Full Bar and Restaurant with 90+ tv’s multiple satellite dishes and free WiFi
It wasn’t always so high tech here! Ricky’s® has been around since 1946. Like many a famous establishment, you just need to mention the name. When you tell a sports fan to meet up at “Ricky’s” they know all about it. The insane amount of TV’s, (yes even in the bathroom), the food, the personalities from local media who stop by, the current and former players who drop in. But with all that it is mostly about the people that come to Rickys. It is THE place to see YOUR team. When you walk in the door you are family.
Yes Ricky’s is known worldwide as a Raiders fan hangout. It’s true if you are a Raiders fan, you must visit Ricky’s. Fans come from all over the country and the world to visit. We’ve had Raider Nation fans from England and Japan in the house. Hey, even Raiders players stop by. During the dark days of the team not playing in Oakland, the Raiders fans would gather at Ricky’s for every game It is a real family. The media knows to come to Ricky’s. Sometimes they broadcast from Ricky’s or interview patrons on Raiders issues.
There are so many Ricky’s/Raiders stories, ask Ricky for some the next time you stop by. Here is a good one. Back in 1977 The Oakland Raiders had won their first Super Bowl defeating the Minnesota Vikings 32 to 14. This was way before the days of the home VCR, but Ricky’s had professional equipment to tape the game. A few weeks after the game, on a slow weekday afternoon, The Raiders players started to arrive at Ricky’s. Why? They wanted to watch the game! After everyone made it in, Ricky cued up the tape and the Super Bowl champion Oakland Raiders got to live it all over again.
We’ve got your game!
Ricky’s has always had the Big satellite dishes on the roof, and with the popularity of the smaller dishes, Ricky’s is on top of the latest technology.

Fun for the whole family
The atmosphere at Ricky’s is always positive and friendly. Kids are welcome, and have a great time there. When George Karl was the Warriors coach, he would hang out at Ricky’s taking notes on the games and bring his kids down with him. Coach Karl would use 2 or three tables as his desk and scout the NBA teams while his kids had a great time.
And of course it’s not just kids that have fun. We get all ages and all kinds of people.
