Does anybody know what Rico's is close to? When I pulled that address up on Mapquest - it's showing it on the corner of Kingshighway & William ST?

It is in the same building as the detail shop on the corner of kingshighway & independence. In front of Hobby Lobby.

Hobby Lobby Parking Lot. The former Custard Place and Gas station/Car Wash.

Thanks! Have driven by there but guess I never noticed it. Never been inside - but seems like an odd location & bit run down for a "gourmet" eatery? Anybody tried it yet?

Anybody know where Ruopp and Ruopp are located? I am sure I will have candy that could use a new home on Nov 1st and I can't think of a better place for it to go!

Roupp and Roupp is at 1818 Broaday in Cape Girardeau.

Hey, what about reporting on important stuff, like what is going on with Stevie's Steakburger?

Hope Rico's does well, but geez...how many businesses have failed in that location? Has one EVER prospered there in the history of the building??

TommyStix, I have heard this too and talked to both the restaurant's owner and a property owner in Jackson where the potential BWW could be located. They're not ready to announce anything official at this time. I'll keep you posted!
