ALL TIME MEXICAN CUISINE FAVORITES

“Rico Foods, I love your tamales and burritos, you should open a restaurant for sure!”

Our dishes are being slimmed down in both size and complexity with pricing suitably reworked. Suffices to say entrees are dropping from the $20-$30 mark, to closer to $12-$16.

Tasty alcohol drink cocktail tequila with lime and salt on vibrant dark background.

TEQUILA BAR

The best and most sophisticated selection of renown tequilas.

Nothing promises a good time like a good ol' shot of tequila.

But not all tequilas are created equal. Some are perfect for Margaritas and other tequilas are meant for sipping.

ABOUT RICO

img_12

Frida Bistro was perhaps the first big name in town to really push the envelope of Mexican cuisine. Eight years is a long time in the restaurant world though, and plenty has changed since our founder, Jorge Fierro, first started welcoming diners into his restaurant.

Right now it’s fair to say that the current vogue is on more affordable, casual dining.  The upcoming evolution sees Frida Bistro evolve into Rico Cocina Y Tequila. 

What’s not changing is the vibrant and fun restaurant space that’s always been a joy to dine in. The hard working crew out from and back and the affable Fierro all remain too. Also staying put is the patio out front which is perfect in warmer months for brunch.

What People Say About Us:

I am new to Utah (Born/Raised in Alabama), and I met a couple friends at this amazing establishment. The owner was amazing, and made sure the Service was top-notch. I now have a place to go eat, and enjoy some time with friends and family. If you have never been it is a must!

Michael McCullers

Food and service as “high art“ in Salt Lake City. If you were to ask for a shot of tequila before your dinner, it likely would come shaken, with a wedge of lime on the side of the champagne flute. Didn't I say, “high art?”

M.j. Orton

The food is pretty dam incredible! It's not you typical Mexican restaurant! The space itself is flavored with beautiful art inspired by Jorge's taste and heritage.
Exquisite food, great service and hospitality in a comfortable and artsy setting!
¡¡Viva La Viida!!
