Rico's to relax

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

It's not fancy but the food is good. Kid friendly and usually pretty busy. The staff is friendly and the service is good. I recommend the chicken soup, it's delicious.

Of course, coming from Southern California, saying something is the best in Acworth isn't exactly the highest praise. But as far as other local Mexican joints go, this one is more authentic than most. Food is good with some different menu items from the local chains. It feels like you're in a real Mexican taco shop when you're inside. They... More
