Driving up the Merrit Parkway we decided to check Trip Advisor for a place to stop for lunch. Rick's on 5 seemed like what we were looking for, and it sure was. It was easy to find but parking was a challenge. Once we got a table our delightful waitress took our order, I got a Caesar chicken wrap and... More

Very small and tight quarters. Food was very good, service was good, but the closeness really got to me. Not good at all for handicapped people.

I love this place. Great breakfast and lunches. Specials are always good. I'm not sure if the place was sold or what, all different waitstaff. I'll have to keep an eye on the food quality. But, for now still good food.

I stopped in with my daughter and granddaughter and the food was great, the staff was attentive and quick and the prices were fair. My granddaughter is a fussy ten- year-old and she loved the food
