Richard's is known in the area for their marinated, broasted chicken. It is always tender, juicy, crispy and downright YUMM. Service is a bit slow at times, even when they are not busy, but the food is always very good. We live in the area, so have never stayed at the motel, but we frequent their restaurant. I have to admit I'm a bit biased as they "saved the day" for our wedding reception. Their menu offers chicken dinners and they do not sell buckets of chicken, but when I called in tears and asked if they would sell me a 30 piece "bucket" of chicken, explaining that I had burned the pot of chili we were serving at the reception, they briefly discussed it and then asked if I could give them an hour to cook that amount of chicken. So in my book, they are fantastic!!
We did have a "bad" experience there once. My husband ordered a well done hamburger, which they offer cooked to order. It arrived medium rare...the waitress had mixed it up with another table. This was annoying as there were only four tables in the place, but an honest mistake and our only negative experience in years of going there.
