Classic Mexican

Visiting Frederick or Thurmont and want an authentic Mexican meal? Casa Rico's hits the spot. Our group tried many of the menu items, along with beer....and all 10 of us came away satisfied. Economical...Good atmosphere...good food....what else do you need?

Blah, the food is not authentic Mexican at all. Full of Indian spices and ho-hum. If you want authentic Mexican, skip this spot.

Excellent dinner. The food was tasty and not too spicy. It was presented well and the portions were large. The service was timely and appropriate. We had Chicken Margarita and Grilled Burrito. The staff was welcoming and the waitor very attentive. We will return.

I took my son out to eat here one Sunday afternoon in November for lunch. We hadn't been here in a very long time. In case you were wondering like me, this place opened back in 1987. It survived the Great Recession which has devastated the Golden Mile area in Frederick. Our server was welcoming and courteous. We didn't feel... More

My husband and I wanted to try one of the Mexican restaurants on Market St but couldn't find street parking so we drove out to Casa Rico. The food was just average. I had the steak and chicken fajitas. My husband had chicken soft tacos. The experience was okay but for the price, I expected more. We probably won't return... More

The ample serving size is a good value for the money and the large selection of choices on the menu makes this a good place for either lunch or dinner. Service is good and the atmosphere portrays a typical... More

The food is excellent. Try the shrimp diabolo. It's amazing if a little spicy. I had it with sour cream to calm the heat. The service is excellent. Th food is really really good.
