Ricos in Buford

Good food in an interesting atmosphere - used to be an ol "filling station" The place is usually crowded, so keep that in mind when you go.

Awesome food. I have been multiple times and always had great service. If you are tired of what you typically find around Buford, they have some unique stuff. Good for lunch or dinner.

I live in busy Atlanta and while a friend was in town, we decided to drive to Buford for the day and look around. While there, we saw this old converted gas station that is now Rico's World Kitchen. It looked interesting so we stepped in for a late lunch/early dinner. We were greeted right away and seated immediately. The... More

OMG - we have been to Rico's over 10 times, despite the fact that we live 20+ miles away. Why? Great food and great service, of course. Yesterday I had the BEST SANDWICH that I have ever eaten - the House Reuben: Brisket, cheese, chipotle mayo and apple cabbage slaw on grilled rye - simply amazing. I completely agree with... More

the menu is a bit limited in choices, but most were very unique choices. The different sandwiches our group tried were all great. You will sample each others meals! It can be a bit loud if busy, a single large room.

Stopped Sunday afternoon with friends for lunch. This place is very interesting. It is decorated with pictures from around the world taken by the owners and his friends. It is the only restaurant in Georgia that has Cheer Wine soda on tap. I have never heard of the stuff, try it, it has a taste all to itself. Make sure... More
