This tiny restaurant is a local hangout. The stuffed sopapia (?) was wonderful. Another friend ordered chicken fried steak and said it was really good. I would eat here again. The staff were friendly and quick to serve.

We stopped in for an early dinner, everything was great. The food took a little longer but the waitress told us that everything is cooked to order. The chips were made just for us, they were perfectly crispy. They serve breakfast all day, the kids had breakfast for dinner and were in heaven. The French toast was delicious. Tacos, enchiladas,...

Visited Ricky's upon a friends request. We ordered a serving of Nachos, very good. A vegetarian burrito, good and a serving of Enchiladas, very good! The taco chips are home made and you can definetly tell. The service was fantastic. A small, cozy and clean place to eat in Taos!

Friendly, great food - just the place to go for breakfast with a long drive ahead. Or for that matter, if you don't.

This is a great little diner with good breakfast meals and really friendly service. Great huevos rancheros! My three year old loved his happy pancakes.

We love going to Ricky's to eat. They have something for everyone. Their red chili is great! It is as good as my husband's grandmother's red chili. It is great to go in there and see the familiar faces year after year.

On our travels in NM we have 4 criteria for eating out : a dish smothered in green chile every day, local customer flavor, friendly service, and $ price range. Ricky's deliver on all... More

Driving back to Taos from Santa Fe with hunger pangs. Of all the things I could have gotten to eat the only thing that came to mind with the Bronco Burger at Ricky's. Went home first and asked my wife if she wanted to go to Ricky's, of course she did. So we did. The Bronco Burger [Ricky is a... More
