Great Local Restaurant

Rico's Mexican Restaurant is a hidden gem in Acworth... You get the feeling you are actually in Mexico. Always pleased with the meal and service. Texas margaritas are great and beer is always cold. Occasionally, they have live music on the patio. Be sure to grab a coupon out of the local... read more

It's a neat little hole-in-the-wall place; I counted twelve tables total, along with a bar that could probably seat about 4. Right beside the train tracks in an otherwise-residential area of Acworth. The food was great. Delicious, original tastes. Thumbs up there. As for service... well. Other reviews mentioned Sherwin as a server, and, bless his heart, he sure doesn't... More

Rico's has great food, drinks, and a friendly service team. The place is quite small, but sitting outside is enjoyable when the weather is right. They have live music on the weekends, it is usually a solo act on the guitar. I'm not sure why they do this seeing as the place is so small, so I usually opt to... More

Rico's is a small place off the beaten track which is one reason we like it. Good food, good drinks, and a great get away to relax. You can sit inside or on the patio. Not the place to be if you are in a hurry, but a great place if you want to slow down and relax.

Absolute worst, without a shadow of a doubt, server ever. I will not go back. Embarrassed to have brought a friend in to try for her first time. So disrepectful.

Very good food but they're still working on alcohol license. Don't know if they have it yet. It's a small place but a cool atmosphere

Rico's is our favorite Mexican restaurant. The food is really good, Texas Margaritas outstanding as well as the staff. We do try to go early as it has limited seating.

We passed by this place for a few months and finally stopped in. Now it's our favorite Mexican restaurant. Not a lot of inside tables, but during the nice weather, they do have a large outdoor eating area. Good margaritas too and reasonable beer prices.

Housed in a small structure next to the railroad tracks, this tiny eatery serves up really good Mexican food and decent Margaritas too. Our favorite is the "Poblano Dinner" - great value and friendly service - AND good music (Classic Rock)

Rico's has an extensive menu of authentic Mexican cuisine. My first visit was on a Sunday evening late when I stumbled upon Rico's as nothing else but fast food restaurants were open. I am glad I found Rico's as the food was tasty and they even had love music which was a nice surprise. If you lile hot, try the... More
