The atmosphere is unique and the food is terrific. I absolutely love the mini tacos appetizer and the steak sandwich with a twice baked potato.

We went here on a tuesday night. They do have a nice beer selection. We started with the Nachos which were okay. The meat had no real taco flavor to it and just fell all over the place. The cheese sauce was just you average...More

It feels like you are going into a subway when you walk down the stairs. The whole atmosphere is a bit weird. We did not eat at this location but the beer was nice and cold.

Richard's is the greatest restaurant in Peoria between 2am and 4am. They have a burger with grilled cheese sandwiches as buns. Everything is massive and the portions are huge. Just don't go before 2am or you might be disappointed. Everything is pretty generic really.

This one-of-a-kind downtown Eatery is by far hard to beat. It's got great food great atmosphere and it's open late, so for those great nights when you're out with your friends and it's 4 a.m. you can still get great food. Stop in at Richards...More
