We first went to Ricks around 1987-1990. Great quality food, good service. Today in 2018 those same wait staff are great but how I feel sorry for them. We last went to buffet breakfast 2-4 years ago. TODAY! The bacon is like paper thin, no...More

Very generic food... Everything tastes like margarine, canned fruit... Box Donuts... Packaged gravy....maybe the biscuits are homemade?

We had a large family group (about 25 of us with kids and babies). Nothing fazed the wait staff. We were a well-behaved group but still that's a lot of people. Some had the breakfast buffet and some ordered from the menu. Everyone was satisfied....More

Great little restaurant in South Fayetteville. Weekend breakfast buffet is really good. Their biscuits and gravy was true southern cooking. Everything was great. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was for lack of strawberries on the buffet. The price for 3 of...More
