I simply love this place. The name made me think it was Latin food and I had a couple Filipino treats as well as poboys and specials of the day that were surprisingly delicious. This place is tucked away on the corner of main st in Buford and does not advertise. The menu is not filled with many choices but... More

Had tickets for Dixie Swim Club at the Sylvia Beard Theatre. It was a cute funny show at a great venue! Stopped at Ricos for an early dinner just 5 minutes from the theatre.. Glad we got there before the real crowd! Wow! They need a larger place with more parking! Service was fast and friendly. Strawberry salad was really... More

Rico's takes food and elevates it. Their menu is creative and their specials that change every day are always so good. I have never eaten anything here that wasn't incredible. The sangria is really good too and it's strong!

Great find in a cute small town in Georgia. Had a wonderful lunch. Excellent Shrimp Po Boy, salads were amazing too. The sangria is to die for--it is a must. We had an excellent waitress who answered all questions with a smile and allowed us plenty of time to make our decisions. The sweet potato fries come with powdered sugar... More

Great food, good service in a unique environment. We ate outside which was a little chilly for an early April day but it was still nice. They have specials which are always good.

Always good food, friendly service and love the changing specials. A neat space as an old gas station turned into a restaurant.

We have often frequented Ricos many times over the past 5 years, and I really don't think I've ever gotten a bad meal. Our favorites are the Chicken Cuban and the Royal Rooster, both with the hash brown casserole. Of course, I change up my royal rooster from the menu description by removing mayo, tomato and Swiss cheese and subbing... More

If you're near Buford, must not miss. Friendly servers, good selections, everything I've had is delicious. I'm from Texas, but every time I go to Suwanee, I visit Rico's for their chicken Cuban, which is a par-tee in your mouth type of sandwich. Their desserts are heavenly, and ample portions are given. Always have some left to take home, sandwich... More

Located in an old gas station I think. Super busy at lunch but they handle the crowds well. Fried green tomatoes were great. Everyone enjoyed their food. Be prepared to wait even midweek. A definite teturn

Someone mentioned Ricos so my husband & tried it out & WOW! Unique food, unique combinations, unique atmosphere. The chicken Cuban w/dipping juice is incredible. The desserts are out of this world delicious! We've been back almost every week since we discovered it! Just go! You will not regret it. The prices are great for what you get!
