It's close to my house and it has cheap drinks so that's why my friends always drag me there. But if it were my choice, I wouldn't go. The food is horrible. The inside of the restaurant is very small so you feel like you're on top of other patrons and very enclosed. Plus the tables are greasy and sticky.... More

It doesn't look like much from the outside, which is why I guess we didn't try it sooner. It's small inside, but much nicer than we were expecting. EXCELLENT service and by far the best mexican food in the area. Can't wait to go back.

Tiny place off the path and not much on looks. But hey, the food was pretty good and in the end that's what I went there for. Not a place I'd seek out finding or going to but if I were nearby and hungry I wouldn't hesitate to turn back in there and eat again.

We saw this on the web when looking for local favorite restaurants. It was worth the chance. We had the Steak Fajitas for two and it was excellent. Service was superb and was very well worth what the locals praised it to be.

First time at this restaurant, and so glad we chose this one. It is just a couple blocks off of the "beaten path ". The food is really delicious. The family is warm and friendly. How did we miss this place all these years? Great margaritas too! This is the only mexican restaurant we will be going to in the... More

The best Mexican food I found while I was in Acworth, GA. The customer service was great. It is my new favorite spot. They also have great prices. The food is freshly made. I love the lunch plate #6 Chimi. It's a very small restaurant but a must stop.

We were traveling on I75 and I asked my 13 year old son to find us a good place to eat, boy did he. This place has fresh made Mexican fare at great prices. We all had the lunch plate #6 Chimi and it was delicious. We have marked this as one our stops on our way to and from... More

My kids love going to Rico's. If you don't mind a cramped space, you should try it out. The customer service is great, servers are very friendly and the food is freshly made. Big taste in a small space. Great addition to Acworth :)
