Very good fresh food. A little bit of Cuban, Filipino and American. Ambiance is trendy, cool place to try out.

It's different, eclectic, and amazing! Unusual beer menu (which I like)! There are some name brands on the menu but some that are rare. They make a sangria that half the table got and ordered another round of. I had one of the specials for dinner, and apparently once they run out, they are out - so get there early... More

I had the burger with grilled onions and peppers and it was a great burger. For dessert I had the pumpkin cheesecake and it was excellent. Definitely a go back when in... More

There's a reason the place is rated #1. We had 12 people go for lunch yesterday (Sunday) at 11:30 a.m. We were sat at two small tables but quickly saw why. It didn't take long before the place was completely filled. Even with a full house, we were served in a timely manner and treated very well by our waitress.... More

Whoopee - 1st day of Vacation and we're on the road to Marietta GA to drop off some things and visit with the Grandsons prior to heading to Florida. Did a little research while driving and found this place so decided to give it a shot. Converted garage in Downtown Buford across the street from very busy railroad tracks. When... More

We had roasted chicken over potatoes with salads and the egg roll appetizer. Everything was very good and fresh. We got lucky and got a table for dinner. Recommend stopping for anyone in the area.

Looked up restaurants before heading to this area. This place was great. I had a nice glass of sangria and we had yummy fried green tomatoes for a starter and I had the ham/brie/apricot preserves sandwich and my husband had the cheeseburger special. Everything was GREAT! Looking forward to going back.

First visit to Rico's World Kitchen and it was well worth the visit. The place has a small parking lot so get there early. We went on Saturday morning at 11 to ensure a spot. The fried green tomato appetizer was really good and the sauce very tasty. I had the brisket Rueben special with an Apple sauerkraut. It was... More
