“Date Night Favorite”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

This is one of our go-to spots for date night. It's casual, but feels adventurous. We love to travel, so really enjoy the worldly flavors and travel photos on the wall. Friendly staff, awesome food, funky little eatery in the heart of historic Buford.

“Great food!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We had lunch at Ricos World Kitchen and the food was wonderful. The Chicken Cuban was our favorite and the Royal Rooster was a close second. Nett's Lumpia's were also very good. One in our party had the crabcake starter and it was disappointing. Much too "fishy" tasting and dry. Won't order this again but will definitely have the Chicken Cuban and the Royal Rooster when we're in Buford again.

“Excelent food!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

The food was surprisingly wonderful! The portions are enough to share. Everything was fresh and inviting. The servicer was very accommodating and knowledgeable about the menu. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 was because it was very very loud in the dining room. We were having to yell at each other and still could not hear. Will go back but might try sitting outside next time.

“So very FABULOUS!!”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

First visit to this wonderful restaurant! I was IMPRESSED! The wait staff knew their stuff - answered questions about menu items and rattled off specials like pros! We started with Netts Lumpia in the beef and pork and an order of the Fried Green Tomatoes as shareable appetizers. The chef brought our appetizers out to the 3 of us at the table and decided we needed an additional order of green tomatoes at no charge. How great! My favorite appitizer was the Netts Lumpia, the filling was so delicious.
For my main course I had the Apricot, Ham and Brie sandwich. It was really tasty. The ham was thick sliced, baked ham, not deli ham. It was nice and warm and served with Sweet Potato Chips. The chips were quite possibly the best sweet potato chips I have ever had. Nice and thin, not greasy. My friends tried the Fried Green Tomato & Portabello Mushroom sandwich and the Fresh Catch PoBoy. Both were impressed.
For dessert we shared a chocolate peanut butter cake and a banana pudding. Both desserts were great, but the banana pudding was the favorite at our table.
An overall great experience. The restaurant is housed in an old gas station, very unique in both atmosphere and dining choices.
