Great food for the price. 4 stars is for cash only. I appreciate they are a small business but it is 2016. Also, If you want to do a phone order the staff will frequently choose not to pick up if they are really busy. I have chosen to go somewhere else on 2 occasions because of this.

The food is decent. Authentic. My husband and I had the deep fried tacos with shredded beef. Tasty - especially with the homemade hot sauce. But $10 for two tacos, a spoon of rice, and a spoon of beans seemed a bit steep. A to-go order of chips and salsa was almost just as much.

We've been going to Rico's 10 years --- fun to watch their growth. Delicious, clean, pleasant, friendly take out. A no-brainer.

My family gets Rico's take-out on a regular basis. The food is very tasty and the portions are generous. They prepare the food on the quick and they have very friendly staff. Keep in mind that Rico's is cash-only and take-out only.

What I love about this place is that everything is SO fresh. I would love if they had a sit-down restaurant, but I work around that. This is a wonderful place to experience and I always look forward to going back.

We read the reviews and thought we'd give it a try. We were happy we did. I had chicken tacos; my sister had barbacoa (the original barbecue). The chicken had just the right amount of spices and was moist. My sister raved about her tacos. The tortillas are homemade as was the pico de gallo. If I'm ever in town... More
