Ricky's Restaurant Review
Chain restaurants haven't driven out all of San Diego's old-line family dining spots, and this unpretentious place, opened in 1968 on the quiet fringe of Mission Valley, remains dear to the city's heart. A traditional three-meals-daily restaurant, Ricky's serves big portions of unassuming, well-prepared, all-American cooking, like steak with all the trimmings for $16, but it's really famed for breakfast, when savory corned-beef hash and fluffy strawberry Dutch baby and oven-baked omelets are the rule. The spectacular apple pancake, a soufflé-like creation that takes 20 minutes to bake, arrives piping hot and is irresistible to the last molecule of molten cinnamon sugar. Ricky's popularity never wanes.
