We've been there twice recently and both times were great. You definitely get a lot of bang for the buck. On the first visit, my husband had the broasted chicken and I ordered the liver. Both were delicious! A restaurant that can prepare liver well...is few and far between. The second time my husband ordered the Octoberfest meal with pork, potato pancakes, and red cabbage. I stuck with the liver. Once again, we were not disappointed. We're planning to go back before the end of the month so I can order the Octoberfest dinner as well. We agree that Jenna is awesome and so is Tony.More

Thank you for taking the time for a positive review. Glad you enjoyed our Oktoberfest menu. We think Jenna is a "Jem" also! I will share this with her.

We had 6 at our table and 5 of us enjoyed the Octoberfest menu. It was yummy and the servings are huge. They have great German drinks and desserts as well.

I had the pizza and it was really good. My husband had the meatloaf and it was below average. It was smothered in a brown gravy and didn’t stand on its own. His onion rings were served cold. Lettuce in the Caesar salad was brown...but flavor was good. Several people around us seemed to like their burgers. So recommend it for pizza and burgers. Service wasn’t great. No drink refills and had to request soup and salad when our dinners were served.More

We are sorry you had less than a great experience at our cafe. Did you alert the server or ask to speak to the manager or owner? We could have remedied it immediately that way. Please return and introduce yourself to our manager or owner...More

We got a traditional crust pizza to go and it was very good. Thin, crispy crush and not skimpy on the toppings. Yummy.

I absolutely love this place! I found out about Ricos in February of this year. I've been about 25 times since. My only regret is that I didn't find out about Rico's earlier. This restaurant is incredible. The service, food and variety are all the...things other restaurants should strive to be. Thank you Rico's for being you. I love every bite!More

Rico's is my local go-to in Traverse City. The food,service, and prices are always top-notch. I can't wait for them to re-open although I will only get takeout for a while yet.

My brother and I slipped in for a breakfast. Nice inside, attentive service, and plenty of room. I went with sausage links, eggs and home fries. The fried potatoes were a 10. Fried with onions and bell pepper, mighty tasty. Brother went with the huevos...rancheros. Completely enjoyed the meal. This is a solid cafe/restaurant with lots of choices. Check it out.More

The "authentic Greek" lemon chicken rice soup was anything but... The service was okay, and the staff was friendly. They were busy, but I would not go there for Greek food again.

We went for lunch on Saturday. They dont take reservations, they told me. It was busy at 12:30pm. We had gyro (special) lunch for $11.95 It came with a (fresh) Greek salad with beets, olives, feta cheese large gyro, plenty of hot, tasty french fires....I was impressed with the fries. Of course the gyro was very tasty also. We both took our 1/2 gyro(s) home with french fries. We also ordered baklava pieces to take home. They were delicious with the leftovers..Anthony was our waiter. He did a marvelous job even with a lot of pressure. Geek specials end in February.More
