I've tried really hard to find a better fillet somewhere in the world, but there's none other than the petit fillet at the Argentina grill!

This is a real surprise of a restaurant in a tiny town between Dolores and Telluride. My wife searched restaurants in Telluride the other day and came up with this one just 15 miles north of a favorite campground where we were staying. It was hard to believe the reviews but we decided to give it a try. We were... More

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

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.
