If you want to eat lunch here, get here before 11:45 because there is always a line out the door! Their Chorizo is off the charts!

I've picked up dinner here many times. The food is delicious and the staff is authentic and helpful. They have at least 12 different fillings for empanadas, so that's usually what we stick with - and they are consistently delicious, crispy on the outside and...More

As an Argentinian restaurant, Rincon Argentino is pretty unique in the US. What Americans have heard of as empanadas are generally thought of as Mexican dessert fruit pies. But Rincon Argentino makes savory empanadas filled with traditional and newer stuffings. They are small, but inexpensive,...More

This was a first having Argentinian empanadas, and the spinach variety I had was great, with onion, red pepper, and pine nuts. You really need 2 at a order, which is about $8. The ambience of the restaurant is pure Buenos Aires, which I enjoyed....More

A bit pricey for on-the-small size empanadas. Also a bit too salty. Have had better tasting empanadas.

Amazing, authentic empanadas and choripan. We lived in BA for six months, and Rincon Argentino is like returning for lunch. My new favorite order is the palmito salad (hearts of palm and tomatoes) and a hongos (mushroom) empanada. We've also picked up boxes of empanadas...More

Definitely one of our favorite casual places in Boulder, if not our #1. They're empanadas are really amazing, and don't miss their salsas. The patio is a great option in good weather and they are happy to let us bring our pup, as well.
