Now Rico's. Brought my daughter here for dinner. She was very tired and started a bit of a meltdown. The staff did a great job of helping me turn her around. I was very thankful... The food didn't disappoint either.

We have been here many times. We love the chicken soup, fried avocados, taco salad, fajita meat and tacos. Green sauce is so-so. Chili con queso is disappointing. Nice staff. Weird dishes and they need new booth cushions. Great hole in the wall.

We went with two families, the food and service were both good. It has been pretty crowded a few times but the wait is acceptable. I would recommend if you are in the area.

Sorry folks, but this one is simply not worth the drive. Cheese sauce is OK, service is great, food tasted average, but the restaurant certainly needs a cleaning from top to bottom. We were also visited by a creature which scampered away after a couple...More

Looking for hole in the wall great food? If so then this is your place. Really good tex mex, decent margaritas, fast service. Seats are a bit run down but that just means a lot of people come here to eat.

If you like fajita enchiladas, El Charro has great chicken ones. And their fajita salad bowl is massive! They also have good green sauce that they bring out with the hot sauce. Their corn tortillas are also really good, they're not the real yellow ones...More

This is your local Mexican food joint for good, fast, and flavor-full TexMex. Everything we have had there is good. We prefer the burritos, enchiladas, and the fajitas. The adult beverages are a little sweeter than we prefer. Service is good inside but a little...More

being new to the area I was attracted to the authenticity of the decor and the "step back in time" atmosphere. It's the real thing. Food is good, service is friendly and longevity counts. Relax here.

Food is very sub par mexican food. Many other great Mexican food places around. Nice patio for a cold one when not too hot!

Families always seem to gravitate toward Rico's Mexican Grill. In fact, Interfaith of The Woodlands voted Rico's as the 'Best Family Dining' restaurant. Folks love the comfortable surroundings, authentic Texas décor and unique experience only found within these walls. How about the food? Well, you can be the judge of that with sizzling, tender fajitas, perfectly salted rice and beans, fish tacos, burritos, crispy chips and bragging rights for the best salsa within a thousand miles. Each location features vibrant dining rooms, a full bar, patio and a private banquet room at select locations. Live entertainment can also be enjoyed here most nights, to teleport you and your family south of the border and back in time. We make everything fresh to order and look forward to serving you for many more years. Gracias!
