My friend turned me on to Rico's and I'm hooked. Last night was the first time I've ordered off the menu because the special are always so good. I'm a meat lover, but I had the Fried green tomato and portabella mushroom sandwich !!!!! The service is just as good as the food. Enjoy

We have been to Ricos several times and never had a bad experience or a bad meal. Everything on the menu is consistently good. Well worth the trip to find it. Interesting atmosphere too!

Rico's, located in Buford, Ga., serves great food in what was once a gas station. The special I ordered was a scallop po'boy sandwich with special sauce, served with sweet potato chips. Delicious! One can have a table inside or outside the restaurant. An occasional train will rubble by with a loud whistle that did startle me. The restaurant is... More

Rico's is our "go to" place for date night. The chef specials are always a hit. The layers of flavor & spice are exceptional. The consistent, quality service also makes this a great place. Enjoy!

Rico's World Kitchen on Main Street in Buford, GA is one of the best funky places I've ever been. The basic metal tables, the enormous bay doors meant for backing your rig into and the concrete floor of this converted garage add to the contrast between industrial and haute cuisine. My girlfriend and I were told to order one of... More

Also had the banana pudding and it was great! The... More

This charming restaurant in Historic Buford, Georgia is on the Main Street along the railroad tracks. I have an art studio near by and eat here often. Rico is truly a chef! I have to say that I recommend everything from appetizers to desert. They serve beer and wine as well. For starters try the fried green tomatoes. His crab... More

We've been to Rico's about 6 times, it is always a great experience, the staff is wonderful, the food is amazing and the atmosphere is fun and unique. Housed in an old gas station, there are about 25 tables, there's almost always a wait, but don't leave, it's well worth it. We always end at Rico's if in the Buford... More
