Great pizza. Had super long waits last 2 out of 3 times. Once, they hadn't even started on a call ahead order. Today, still waiting 20 minutes after calling in 35 minutes before arriving, when told 30-35 minutes. I was told it was "in the oven" when i paid. Still waiting. Just got my 2 pizzas. 25 minute wait.

I finally found what I've been searching for! REAL NY pizza in Durham! The pizza here is incredible and authentic. The crust is fresh, not frozen; the sauce is delicious, and the cheese is perfect. Ricky is such a nice guy and really takes pride in his food. They've got a new customer for life!

I just drank an entire cup of sauce. By itself. It was a spiritual experience, drinking that sauce. I almost cried and I don’t know why, but it was just that delicious! Rickys has, hands down, the best sauce I have ever tasted in my life. And I don’t take my sauce lightly. If you’ve never been here, I highly recommend getting the Original NY Stromboli. It comes with a little cup of sauce on the side, but do yourself a favor and order an extra side of sauce. Maybe two. Trust me. And after you take a bite of Stromboli, dipped in sauce, take a sip of sauce to wash it down. Then, thank God for Ricky and his delicious sauce, and then thank me for leaving this review to recommend the sauce to you.

My office staff and I met Mr. Ricky on Thursday March 3, 2022 when he came for a Passport. Mr. Ricky told my office staff to give him a call on the following Monday and that he would treat us all to pizza. Yesterday, Mr. Ricky did just that. He was very welcoming and his restaurant was very clean. The pizzas were simply incredible! Absolutely delicious! I will definitely go back! Authentic Italian pizza, Genuine and kind owner. Thanks Mr. Ricky

I haven’t been living in Durham for even a year yet, but I can’t even explain how happy I am to have discovered this place. Their food is VERY good. Pizza, calzones, ravioli, subs...so many options and ALL delicious.

Moving from Chicago and not having a ny style pizza place over there really made my life miserable. Moving to the east coast and finding this place it’s been the greatest. Awesome pizza!

Fresh salads yum. Pizza pretty good. Manicotti filling grainy and gross. BEST Philly steak and cheese!

Wasn't as tasty this time as usual and the crust was thicker than normal. I will chalk it up as an off night on their part or mine.

I have ordered from Ricky's for years now & love them! Ricky cares about his customers & making sure that they are happy with their food. After all of the years, I consider him a friend now. If you want a 'pizza' call Pizza Hut but if you want a real NY style 'pie', Ricky's is the place to go!!!

Had a last minute craving for pizza on this Labor Day. Delivery through Menufy went well and arrived exactly during the original expected time. Very courteous delivery person. The pizza was delicious and exactly as ordered. Well done. Happy to have found a local pizza place that was so delicious. Cheers!

Ricky's is extended family to me by now. I order from them every Friday without fail. I'm from Connecticut and am very particular about my pizza. This is by far the most authentic New York style pizza I've had in North Carolina. Ricky's gets their ingredients shipped from up north which makes a world of a difference. So wonderfully delicious.

Pizza, wings and salad were all great! They also seem to be doing a great job being health/safety conscious, which is very important to me right now.

This pie is the best I have had south of New Jersey. I would put it in the top 5 I have ever had. Consistently made, great toppings and excellent thin crust. When these guys say New York Pizza, they mean it.

Absolutely the BEST pizza you will find anywhere in NC! Thin crust New York style at its finest. The staff are very great to deal with and the owner is a class act, you will be happy! I usually get a plain cheese slice from the pizza joints I visit, I want to see if it is good with no help from toppings and such. I will tell you no one can hold up to Ricky's! Its known as the good pizza place around my house when we talk about pizza. 11/10 good stuff!

Ricky's is a great restaurant to do business with. My company uses them weekly and no one could asked for better service. Great tasting pizza and good people.

Are you kidding me?! Incredible. Just, incredible! I’ve been to the best pizza joints in NY (for instance, L&B Spumoni Gardens in Brooklyn), and Ricky’s is basically a transplant straight from NYC. Every pizza we’ve had here is authentic and amazing. Love the buffalo chicken pizza, so unique, and the Brooklyn style. Have not found anything on the menu that is not fantastic!!! Even the antipasto salad was unbelievable! Thank you, Ricky — keep up the great work!!

Love their pizza, and it is consistently great!!! I HATE that they used to deliver, but now charge $10 delivery fee for a 7.1 mile, 11.0 minute delivery. Can't justify that, and can't leave to pick up. Very sad indeed. Probably grubby grub hub's fault.

Their pizza is the best! I ordered a medium pepperoni and medium Italian chicken pizza and they were both a taste of heaven. I hadn't tried the Italian chicken pizza before but it was absolutely amazing! It said it would take an hour to deliver and they were there in 36 minutes!! I was very impressed with everything.

This is my go to when I want high quality pizza. I have a spot that I've been eating at for 30 years when I want "quick and dirty", but if you're wanting REALLY high quality; fantastic pizza, this is your place! Hands down, the best ricotta I have EVER had ANYWHERE! As an added bonus, Ricky's pizza reheats better than any other pizza I have ever had but there is rarely any left over for the next day.

Being from NY it was hard to find a pizza parlor in NC. I was introduced to Ricky's Pizza a few years back and have not had pizza from anywhere else. It is outstanding, the price is very reasonable, the service is outstanding. Outside of the pizza we love the cheese steak especially my 11 year old daughter, as well as the mozzarella sticks. Every time we enter Rock's Pizza we know we're in for a fabulous dinner.

Who expected this level of authenticity in a strip mall? The best stromboli I've ever had. We had friends over and ordered a little bit of everything so people had choices. NY white pizza wasn't greasy or too salty and truly NY style. Spinach, mushroom, onion stromboli was truly the best, wasn't soggy and the vegetables were all cut similarly so you don't get raw onions and mushy spinach, know what I mean? Truly tasty. Spinach ravioli was great with enough sauce for dipping the toast. The salad was flavorful and fresh and the ranch dressing was perfect. We also got a sampler platter that honestly topped anything we've had and although we got it to go, wasn't remotely soggy or cold despite sitting in the container for 20+ minutes. The meatball parm was toasty and cheesy and exactly what you'd want but nothing like you'd expect from outside the northeast. The desserts were amazing and we all kept passing them around to share. This is the type of food where manners go out the window and you start feeding each other across the table because it's so good your loved ones have to try it. Taste the love, because it's there and we have leftovers for dinner...if I can keep my husband and his friend out of the kitchen that long. So good we'll be back next week!

Best pizza I’ve had in the area. Great service... I’ve always had friendly interactions with the staff. The delivery guys are also awesome. Good pizza is hard to find and it’s even better when the restaurant and it’s staff are consistently top notch.

Truly good pizza, Stromboli, and salad! We moved to the Durham area from lower Connecticut, and we were a little worried whether we'd find good pizza in the area. While we certainly like other pizza places in Durham as well, Ricky's is always solid, reliable, and delicious! Don't let the strip mall location fool you - they have good food, friendly service, and their food is ready quickly. 😊

Thanks to Ricky's I've learned the difference between a pizza & a pie, and I can honestly say that Ricky's has by far the best pie in town! I've had a lot of other items and never had any complaints. I read some of these comments and seriously wonder if the people commenting actually were in the same place I go to. Yes Ricky has had an issue from time to time w/a bad apple employee, everyone is human. But I also know that if you have any issues & you speak directly to Ricky & are polite about it, he handles his employees. They, just like his regular customers, are family, and he's not gonna allow a black sheep to negatively impact his business, other employees & customers. I would highly recommend Ricky's Pizza to anyone, especially any misplaced northerners looking for a true NY style pie!!

I work about 5 minutes away from Ricky's, I only get a 30 minute lunch break starting at 12PM. I call them around 11:30, and place my order, and tell them that I will be there at 12:05 to dine in, and eat my lunch. I arrive there at 12:05P, and they have it ready for me, and I pay for it and enjoy it. I usually get the Cheese Calazone, it is really delicious, and it a huge portion. The owner, and the staff are very friendly, and laid back. They are always playing really good music on their Jukebox, which is another plus.

My family’s from Brooklyn and this is the closest pizzeria in NC that reminds me of that. Truly NYC style pizza at an unassuming location. Wings are pretty good too

I have been going to Ricky’s for over 8 years, their food is and has always been consistently great. Ricky always goes above and beyond to accommodate our catering needs! We love and appreciate Ricky’s Pizza.

Literally the best pizza we've ever had. These kids have never eaten their pizza crusts before, so that really says something about how great it was. We will definitely be back.
