When you have vintage Super Hero memorabillia in your restroom you have a great start with me. Ricks blew me away when checking them out for the first time over the last weekend. Although everything was not perfect they have earned my business and I...More

Hole in the wall, but what flavor! Their Burgers are completely underrated on Trip Advisor and Yelp. Fantastic staff. Our server noticed us eyeing their many potato chip selections and she immediately offered us a potato chip sampler. Once the food came the Cheese Steak...More

Had low expectations but was pleasantly surprised. Won't blow you hair back or anything but huuuuuuge portions and reasonable prices. Not a bad spot

Pretty decent, I'd go again but the search for a great nearby cheesesteak continues. The quality of the meat (Deitz & Watson) is fine and so is the portion size. But the roll...oh Lordy, there's the rub. It's a cut above Wonder bread quality, just...More

I'd recommend this place to everyone. My husband and I both loved our cheesesteaks at Ricks! Service was very good too. It's nice to eat at a family owned restaurant and not a chain.

Visited this place because I heard so much good stuff about it. I can honestly say that the food was OK, the atmosphere and service was average. Although this was a decent place I feel that they are kind of expensive and a little overrated.

Ricks has the absolute BEST cheesesteaks! I'm from the Philadelphia area, so I know what a cheesesteak should taste like. Ricks is by far, the BEST I've had in Virginia. I can't get enough!! Oh and by the way, try their Chicken Wings with the...More
