Rico's has been on my must local eatery for a while. All I can say is... why didn't I come here sooner!! The atmosphere is loud, but oddly comfortable. And the service is impeccable. It's becoming an every Saturday pre-ritual game day before my daughter's basketball games. My family and I are addictive. The chicharrones are crispy and the sauce... More

We have been going to Rico's for years. His food has always been the best! You never know what his specials will be because he throws them together at the last minute and they never fail to satisfy your tastebuds! His regular menu is also very pleasing. My favorite is the Royal Rooster and my wife loves the Strawberry Salad.... More

Nice little restaurant in old gas station. Not an elaborate menu - but a good choice of items. Food was delicious, service was great, and staff was very cordial. A great fun lunch destination.

Went for dinner and had fried fish. Very good! Portions seemed a little small for the price. I will go back.

Excellent food and service first of all. This place has all the charm of a cozy urban diner and has unique choices that are delicious! We never waited for anything from our attentive server, but never smothered. Will be back for sure

Homemade everything! Would recommend going with friends or family but not as a romantic date night. All the dishes are excellent and the service is impeccable. Who knew eating in a converted gas station would be so gourmet.

Can't stay away from Rico's! Love, Love, Love this place, especially the Chicken Cuban. The mussels on the appetizer menu are beyond words and the homemade Sangria is the best ever! Everything is to die for...nothing on their menu will ever disappoint. The specials are really out of this world "Special" and keep you coming back for more. The best... More

Stopped in for lunch today to celebrate a birthday. I was with one other person and we had a third joining us. When the hostess asked "how many" I indicated we had one person on the way. She said she would seat us when the last person arrived. The place was totally EMPTY. I asked her if she would let... More

We always order the lumpia to start with. Crispy and light! My husband likes to try one of their nightly specials but I can't get past the fried green tomato salad! I let him experiment and I always get the same thing! Never have had a bad meal here!
