Love going to Ricos, we have been a couple of times. Such a great little lunch place. Food is very good. Can't wait to go back again.

Great food, great prices, great friendly service and specialty dinners that make the place authentically unique, especially the facility which is a converted small town gas station.

First time to this artsy little restaurant after hearing much about it from my family . Impressive for the area and not a disappointment. Eclectic and creative. Muscles were amazing. I wanted to take a straw to the remaining sauce. I was raised both in New Orleans and Puerto Rico and I found a touch of both worlds in their... More

Rico's has excellent food at a great price. Their food is not the standard food, but a specialty. They have awesome specials. The only drawback is the limited menu. Everything is delicious but we go there once a month or so and have had everything on the menu. Go to Rico's, it is great.

I LOVE Rico's world kitchen. The oyster po boy. It's all you need to know... The desserts are handmade by the chefs mother. The wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely one of my top choices for good artisan meals in the Buford area.

The other reviews were great, so wanted to try this place. There are some terrific places in Buford, so I would spend the time and money at one of the others first. This converted garage at first seems fun and funky, but it is cold,the noise bounces off the concrete and it is kind of dirty.. The menu on line... More

They always come up with new dishes to serve. Service is good. Desserts look out of this world. We didn't have any. Follow them on facebook to find out their specials of the day. You won't be disappointed.

Ricos was recommended to us while dining in a similar restaurant in lawrenceville. It was so good we went for lunch 2 weekends in a row. So far we have had the appetizers of calm chowder, green tomatoes, chicken& beef mini-egg rolls, and entrees of mojo pork, Cuban, and the fried wahoo sandwich. Not one dish a disappointment. Oh and... More

Everything from the appetizers to the sandwiches were great, the flavors and mix of species give every plate a unique identity Also the desserts, from strawberry lemon cake to the traditional yet unique banana pudin make the whole experience excellent
