Try the Royal Rooster

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.

Hubby wanted to try a new place for his birthday & we had heard good things about Rico's. Wow! Great service & even greater food! 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

Great food different from the usual restaurant fare. Menu changes which gives you more dining choices. Usually crowded but wait is not bad.

Try Ricos for something out of the ordinary. We have eaten here now 6 times were pleasantly surprised each time with the new and different offerings that Ricos have on their revolving menu, especially the brisket that has a Dr. Pepper BBQ sauce...all I can say is wow you gotta try this place. We will be back again soon.

A few weeks ago after looking at great reviews decided to go to Ricos, my friend didn't like the way it looked outside, so we headed to another restaurant. Last week my friend surprisedly called me that her cousin took her there and she wanted me to join them. I'm so glad she called me, really impressed with their food,... More

Love the old gas station locale of Ricos World Kitchen! Teeny tiny but the staff handles the crowd flow at lunch really wonderfully. It's always packed! You wait in the old "come in and pay area" of the garage and eat in the 2 old bays of the garage! Approx 8-10 tables. Some patio seating but in the Deep South... More

If you haven't been to Rico's or tasted their unique food then you are simply missing out. Great food, service, and atmosphere. The food is simple yet amazing and truly affordable. Very cool place, yes it's small and you might have to wait but it is well worth it! Try their fried green tomatoes or BBQ Mussels as starters, ask... More

We visited here on a Friday lunch and had the Royal Rooster. It was a pretty good sandwich and homemade chips meal. I highly recommend this place. It is small however, so no real big crowds.

Unique dishes you won't find anywhere else. Apricot Brie and ham sandwich is excellent. Cakes are excellent as well

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
