We’re from out of town and the person at the front desk at our hotel suggested going to Tejon Street for some nightlife. She was right! Got out of our car and stopped a couple walking down the street to ask for a recommendation of where to have a lite bite and listen to music. They suggested Poor Richard’s/Rico’s - and even walked us to the door. How welcoming to their city was that! It was the perfect place for us. Healthy food and music by Bill Snyder and another man (whose name I unfortunately didn’t get). My partner had the hummus and minestrone soup, both of which were very good. I didn’t eat. But I so enjoyed the music. Really a delightful evening.

My husband and I lived in COS for 8 years. We are vegan and this was our go-to place for affordable, healthy food, great atmosphere, friendly staff and good by-the-glass wine selections! Situated in heart of downtown - always a great place to people watch.

On a recent evening we spent a very pleasant 3 hours in the back patio at Rico's with cool adult beverages, an inquisitive squirrel, and some tasty nibbles (the hummus plate and garlic knots), yum! This patio is a star with a nice mixture of sun and shade, flowers, and quiet, which is a bit weird since we are in the heart of downtown. The house wines and other drinks are a good value and the staff are stars. Another find night at Rico's kicks off the season!

Nothing better than the back patio on a nice day! We enjoy how accommodating the staff always are: they let you taste wines before buying a glass and tailor make the meals to "fit our diet restrictions" making you feel FINE about doing so. SO often at other places the wait staff seem annoyed, put out, or seem to not even listen as we explain our food allergies and the foods we would like left off the plate. NOT at Poor Richards or Rico's. Inside seating is limited and often there's a live musical group playing which can make talking difficult, but outside is always perfect!

Part of Poor Richard's complex, it offers coffee, lattes, beer, wine, and a large menu of pizza, burgers, sandwiches, salads, soups and stews. Open for lunch and dinner, it is the perfect downtown meeting place. With numerous electrical outlets and WiFi, Rico's can provide a safe harbor for even the most deeply connected techies. A great meeting place in downtown Colorado Springs.
