We love going to Ricky's to eat. They have something for everyone. Their red chili is great! It is as good as my husband's grandmother's red chili. It is great to go in there and see the familiar faces year after year.

On our road trip to Jemez Springs, we took the scenic northern route, to drive through Taos and treat ourselves to a great lunch at Ricky's. On our travels in NM we have 4 criteria for eating out : a dish smothered in green chile every day, local customer flavor, friendly service, and $ price range. Ricky's deliver on all... More

Driving back to Taos from Santa Fe with hunger pangs. Of all the things I could have gotten to eat the only thing that came to mind with the Bronco Burger at Ricky's. Went home first and asked my wife if she wanted to go to Ricky's, of course she did. So we did. The Bronco Burger [Ricky is a... More

Nothing fancy, but good food in a restaurant that reminds me of the cafes I grew up with. My waitress was very friendly and conversational, but the waiter working when I was there was polite, but not as "down home" welcoming to the customers. I'm a Denver Broncos fan so enjoyed the team decor. I had a tasty sit down... More

We had breakfast here and two of us had the huevos ranchero with green sauce.. it was awesome. Another had same but with red sauce, also awesome. The food is wonderful. The restaurant itself is very small and with all the bodies in there it gets a bit warm and uncomfortable in spite of the outside temp being 60 degrees.... More

First night in Taos and I felt like eating some breakfast and stopped at this small place. It was busy which is always a good sign. I had the Mountain of love which is hash browns with chorizo and eggs etc... It was really good although I could feel my arteries hardening. A nice solid place to eat if you... More

In case you're confused by all the glowing reviews for all the restaurants in Taos and in case you are tempted to eat in a restaurant with lots of snazzy cars parked outside, keep this in mind: pack mentality and wooden tastebuds go hand in hand. But don't despair. Ricky's raises the bar for traditional New Mexican food. It would... More

Here's a great place for really great new Mexican food. Great menu, friendly wait staff, reasonable prices. I've been eating out in Taos for the last week and this is far and away one of the best meals I've had. Plenty of parking and a really nice little cafe. Highly recommended!
