AbFab. I have eaten steaks all over the world. This, best to date. Superb service and friendliness. Very welcoming staff. We travelled 100 miles round trip out of our way to get to Rico and would double that easily again.

Five minutes in, we knew we were in a special place. Cozy atmosphere, warm hospitality, and an enticing menu, with a wide range of appetizers and salads to get us started. We had trouble choosing between the chicken (one of their specialties), the salmon or the vegetarian lasagna with the wild chanterelles (our table-neighbors couldn’t stop talking about it), so...

When you drive through Rico, CO, you would never expect to find a treasure of a restaurant like the Argentine Grill.. The small menu has something that you will love, and it will be fantastic! The waiter was very friendly, attentive, and gave excellent service.. a quote from my mother: "The best service I have ever had in a restaurant."... More

My friends and I decided to try it out since we lived next door at the Rico Hotel but apparently getting there 10minutes before 5pm is a sin, because we got run off even though the only thing we asked for was a glass of wine. The cook/owner is very rude.

Stopped in for "Happy Hour" there were 2 tables sat inside & 1 outside. We were turned away stating they couldn't serve us bc they were too busy. After reiterating a second time we were just stopping for a glass of wine she said "uh sorry I'm just too busy" Walked down the street to Enterprise for great food, wine... More

This restaurant rocks, like something you would have found in Gold Hill years ago. The chef and is wife used to run a five-star restaurant in Dunton before relocating to Rico. Glad they made the move. With years of experience, they deliver something which can only be described as top-notch. The food is always excellent (I took my family and... More

I have been coming to Telluride and Southern Colorado for over 15 years. Consistently the restaurant and the chef at the Argentine Grill is amazing! 5 star food in a cute mountain town near Telluride. This restaurant is better than any of the top Telluride restaurants. Thank you for the great meal last night! I can noo wait to come... More

This is so worth the Gorgeous drive from Telluride! The only problem is that it is poorly marked--hopefully they will have better signage soon. It's right on the main highway, but if you pass the gas station on the other end of town, you've just passed the restaurant.

This is my favorite restaurant in SW Colorado, if not the entire SW region. Excellent food, and unpretentious menu. Always had a great experience every time I've been here. Still cant believe such a wonderful restaurant exists in such a small town. Bravo
