Cool place. It looks to be a converted gas station. It's clean and always busy at lunch but I have never waited for a table. The food is really good. They have a great selection of some healthy food but a good bit of fried, very tasty food. My wife is a food snob. (hope she doesn't read this) and... More

This is the most awesome restaurant. Very unpretentious atmosphere with excellent drinks and amazing food. ALWAYS get the special. You can't go wrong with the desserts either! This restaurant may be a little out of the way, but sooooo worth the trip!

I was in Buford for a week visiting relatives. We ordered Rico's twice for take-out. Everything we ordered was amazing! I particularly liked (in this order): Royal Rooster Sandwich Chicken Cuban Sandwich Mojo Pork Sandwich The hashbrown caserole was a delicious side item (it is worth the upcharge).

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.

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.
