We have been to Rico's several times now. The quality of the food never disappoints and the servers are always very friendly. Your best bet are always the specials for both the appetizers and the entrees. In many cases a couple can share one of each with a dessert and leave very satisfied. My only suggestion to improve the restaurant... More

very nice atmosphere, easy place, small, very clean and well organized. Good choice of starters and entree, very tasty. Dessert deserve to be improved.

Solo i dessert hanno qualche area di... More

After three trips to this restaurant I just don't get what's the big deal. It's way too loud and has okay food, at best. service seems fine, but the calorie counts on most dishes would make fast food joints look like healthy alternatives.

We try to support local businesses, and Rico's makes it easy to support them. Maybe not the most diet friendly place, but the food is so good! And the desserts are amazing!

Love the food here, it's always good, it's a local hole in the wall, Usually pretty busy but well worth the wait, doesn't look great from the outside but that's why it's a hole in the wall. Awesome Food!

We visited Ricos after staying at the Legacy Lanier property. The menu was just big enough for a nice family meal. They have a good kids menu and the regular menu is mainly soups, salads, sandwiches and appetizers. But their specials are quite impressive. We got there around 6:30 and it started to get really busy. But the food was... More

Rico's food is excellent and a good value. I haven't had a bad meal, though after trying the mussels for the first time, I can't make myself order anything else! Ask for extra bread; the sauce is delicious enough to drink as a soup. Think New Orleans style BBQ shrimp, but creamier. The banana pudding is a must-try for dessert.

The food was good. The parking lot very small and crowded and if you want atmosphere it is not the place to go. I would go back because of the good food and prices are reasonable.

From outside appearances, this place doesn't look like much but you need to try the food to experience Rico's. Many people suggested that my wife and I try this place and when we finally did, we realized why it has been repeatedly suggested. I have been here three times since my first visit and I have yet to eat anything... More

My husband and daughter just happened upon this restaurant a few weeks ago and couldn't stop talking about the great food. So, we decided to go as a family the next week and, yes, it was as good as he said. I highly recommend you trying this out!!!!
