There are several rico's restaurants. There is one with buffet and one which is open for 24 hours. The food is cooked fresh and cheap. The buffet spread is just right and for about 150 pesos only

Their newly renovated function room looks neat! The All-You-Can-Eat Buffet is affordable and food tastes good! We attended a wedding reception at Rico's last August, we enjoyed our time there especially the newly refurbished function room

I visited this fast food and buffet restaurant a few times during my visit. The price at the time of writing for the buffet is 140 pesos all you can eat. There was a good selection of meat dishes, rice, noodles and some desserts items. Drinks were also available to purchase. A bottle of coke, Sprite or Royal would set... More

This resto has 2 types of buffet; one for P140 and the other one for P175. They offer "lutong bahay" foods. The only difference is the one with the higher amount has unlimited drinks and you'll eat in an airconditioned room. Overall, the food is good. I highly recommend their beef steak and sweet and spicy dilis.

We heard about this restaurant from Biyahe ni Drew, a travel-related mini-television series. When we went on June 8, 2016 at 1:00 PM (lunch service, open from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM), they relocated the buffet area from the roomier second floor into the first floor so that only about twelve tables were available for customer use (seating about forty...

The price is good for the first timers, but if you're always into this Restaurant you will see that their food is always the same, no surprises. Some 'eat all you can' restaurant now provide unlimited drinks like juices, iced tea and halohalo.

It was a very busy night and the people was having a hard time keeping up with the food. This was two big groups of people eating so we had to wait for food. The food was ok. The cost is what is very good about this place. If your taking a group to eat, this is the place to... More
