Their chicken fried steak sandwich is awesome! And their hamburgers are good, too! If you dine inside, you get a free ice cream cone or cup. Nice touch!

We go to this restaurant a lot, food is good, portions are great and it is close to shopping, etc. They have new table and chairs and that is really nice.

We really liked the burgers. Unique meat. Fresh ingrediants. Not crazy about the fries. Place was clean and staff friendly. Kids liked the ice cream. It reminds you of Diary Queen in a small town. We'll go again for sure.

The burger quality is good. Although this place and all of the other locations look they are stuck in 1985. Almost $10 for a burger, fries and drink. I guess if you don't mind it you will love it but there are many other same-quality options available nearby.

We drove past whataburger and should have stopped there. Rick and Carolyn's was very plain. Waffle fries were good but the burger was very average or below.

If you want a burger R and C's in good. Service is fast and the product is better than the national chains, however, it is still fast food and just a burger joint.

Burger was OK but the fries were cold and soggy. I will choose another burger place when back in the area.

Stopped in today for lunch. It was busy. The burgers & fries were great. I saw some people ordering steak fingers and chicken. It also looked very good. We will be going back!

We ordered a To-go order here recently and had it delivered. The food was beyond amazing and we will be getting food from there again. We ordered hamburgers and chili cheese fries. They were both portioned at a great size! Can't wait to order again.

It was so close to perfect, I have to give this place a 5 Star rating, regardless of the small letdown I experienced. The staff is friendly, and that's a plus. The burger meat quality is above average. The ingredients are fresh. Food is cooked after you order. Not precooked like typical fast food. A slightly longer wait is always... More
