Tastes authentic to us!

We stopped into Rico's on a rainy Friday night in Georgia and had a wonderful warm comforting meal. I had a seafood enchilada dish that had wonderful spices and set my mouth aglow, and he had a sampler platter of everything one could imagine in an authentic Mexican cantina. They even had a... read more

Great little neighborhood restaurant. What Camoli is delicious, my margarita was a real thirst clincher. The place is quaint and the staff is extremely friendly. Great find

Food was typical Mexican fare. Nothing special to report but okay if you like Mexican food. Service was pleasant and good. Atmosphere was good.

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 paper/advertisements for a BOGO fajitas offer. Plus they... 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.

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
