Best Mexican food I have had in a long time! I couldn't believe how cheap this place is too. I found a new favorite spot.

My kids love going to Rico's. If you don't mind a cramped space, you should try it out. The customer service is great, servers are very friendly and the food is freshly made. Big taste in a small space. Great addition to Acworth :)

We are new to the area and have made Rico's a regular. The food is fresh and very good. The service has always been friendly and fast. After we brought friends here, they became fans too.

I begin with the disclaimer.... I am not the biggest Mex/Tex Mex food fan and do not usually eat at such establishments. That said, I love Rico's! The food is wonderful, the beer is cold, the margaritas rock, and the service is always exceptional! Indeed, the servers are personable, funny, and attentive. The atmosphere is relaxed, and the place offers... More

Tiny place in Kennesaw. The staff is super friendly and the food, while not exceptional, it good. The Grande Margarita is a fishbowl size drink which I find perfect on a Friday night. If you go when there is live music, sit outside or you will not be able to have a conversation. It fills up fast in the evening... More

We are traveling from Florida to Cleveland (and back) over the next 10 days. On our first night from home we really wanted to try and find a GOOD Mexican Restaurant. Thus far, Florida is a total bust in this area, so we were really aching for MEXICAN. Well, we found a great little place in Acworth, GA, called Rico's... More

We ate here based on Yelp. I ordered chicken & steak fajitas. They arrived sizzling! They were excellent! And so much food, enough for next day dinner. Skip the house margarita, it had nasty artificial taste. Service was attentive. Prices reasonable. Though they charged me $2 for extra tortillas. Only complaint: so hot inside restaurant. We were sweating...so were other... More

Great food, service and prices. Friday nights have live entertainment. Only complaint is the heat indoors. It was way to hot inside.
