We've been watching the storm closely over the past few days and it appears that we'll remain open unless we lose power or we feel that conditions may become unsafe for our employees.
We continually joke on our page how we are ALWAYS open with an asterisk explaining the few exceptions such as unsafe conditions or Christmas and Thanksgiving. We joke about it but we take it seriously.
If we do close, we will be sure to update that information on social media.
Thank you for all of your continued patronage! Stay Safe everyone! 🙏🏻

If you’ve had the pleasure to have met Tessa you would know just how amazing of a person, server and co-worker she is.
When you think of a staple of Rick’s Cafe, she is definitely one that comes to mind. She is a little bit of sass and a whole lot of class. Tessa is the kind of person who would do just about anything for anyone and will be truly missed. We will hire someone new but there will never be a replacement for one of our cherished employees such as her.
We are sad to lose her but happy to know she will be in California with her family. We will miss you so much Tessa! 😭😭😭🙈❤️💔
Love,
Your Rick’s Cafe Family

P.S. Tessa’s last day at work is tomorrow, so if you want to drop in and say farewell stop by!

While many are enjoying this Labor Day weekend away from work my thoughts turn towards our staff at Rick's Cafe. What to do for this excellent group of people who keep us open 24/7 (no easy task) which includes most of the holidays including this day that celebrates workers? One thing we did earlier this week was to close our Tuesday afternoon shift for a cookout in the park and a fun game of kickball. Thanks to all the great support we've received this year from all who visit for a great meal, every employee of Rick's Cafe will get a nice Labor Day bonus on their next check. A pat on the back and being told "job well done" is always a good thing but a bonus on the paycheck adds an exclamation point and shows the appreciation is genuine. A special thanks to all who are a part of our team, I thank you and want to let you know that you truly are the best! -Rick ... See MoreSee Less

You guys are awesome! Too bad all employers aren't like you.

Our favorite place.

We had breakfast there this morning. It was awesome and even tho the restaurant was busy, we had great service & the food was so delicious.

Ah Rick how come when I worked there we didn't get a bonus or play kick ball?

My only breakfast stop!!

It’s great that y’all think of your employees and it’s not always about the bottom line! I hope you and your staff have a great day tomorrow!!! My first date with my husband was at ricks!!!

It was pure excitement during the Rick's Cafe kickball game at Redwing Park yesterday. Team Amanda came away with a hard fought win after scoring a run in each of the first three innings. Team Mark mounted a furious comeback scoring two runs in the bottom of the 5th inning but came up short, leaving the tying run on third base. Tessa was the MVP not so much for her game but to note that this was also her going away party. After the final out was recorded both teams came together and reunited as Team Rick's. A great time was had by all, we cooked burgers, drank lots of water and no serious injuries or heatstrokes were reported. We'll do this again next year but maybe in October! ... See MoreSee Less

When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?" "What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?" "I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet.

Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said.

The Tanners ain’t got nothing on our full house!
What ever happened to predictability...of an omelette?
At Rick’s cafe we are always predictable! This monster of an omelette is packed with cheese, ham, bacon, sausage, bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms!
You may be thinking, “Cut it out!”, and I understand.
But I’m going to need you to just believe in the awesomeness presented, Capiche?
Come in anytime to try our Full House or any of our other awesome menus options available all day!
Repeat after me, “You got it dude”.

I used to get broccoli on my omelette there. Is that still an option? 🙂

The home fries are just like grandma made.this place is just like being home.

No fair, you're making me hungry!😅

Where are you located?

Looks good

Full house omelet is awesome

I can't wait for our next trip to Virginia because we plan on eating here again.

Ian Tobey

One of my favorites ♡

Delicious place!

Y'all make the best omelettes! I like that the onions and peppers are cooked instead of being hard and crunchy. But the the bacon is crunchy just as it should be. Mmmmmm!

That’s my favorite!

Masterful work!

A staff that finds unique ways to have fun at work is definitely an asset. We'll never claim they're perfect but we must admit they have fun trying!
Guess Rick will have to update the floor mopping procedure before some one gets hurt. It's all funny until someone pulls a muscle or falls over from laughing too hard!
(Don’t worry! It's a new mop, and it will be cleaned before use 😂)

When life gives you potatoes, you make home fries!
Singing while doing so never hurt anybody. Our cooks are quite possibly the most choral kitchen in the area.*
Don’t believe us?! See for yourselves! Come in anytime! We are open and serve our full menu 24/7!

*We cannot guarantee a staff memeber will be singing when you visit or a well sang song. 😂😂 We can guarantee great food and great service around the clock.

Was very clean service was quick and friendly. Food was good had a wide variety of items. Staff is very friendly food was delicious the home potatoes were a little cold but other than that everything tasted great looks good. They do serve alcohol in beer and soft drinks and juices which is a plus if you're like to have a beer with your meal. It's been years since I've been here me and my fiance had a great experience would definitely go back again keep up the good work 4 thumbs up

Recommended to eat here for breakfast by a local friend- it was amazing! We were sharing all the dishes back and forth. The food had lots of flavor and wasn't packed with salt like a lot of other places (but also wasn't under seasoned). Service was incredible- prompt and friendly. We will absolutely be back!

A classic American diner with classic diner food. I has the 3 egg and corned beef hash platter with grits, and a biscuit with sausage gravy on the side. Everything was prepared well. The eggs were perfect over easy, hash was nice and crispy. The only negative was the grits which were not salted when cooked. That gave them a metallic twang that table salt and butter couldn't take away. Overall a good experience. Would recommend

Great little diner off the beaten path. Excellent service and food! A little hidden gem. Open late or maybe all night. I know we were there at like 2am. Definitely gets busy late night but everyone was respectful. Great food, service and prices! Highly recommend this hidden gem!

Went with my dad today while visiting from Florida. Everything was delicious. We all got something different and shared and I can tell you that the chicken fried steak was hands down the best I've had. The French toast, pancakes, eggs, sausage, and home fries were great too. Highly recommend
