Great place, great food. Big portions which is good for the price. Nice people. Inside could use some updating.

We go here on occasion for breakfast. It is a local gathering. Inside needs updating. Good breakfast - huge pancakes that are good. Nothing special here, but if you want a decent breakfast, it is fine.

Stopped here for Dinner last night. My Wife had the Turkey Melt Omelette, which was enormous. I had the BBQ Chicken Pilaff w/ Brocolli. The pros: the food was hot,and their portions are giant sized. The Cons:watching a Waitress off in a corner stuff her face, The Brocolli was past it's prime,and constant bickering between employees. Might give it another... More

We intended to split a meal but being hungry I thought we each ordered our own meal. My 2 egg & spuds Sr breakfast was 3 eggs, sunny side up, 6 pieces of bacon, 3 pieces of toast & over 1 lb of hash browns, for $8. The size of my husbands 3 eggs ham & cheese omelet also filled... More

Sorry people of mounds view, if this is your top rated restaurant you need to move. True the portions are large but I like flavor, good ambiance, and some life in the room. My senior 3-egg omelette was semi-flavorless and was served only with toast. Servers were nice but preferred to 'cater to the locals'. Just another truck stop in... More

RJ Riches is a fantastic family atmosphere restaurant! They offer HUGE portions of food at very reasonable prices. It may not be the newest building, but it has a kind of down home charm about it. I highly recommend this restaurant if you have a hankering for exceptional food the way that Grandma used to make it!

We get to RJ Riches every once in a while. We always get plenty of good food! The service varies though, some of the waitresses are great. Some would rather be somewhere else. We always go back though, love their pancake!

The food is fantastic. Large portions, appropriately priced. Our past few trips have left us questioning the cleanliness of the restaurant. Our cups come with a sticky feeling to them, the restaurant itself has a bit of a 'smell' to it. The tables are always sticky - not because syrup was left on the table, but because the rag they...

By the looks of the parking lot when we arrived we knew that the place had to be great for breakfast there was a line but you were seated fairly quickly the portions are huge but very good if you want pancakes just order one you will probably not be able to eat the whole thing
