Love the mom and pops feel the staff was so friendly. Glad we got there when we did as the line stared forming quick. They have an outdoor space too. The food was so good. All 3 dishes were great. Would return of lived locally

Dropped in on Cinco de Mayo, and despite the crowed, the sercive was surprisingly prompt. The food was about average...but oh the margaritas.... I actually mentioned to my husband, after the first one, that they seemed a bit "light" on the tequila, but I quickly discovered that this well mixed cocktail packed a punch. We will be back to enjoy... More

Fajita taco salad is excellent, and so is the blue margarita. Service was a little slow when we went, but it was Cinco de Mayo, so that's to be expected. This is a tiny little shack of a place.

I visited Rico's on a Saturday afternoon with. The booth was clean, somewhat private and the restaurant was mostly empty. It is a great place to spend a rainy afternoon having a drink & chatting with a friend. I thought the food was sub-par to other Mexican restaurants in the area. Too charred, served too cool with hard shredded cheese.... More

I always get the fajita taco salad, which is the best in the area by far. Restaurant does not look promising from the outside but the food and margaritas are very good.

I got the Rico's. It was big, tasty; the steak was tender and perfectly grilled. The only complaint was it came with shredded cheese instead of the usual queso cheese. The salsa was very flavorful. Service was friendly.

Great little neighborhood restaurant. What Camoli is delicious, my margarita was a real thirst clincher. The place is quaint and the staff is extremely friendly. Great find

Food was typical Mexican fare. Nothing special to report but okay if you like Mexican food. Service was pleasant and good. Atmosphere was good.

We stopped into Rico's on a rainy Friday night in Georgia and had a wonderful warm comforting meal. I had a seafood enchilada dish that had wonderful spices and set my mouth aglow, and he had a sampler platter of everything one could imagine in an authentic Mexican cantina. They even had a gentleman (didn't get his name though) playing... More
