Just downstairs from the hot new Casanova restaurant is this more casual and less-spendy eatery. Its regional American cuisine has southwestern accents with dishes like Grilled Salmon with a Berry Salsa and Baby Back Ribs with a Prickly Pear Barbecue Sauce, but you will also find a full range of salads, sandwiches, burgers and pastas to suit any taste. The dining room has a southwestern feel too, with subdued desert hues and casual furnishings. Patio dining is also available. On weekends, live jazz adds to your dining experience.
I must say that Ric's Cafe is Tucson's best keep secret. The menu was alitte small but it still contained a good verity especially in the seafood area. The prices were very reasonable and the food was excellent. The wait staff was very friendly. Listening to the Jazz band and dining on the spacious patio was very relaxing. I would recommend this resturant to anyone looking for a relaxing peaceful dinner. Great place for a first date!
My first visit to Ric’s café today will be my last. I got the $50 for $25 deal at Tucson half off and it’s a good thing since everything on the menu is extremely overpriced. Our waitress came by to take the drink order after 10 minutes. 10 more minutes past before they were delivered and our food order was placed. 20 minutes later we received rolls that if thrown across the table could cause a major head wound they were so hard. We finally got our $9 crab cake appetizer, two very tiny fishy tasting crab cakes. Our finally food came but at an outrageous price and wait and since almost all the other patrons are over the age of 70 I suggest they stop messing around, these people don’t have allot of time left.
We waited an hour to be served with only fair food...We complained and the waitress did give us a complimentary glass of wine after we insisted....The owner did not apologize for the lack of service and was dressed inappropriately....Spend your money on a nicer place with better service and food.
Ric's has a wonderful patio where live music is played every Saturday. Complimenting the fantastic food and wonderful atmosphere are an excellent wait staff. My wife and I love to sit on the patio on Saturday night, sip wine and listen to some great music!
The reason we frequent Ric's is for the convenience. We honestly don't know why, other than that, we keep returning. Our ongoing complaint is padding the bill prices. This seems to be a constant concern among the regulars that visit Ric's. We aren't sure why this happens, other than waiting to see if we catch it or as explained to us one time - the prices in the computer had been changed and the menu prices had not. Our reply is: well, then change one or the other. The service is also questionable. It varies on o.k. I'll wait on your table if the owner tells me to or I won't even if the owner tells me to. In addition to this, the owner will wait tables when this benefit should be passed on to the staff so they can collect the tips instead of the owner. Sooooooo, call us crazy for returning but at the end of a day, a short drive is worth something.
My primary complaint is that Ric's has incredibly slow service. Secondary complaint is that the food is overpriced and lackluster. My husband and I, who live in Tucson, went to see a friend who performed on a Saturday night. While the Fat-tire beer battered onion rings were decent, the ribs were tough and Caesar salad small and limp. Sitting outside to listen to the jazz music while watching the sun set was the best part of our whole evening, (i.e. it made the 35 minutes we waited for our onion rings and the 55 minutes we waited for our salad pass by faster).
More redneck than red wine, this working class watering hole has been here since 1934. It's the only bar in
Tucson that opens at 6a and, believe it or not, that's because they really get customers at that hour. ...
This used to be Tucson's avant garde political theater, presenting plays about the plight of Mexican immigrants and other social
issues. Now it's more romantic comedy and musical, but every once in a while, artistic director Susan Claasen presents ...
As the name Borderlands Theater implies, this small professional theater focuses on, but not limits itself to, the culture of
