My family met with our parents Friday 11/11 here for dinner. The service was absolutely superb. The friendly atmosphere is very welcoming. Even the owner greets his customers. Melanie was our waitress (a favorite of our parents as they're regulars) and she was very accommodating. My husband had the Tiger Tilapia (with Mahi Mahi instead), my mother had the hamburger...

Sally was our waitress. She is one of the nicest most outgoing people I've ever met. The food is to die for. Tried the catfish for my very first time and it was delicious. My brother had a special dish called Bayou Lulu and I had the Maui Maui. Everything was awesome including the drinks. As an added bonus, we... More

Talladega Alabama is known to be the location of the biggest, baddest track in Nascar. However, there are some AMAZING restaurants in the Talladega area. One of these is Rick's Crossroads Grille. Their motto is "Cajun and then some!" We started off with Boudin Balls and Seafood Gumbo - Both on the appetizer menu. The gumbo was the best I've... More

It truly doesn't get any better than this! Perfectly seasoned slabs of the tenderest slow cooked prime rib are served Thursday-Saturday at Ricks. Fried green tomatoes, garlic mashed potatoes & fried okra are a few of the tasty sides available. Come hungry!

We originally went to Rick's in 2014 and returned during the Memorial Day weekend 2016. The Beer was still as cold as it was before! We had the Tiger Tillapia and it was magnificent! Perfectly cooked, a great Cajun cream sauce and the pasta was cooked to perfection as well, no wonder this place is ranked 1st in the Lincoln... More

Whenever I come to the Talladega area, I always eat at Rick's Crossroad Grille. It's kind of in the middle of no where, so you know that the food is good when the place is packed for dinner! Best to make a reservation, just in case. All the food, desserts, and salad dressings are made in house. Lots of variety... More
