Amazing food

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

Went for lunch and ordered the Cuban Chicken sandwich. It was delicious. Price is average and the servers are good and know what they doing. I recommend this place. It is located in the heart of Buford, GA.

The food at Ricos is always good! There are different specials each day that are always great! It is a little noisy, but overall it's a great place.

The food is fresh and delicious! You will find unique meals at this restaurant made from high quality ingredients! Get there early because it is a small restaurant in a converted gas station! Unique atmosphere, unique food! Enjoy!!

Very fun place. Parking is challenging. The Cuban sandwich is exceptional. Always get the deep fried tomatoes. Wasn't happy with the tacos (only one time), so we get the Cuban, as our standard.

This came recommended to us and I can see why. Had the chicken Cuban sandwhich and it was great! Prices were a little high but nothing that would keep me from going back. It was good food so worth it. Tried a couple different desserts between the four of us at the table and again good eats! No one was... More

I haven't eaten anything here I didn't like. My favorite? The Cuban followed by the Getman Chocolate cake handmade by Rico's mom. Oh, the cherry on top ... Good (if somewhat limited) beer choices.

We stopped at Rico's while on our weekly trip to Buford. It's small and located inside a converted service station. Cute ambiance, and I bet it's perfect on fall afternoons when you can sit outside. I especially enjoyed the photos from around the world. It added a lot of character. Parking is super tight, so we actually parked across the... More
