My husband had the chicken Cuban and I had the Buffalo Scallop Po Boy. Both were generous in portion and flavorful. Both were served with homemade potato chips ( which were cold and not so special). The restaurant only has 16 tables so it fills up quickly. The atmosphere is kind of cold but the quality of the food and... More

I didn't read any reviews of Rico's before having lunch there - it was simply on the advice of a friend. I was blown away by the quality of the food, and the very interesting menu. Showed up on a Saturday for lunch, found the parking to be a challenge; this place (as others here have noted) is a refurbished... More

I love Rico's so very much. It's true on occasion the food can be average. Especially is you pick an boring item such as a po' boy. Its hard to wow with such a boring item. Its pretty much guaranteed that if they are having a special you should get it. Their surf and turf is usually amazing when offered.... More

Rico's offers wonderful and unique dishes that are consistently delicious. You may have to wait to get seated because they are always busy but the food is worth the wait. the restaurant is in what once was an old southern style gas station or perhaps a small car dealer. Yummy every time.

I have been to Rico's at least a half dozen times and have never been disappointed. The place is small and has a set menu (which has several different Items to order from). The food is fantastic every time I have been here. The fried green tomatoes are just about as good as grandma's! It is a converted gas/garage and... More

We visited with extended family on a Saturday night. There was a long wait and not many places to wait inside on a cold night. The food as always was good and a little out of the ordinary for Buford. The service was OK. However, the noise made it almost impossible for a party of 6 to talk.

Whether you get the appetizer or salad, the Southern staple is sure to please. I love to bring guests to this quaint and eccentric restaurant surprises and has a great menu.
