Rico's Acai - Elizabeth
- Open Now
Rico's Acai was a really pleasant experience. 1. The bowls are delicious! The fruit is very fresh and you feel great after eating these bowls. As others have mentioned there is not a great deal of Acai in the bowl! It tastes so good it leaves you wanting a bit more. 2. They are fairly pricey. However, the fruit here is a bit more fresh than some other places in the area. I think the prices are pretty good for what you get. 3. Customer service was excellent, however, we had to wait about 10-15 minutes for our order to be fulfilled. They have outdoor seating so you can wait for your food or enjoy your order on nice days.
See photos. This bowl was not fresh and has some weird thing in the bottom. It looked to be prepared long ago and then frozen and taken out of freezer and sent for delivery. Gross. It had something that had frozen in the bottom - but it wasnt water. It was of a plastic consistency. Worst thing is I tried to contact the store - left a message on voicemail AND emailed them. Never heard anything back. So hence this review.
This place never seems to disappoint me. The last time I was in NC I googled acai bowl and found their little hidden truck and it was great then and it's still great now. Their acai bowls lack nothing! Beyond delicious, but; you don't have to take my word for it. More for me I always say
Waited 15 mins for two bowls. Paid nearly $12 for a medium and its 90% granola, peanut butter and bananas. Cant taste the Aa, total waste of money.
Update: Rico's has had the large bowl the past few times I've been. I'm happy. Original: I like Rico's, and go there fairly often, but I have noticed several times... months apart... where you don't have large bowls. Like you force people to buy a small because you don't have plastic bowls. The cynical part of me thinks you're just trying to maximize your profit margins. Regardless, you have lost some of my business on a few occasions because of it. How hard is it to find/buy a few months supply of disposable plastic bowls?
