I have been hearing about Rick’s Diner for years, but it is in one of those seemingly invisible (to me anyway) shopping centers behind Target that makes me never remember to go there. But despite its boring location (the BB&T plaza), Rick’s sure will excite you!!
The sausage and gravy biscuits were fluffy and soft.
More importantly, the pancake (called a hotcake on the menu) was the best I have ever had, ever in my life, ever. Seriously. I can’t stop thinking about it. It was the tiniest bit crispy on the outside, buttery, fluffy, cloud-like but lined with a thin crust of heaven. Maybe you think I’m exaggerating. At the very least, it has been voted Best Pancake in Durham in the Indy before (possibly 9 years ago), so there’s a bit of confirmation of my story, but I have never been so sure of anything in my life.
Yeah, you can’t tell from the photo.
The service was extremely friendly. They have mimosas, wine, and a bottled beer selection that includes some of my all-time faves (Lagunitas, Bell’s, and Terrapin). I will be going back very soon for their fried banana peppers rings. But mainly…the pancakes.Rick’s Diner (4015 University Dr.) Sun – Tues. 7am-3pm Wed – Sat. 7am-8:30pm
