Rick's Dessert Diner
This small restaurant is entirely devoted to dessert. The dining area is a classic 1950s style. The booths and counter stools are done in chrome and pink-and-black vinyl. The huge jukebox plays doo-wop, early rock classics and the occasional bubble gum pop tune. The desserts are memorable. Pies of all kinds are lined up in the display cases, along with towering layer cakes. A couple of slices of chocolate cake oozing with two kinds of chocolate or lemon meringue pie can be meals in themselves. Be sure to bring cash as credit cards are not accepted.
Everything is good here. The pies are incredible. You won't find a better place for dessert in the area. The location is nice. Easy to get to. Plus there's free parking on the street and around the corner. The place was kinda dirty, but i guess people like that. I don't, but i'll still go for the pie.
I moved to Sactown in 1998, and ate often here, with oustanding results. I even ordered cakes from them for my wedding, which were wonderful. However, over the last few years this place has become very hit and miss. Once night, delicous, but more often, just mediocre or sometimes downright bad. I think they must have different people making their stuff. Not to mention the staff looks like they just got out of drug rehab.
I have started to avoid this place....its not what it used to be.
Now there is a gay bar nextdoor, which makes the ambience all that much more interesting.
The desserts were fantastic.. I was on a late night sweets hunt and i saw this place in Sacramento magazine. It was the only place close to my house that was still open, and the best thing was that it was a dessert bar. I drove over and got the best cake I've had period. I told my mom about it and we went together the next weekend.. needless to say we were hooked.
I always heard this was the place for desserts in Sacramento. First time, I got some banana cake, which was mediocre at best. Thought I would try it once more. I got some sort of mint Andes cake, my wife got a cheesecake. The Andes cake was literally Andes cake smushed in some basic chocolate case. The cheesecake was terrible - said New York style - I'm pretty sure nobody know what New York Style cheesecake is at this place. Overall, the place is expensive and the cakes are pretty bad. There are better desserts just down the road at some of the local cafes. Nothing here a 10 year old kid couldn't make. Don't waste your time or money. Plus, it is right next to a loud, open bar.
I visited Ricks with several of my closest friends, we all got a different dessert, and therefore I got to try a little taste of everything, and I must say that the food was AWEFUL! I practically had to hold myself from puking up the garbage that I had swallowed. On top of that the dishes were dirty, the table sticky, and the service mediocre. I do not suggest trying the food here.. unless u dont mind coming down with hepatitis.
Ewww... this place smelled like sanitation isn't their highest priority. The desserts are pretty, but not worth the $10 price tag. I had a very stale (and not too yummy) piece of cake, served by a despondent teenager. There isn't table service-- wait at the cash register for someone to take your order fast-food style.
Do NOT come here right after dinner. You won't be able to finish your dessert! Rick's makes everything they serve, and it's all made from real, fresh ingredients. The pies are fruity, the cakes are rich and decadent. Yes, the lines can be long, but they're well worth the wait. Tip: order ahead for special occassions. Their fruit torte goes over really well at office pot-lucks.
