Rico's is a great bar for everyone. Love music? Live music almost every night, musicians with serious talent, typically associated with wsu and ui. Bar food? The best! Very friendly staff, great beer choices, and top shelf well drinks.

I am biased having had drinks at Rico's for more than 40 years. I can remember Rico (Tony Tallarico running the place. It only gets better. There is something timeless about a great old bar and this is one. In a great bar it takes many years for the proper spirits to accumulate and Rico's has this patina if you will.

It was my hangout during my college years and remains always dear. There are always some interesting people there. They have free WIFI too

Very nicely staffed, good variety of dishes including an excellent Ruben, nice salads and good range of tap beers and full bar. The atmosphere is pure, old English library, dark lighting, dark woods and down-the-stairs pool room. Wait staff and chef couldn't be nicer.
