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.

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!!

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. 😊

Had seen great reviews and while in Durham gave this place a try. Best pizza I had in quite awhile. Will definitely visit again.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Never been disappointed with the service or the food.

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!!
