This is a very unique place with good food. The food is a little off beat, but always tasty. The service is always good and friendly. The deserts are very good as well. One of the places that make the dining experience in Buford top notch.

Great culinary experience close to downtown Buford. Only con is the lack of parking. Cuban sandwich is always a go to hit. Salads are great, that way you can leave room for their fabo cakes or puddings. Small outdoor seating.

I came in here expecting wow-inspiring food. Unfortunately, they spend so much time with the pomp, they don't quite get the food to match the elevation levels. Some interesting flavor combos. Mostly, just tossing a bunch of fancy sounding things together to make food that tastes like it came out of my own kitchen.

The place is a little loud and they pack them in tight. Parking can be an issue, However, the food is great, and the staff knowledgable. Great daily specials. Highly recommend this place. Just try to male at off peak times.

We had a bit of a wait for a late lunch (2.00pm) on a Saturday but not too long and nothing more than was promised. Food was delightful. I had the special: "Buffalo style" sea scallops po'boy which was excellent. The bread was that wonderful real NOLA style--rich & buttery--and the scallops were just under-cooked, ie-perfectly. The sandwich was a... More

This is what a small town cafe/diner should be. Small, loud, local and have great food. Service was outstanding, I had the lumpia and a shrimp po boy, both were great.

Food is fantastic--hard to make a choice. I had green tomato salad and leek soup. Friends had one of the French dip choices and the chipotle chicken sandwich. We split lemon cake for dessert. Everything here is house made. Several really innovative salads. Was crowded at11:30 but thinned out around 1. It's really loud when full so next time I... More

This is my absolute favorite meal from Rico's. The staff are very friendly. It's a small place but it's a nice place to go with friends.

We shared fried green tomatoes with spicy remoulade, he had Buffalo Scallop Po Boy with homemade potato chips, I had the mussels, shrimp& clams in a delicious broth. We finished by sharing a slice of... More
