat here. Parking a little tricky too. All worth it!

It has been awhile since I've eaten at Richard's but throughout the years the food has been consistently wonderful and the service is great. You can't beat their oxtails, smothered chops, or any of their chicken. Any side you choose will be great. I've eaten...More
