It's a place to go to because of convenience. It's not our favorite Tex-Mex. The service can be good and at times not very good. At times they can leave you waiting on the bill forever and then clean the table while you are just...More

Even though this is the closest restaurant to our house we drive 5-10 miles on any given night to go some place else. The food quality has gone down over the years, there's a few decent waiters, the drinks aren't that good and the atmosphere...More

Not a terrible place but definitely nothing special. We only go if our regular place is too crowded and we can't wait. Clean and neat, pleasant service. Food neither particularly good nor bad. Margaritas not worth buying.

Went to have lunch with some friends. Had carnitas fajitas. The carnital were very tender and flavorful. Service was good. It's a very attractive and clean restaurant. I will return.

One thing after another with this horrible place. The only reason I ever kept going back was because it's right next to my house and I really wanted to give it a chance. Shards of glass in the frozen margaritas, reheated food that has been...More

I find it extremely hard to believe that either of these things would ever happen in our restaurant, Jonathon. The idea of glass being in our beverages is absurd -- we would've noticed the incident that would've caused this, and would never under any circumstance...More

Signed up for offers via text, because I liked their food. At first worked fine, but did not work the last 3-4 times. Called the Manager over this time & he said there was nothing he could do. I feel this is a scam. Food...More

Although I'm glad you guys enjoyed your meals, Heidi, it's a shame the skinny margarita wasn't your favorite. Although we believe the quality of the ingredients are reflected in the price, I'm sorry you didn't think so. That's good feedback, though, and I appreciate it....More

Service was good; lunch menu is limited; no senior discounts. Food was served lukewarm; my chicken enchiladas were ok, enough chicken but not hot. Wife's beef enchiladas had little meat and watered down chili sauce -- not meaty chili. Also her enchiladas were thick flour...More

It's a shame you weren't the biggest fan of the enchiladas, TJ. Watered-down chili is not the standard, and it's shocking to think yours was served like that. I know it's been a while since you wrote this, but I hope you've been back to...More

Families always seem to gravitate toward Rico's Mexican Grill. In fact, Interfaith of The Woodlands voted Rico's as the 'Best Family Dining' restaurant. Folks love the comfortable surroundings, authentic Texas décor and unique experience only found within these walls. How about the food? Well, you can be the judge of that with sizzling, tender fajitas, perfectly salted rice and beans, fish tacos, burritos, crispy chips and bragging rights for the best salsa within a thousand miles. Each location features vibrant dining rooms, a full bar, patio and a private banquet room at select locations. Live entertainment can also be enjoyed here most nights, to teleport you and your family south of the border and back in time. We make everything fresh to order and look forward to serving you for many more years. Gracias!
