nice people. Waitress said we couldn't modify meals because the food is made in the morning then just reheated. All three of our meals were just ok

Nice location. Clean. Polite waitress/ cashier. But, the food was so bland and tasteless. Hate to say it, but Taco Bell would have been better. I had such high hopes and was jonesing for some great Mexican food.

The staff is friendly and we enjoyed our meal. We expected the food to be cookie-cutter Mexican but found that the food is authentic. Prices are reasonable and we were served quickly.

This place was recommended for Mexican. I ordered a quesadilla and added steak meat for $2.50. My husband ordered a steak burrito. I didn't have more than 10 small chunks of meat in a 12 inch quesadilla. There was no Mexican cheese only cheddar. There was no salsa, sour cream or guacamole served on the side to dip it in....

Doesn't look like much but they have great, authentic food. Best in Hill City! Multiple times we wished we'd had gone here instead of where we did!

We ate at Rico's as a quick stop after golfing nearby. We had the chorizo tostada and a burrito, both of which were authentic and delicious. We ate outside and it was easy to go up to the front window and order our food, and they just yelled for us when it was done. It was fast, it was cheap,... More

Service was good, food was excellent and fresh. Everyone enjoyed their food. Great beer choices (IMO). We ate outside, the inside isn't anything to write home about but it's the food that brought us in! The nachos supreme was excellent! So much food.

At first glance Rico's looks like a place that might disappoint, but not so. Go in and place an order. The food is great. Just for starters, I think they have the best guacamole I've ever tasted. You do have to order chips and guacamole as an appetizer, but it is worth doing! I had tacos. They came with rice... More

Rico's is a small mexican restaurant located in Hill city. The front looks like a quick service counter with tables but if you go around to the left side you will see the door to a small cozy dining area. The food is all home made and is good, more in a tex/mex style. My only complaint would be that... More
