Oakland: Rico's Diner
Sometimes you just get tired of eating sandwiches for lunch every day. My coworkers and I took our lunch break one day at Rico's Diner, just one block from our office:
We weren't the only people tired of sandwiches:
You place your order and pay at the counter, then wait for your food to come to your table.
I took the simple route and got the cheeseburger, but splurged on tater tots:
Burgers are beautiful:
So are tater tots. No. Tater tots are more than beautiful. Tater tots are downright sexy.
Don't expect gourmet burgers at Rico's, but do expect to be satisfied. Though $5.99 is a bit much for a basic cheeseburger, there aren't many options around my office. Rico's is a good place to go if you're seeking a break from boring old sandwiches.
