The place is small, maybe a bit loud due to the building, but that is also part of its' charm. It is in an old auto garage. On the weekends during brunch lunch hours they have an awesome guitar player - and he is not too loud. All the food is great. They are smart not to try and do... More

I have been trying to find a place to eat lunch or dinner that has excellent food at a affordable price for 6 months. I found it today at Rico's. Limited menu which means in this case everything is excellent. A converted gas station, Rico's is a place you will want to go back to over and over. Try the... More

While driving back to Atlanta from North Carolina, we stopped into Buford for lunch. Ricos is located a converted garage on the corner of the main street in old town Buford. Most of the tables were filled for lunch. We were seated quickly and our server promptly greeted us and shared the daily specials. The menu has several interesting options... More

What a great treasure is Rico's World Kitchen. Nestled in downtown Buford, this quaint little restaurant contains quite a punch. The food is awesome, and the menu changes often. If you visit here once, you will be hooked and this will be a regular stop.

I never miss an excuse to dine at Ricos! It's a bit of a drive for me, but that won't stop me. A friend of mine wanted to go out to eat on Saturday night and had never been here, so that was my excuse. There is nothing ordinary about any of Richo's dishes. It's all fresh and homemade. We... More

This was my second time having the pleasure to enjoy a strawberry cake from Rico's. First at a Baby Shower and second for a Birthday. Well worth the money! (Prefer to pick-up and enjoy at private location as it is hard to get timely & comfortable group seating in the restaurant... Other food 3 Stars.)

Was in the area saw the reviews for this place were really high. So, expecting greatness, stopped here and found there was a bit of a wait - around half an hour to 45 mins. The ladies at the front were nice, ordered a wine & beer while we waited to be seated. Once we got a table, placed an... More

Wonderful food in a converted garage. Trendy, loud and busy, but when you taste the food, you will know why it's so popular. I had the Oyster Po Boy and my husband had the Chicken Cuban. The service was impeccable. We will be back.
