“the service keeps this place going”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2012

basic decor, and so so food, though the breakfast buffet is better than would be expected are held together by an exceptional staff of truly friendly servers and support folks.

“Good food, quiet atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

Rico's was fairly priced with good food. They had a good children's menu, and while it was a quiet atmosphere, we didn't feel like the kids were a hinderance.

“Excellent Eggs Benedict!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2012

Our server was very pleasant and welcoming. The atmosphere was nice and seemed tranquil while we enjoyed our breakfast. The only complaint would be that it seemed to take a long time for the kitchen to prepare our food. We were becoming concerned because we were running out of time before our meeting started and then we had to rush in eating our breakfast.
