Rick's Roadhouse Restaurant Review

: Though it may look like an old-fashioned roadside barbecue shack on steroids, Rick's Roadhouse retains the reasonable prices you'd expect at a rib-and-beer place without sacrificing quality or creativity. In addition to the requisite chicken wire, the décor includes a cool indoor-outdoor bar area. If you want to keep it down-home, try the one-third-pound burger and fries, a Cuban or pulled-pork sandwich. The same goes for one of Rick's half-dozen or so specialty margaritas like the Snake Bite, flavored with jalapeño tequila. On the high end of the scale are wood-grilled steaks and seafood dishes. The deluxe combo platter is an ace choice for grazers with an appetite --- a heaving plate of sweet and lean pulled pork, slightly tough but tasty brisket, dry-rubbed baby-back ribs and sides of moist cornbread and crisp coleslaw. In keeping with the campy theme, finish with s'mores for two. Canine customers, welcomed on the outdoor patio, get their own menu.
