Ricky's West has been around for a long time. They always do a steady business. In a town with lots of locally owned hamburger and hot dog joints Ricky's can hold its own. Ricky's has good hamburgers and french fries. But when I go to Ricky's I always get a footlong hot dog and onion rings. It's worth it.

This location is just around the corner from our house. On warm days we often walk there as it is 10 minutes from our house and we make use of the drive through as well. On a recent January day it was 75 degrees (why I love the south) and I decided to walk over for lunch. They are open... More

Spartanburg has a bunch of sandwich shops and grills that are "old school". This is one of them, not the best but good. Hot Dogs are OK, small wiener, steamed bun, good homemade chili. Onion rings are a little greasy but good homemade onion rings. Pinto beans are nothing special but when coupled with fried bologna, corn muffin, raw onion,... More

Best hotdogs in Spartanburg, I love their peppery chili, and the slaw is good. I always love to get both on my hotdog, and a side of chili for my fries.

Have been going to this dog house pretty much since they opened. The homemade chili is to die for. You just can't beat their hot dogs & hamburgers.

I love a good hot dog. Was told this was a good restaurant. Had 2 dogs with chili, cheese and mustard. Chili was peppery spicy - a tad heavy on the black pepper, but decent. Seemed like the buns were steamed and I like that instead of just putting the dog and condiments in a cold bun. French fries are... More
