Interesting menu. Seemed to contain pork belly in almost every daily special. Very good food. Fast. Lots of energy and quite trendy, however it was a very noisy lunch. Very busy at lunch, so others will be waiting on your table. A great place to...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 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.
