We go for breakfast although they are open thru lunch. Not the biggest place but they get in a lot of tables and have a few outside during the nice weather. Pancakes have a great flavor and a short stack are 2 that cover a big plate. A good variety of omelettes and lots of people leave with doggy boxes.... More

I couldn't finish it and packed the rest for lunch at work. They are quick and polite with the service. A great place... More

Driving up the Merrit Parkway we decided to check Trip Advisor for a place to stop for lunch. Rick's on 5 seemed like what we were looking for, and it sure was. It was easy to find but parking was a challenge. Once we got a table our delightful waitress took our order, I got a Caesar chicken wrap and... More

I used to come here all the time but, never on a weekend. To busy. So, I'll go during the week if the parking lot isn't full. This last time I wasn't happy with my omelette. I'm kinda a omelette snob. I prefer a omelette that is stuffed with the ingredients rather than flat scrambled eggs folded over with the... More

We've only been there once and waited a long time for a seat. When we were finally seated we were so close to the table next to us it was extremely uncomfortable! The food was fine but I hated the closeness. Not worth the wait.

Having the car service in Wallingford and stumbled on Rick's for breakfast. Parking was tight and the place small but they sat us right away. The selection was great and i was able to get fruit instead of toast with my eggs. I loved that. The wait staff was steady and pleasant. There is a very small counter to sit... More
