What are people saying about them?

"Like this place a lot, it's actually affiliated with the Bourbon Street Pizza's in North Webster and Bourbon. They're dining room is sorta awkward but enough tables to seat maybe 30 to 40 individuals, and their pizza is delicious, kinda like Papa Johns but way better, I just love how buttery the crust (and bread sticks) are. Plus their baked pasta with the cheesey bread is my new favorite. Had their delivery only once but it was in good time and the guy was very nice, only thing I dislike is their semi small menu, and no dessert pizza, what's up with that?" – Lon Z. (Review taken from Yelp)

"The best pizza in Nappanee, ask if there are specials available. Great quality pizza. The seating and dining leaves much to be desired. There's one 23" flat screen TV usually playing Sports Center. (not HD)" – Reuben H. (Review taken from Yelp)

"Awesome BLT pizza!!! Sounds different but it's amazing!" – Alyssa (Review taken from Urbanspoon

What are people saying about them?

"Went for the first time a week ago..loved the Reuben. Loved the location. Just moved to Elkhart from Santa Cruz, CA...ate a lot of Reubens on the road trip over. This one was top three. Could use thicker cuts of bread to stand up to the delicious juices. My sandwich and my wife's was a bit soggy, but super good! Anyways, this place is great for a delicious sandwich with fast and friendly service. EAT HERE!!" – Chris S. (Review taken from Yelp)

Ricky's Taqueria

Location: 57995 C.R. 9 in Elkhart

Hours: 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday through Sunday

What do they have?

Ricky's Taqueria is one of those places that doesn't look like much from the outside – it's small, perhaps a bit off the beaten path. However, it's certainly a contender for the best Mexican food in town. Seating is limited, unlike the menu – the restaurant serves tacos, burritos, tortas, gorditas, quesadillas, huaraches, tostadas and some really, really good guacamole. Especially considering how much food each dish comes with, prices are very reasonable. Check out Ricky's menu on its website.

What are people saying about them?

"Awesome place to get something quick to eat. I always order take out though and I give them at least 15 min before picking it up. I have never been disappointed. Their burritos really hit the spot!" – Chandrea O (Review taken from Yelp)

"Working my way through Yelp Elkhart's top 5 restaurants and I'm finding all sorts of gems that I would never have tried otherwise! Ricky's is definitely one of them. Here are a few tips for your own venture:

- This is a taqueria (taco shop), not a restaurant. That means expect things like burritos, tacos, and tortas, rather than elaborate dinner plates.

- Definitely order the chorizo burrito and ask for lime wedges-- squeeze on the chorizo to really bring out the flavor. Fantastic!

- Consider carry out if you have more than 4 people in your party... the space is the size of a pill box.

On a side note, my sister and I had excellent, cheerful, and prompt service at Ricky's. Even the not-so-Mexican-food-savvy folks sitting next to us received a very patient explanation of, like, half the menu!" – Ana A. (Review taken from Yelp)

"Ricky's is authentic good priced Mexican food, and the employees are almost all fluent in English and Spanish. Great food, service and atmosphere!" – Miles B. (Review taken from Yelp)
