Ricky's Family Restaurant

Ricky's Family Restaurant

Going out to eat is supposed to be fun and give you a night off from cooking – but that fun turns to frustration when everyone in the family wants something different to eat! One wants a nice big salad with grilled chicken. One wants a pizza with three types of cheese. Yet another wants a fully loaded burger and a mountain of crispy fries. What can you do? If you live in Cochrane, you head to Ricky’s/Famoso.

Ulises Rivera says of the these well known brands, “Here we bring two of the best food concepts to one location.” It’s pizza, pasta, wings and burgers plus all the sides you love. But it’s also a breakfast café with Ricky’s famous omelets and benny sandwiches. Why choose when you can have it all? There is something here for every member of your family or group.

Rivera promises, “quality, affordable prices and authentic Neapolitan pizza along with outstanding customer service.” Ricky’s/Famoso is dine in, pick up or delivery through DoorDash and Skip. This location is pleased to celebrate a Readers’ Choice bronze award.
